I love classical music; especially Beethoven's music. I found this quote by him: "Tones sound, and roar and storm about me until I have set them down in notes." Ludwig van Beethoven

Marly, I loved the quote you shared, "Try looking at things from a different angle." Unknown
It works in so many ways, recipes, relationships, and problems.

I often think celebrity ideas are overrated, but I enjoy these quotes from Audrey Hepburn.
"I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow in another day, and I believe in miracles."

Susan! I can't agree with you more about celebrities!!! Way over-rated in my books. However, Audrey Hepburn was one lady I liked.
I also believe in miracles.

Thanks Marly,
We often don't realize how worry can poison our days, and waste our energies.

I found this in a magazine at the dentist's office, I'm not sure it would really be considered a quotation but it is something to consider.

"...women who appreciated their appearance, regardless of size, are sick 30% less often than those who wish they looked different."
American Journal of Public Health

I get up every morning determined to both change the world and have one hell of a good time. Sometimes this makes planning my day difficult.

Susan, that is a good one. I'd like to add to that quote. "The most wasted of days is one without laughter", and the unconditional love of a cat or dog or pet.

The quote I posted this morning about laughter was shared in anticipation of getting together for brunch with our three grown kids and a couple of those who are dear in their lives. It was as much fun as I thought it would be. There is so much laughter to share and Rachel's boyfriend's 11 year old son joined us and fits right in. I miss the days around the table at home when they were kids, but love this so much because there are new things to share from different directions.

I think the addition of pets to it is great. How much they become part of a family! I loved a quote from my mom in her later years.
"If you talk to yourself as you get older, people think your mind is going, but you can talk to your dog as much as you want!"
Estelle

Susan: I'm with your Mom on that one. I have long conversations with all of my cats. They are loving every word I say, I can just see it in their eyes, and their tails switching back and forth.
Thanks for sharing with us that enduring quote from your Mom. Hugs.

Susan, so glad you had a good time with your family and had some laughs.
Marly, I talk to my dogs all the time, they listen better than my DH and always look very interested in my opinion! I am sure your cats are the same.

Yes, Diane. Don't get me started talking about my cats and dogs. Here goes: My cats; Amazing Grace "Gracie", Audrey Hepburn, Moon Graffon, Pepper, and Nadia Comaneci are excellent listeners. And- all the dogs I've had listened very well. Luck Dog, who passed away about a year ago, had a bit of a staring problem. He would listen, then he'd just sit there and stare for hours. LOL

Wonderful quote, Marly.

Courage does not always roar, sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying. "I will try again tomorrow."

Good description of courage! I like that, Susan. Thanks for sharing.
On my cat calender there are five or six cats, but one is out of the group, by itself. The caption says, "It's not who you are that holds you back, it's who you think you're not."
