The Quote about being Strong

You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have. -Unknown

This is a quote that has been copied and shared all across the internet, but I would like to know who said it. It is very true. I have found out what strength really looks like this year.



A Quote about the Night

Blessed to us is the night, for it reveals the stars.  -Anonymous


Yeah, the picture is blurry, but it’s the only one I have of a star.



Handling Life



I used to have a handle on life, but it broke. –Anonymous





I did not feel inspired by the photo prompt for Friday Fictioneers this week. It is probably me and not them. I am really tired. I also forgot to post a tanka for Tanka Tuesday. Next week will be the last tanka that I will post for a while so don’t miss it (as always, follow me with your email to get all of my poems). The month of March will be a CRAZY month for me at work, so you will not hear from me much. Please be understanding. I am in a transition period in my life. I don’t know what this summer will bring, and I dare not look as far forward as the Fall.


The Only Time You Have Too Much Fuel

The only time you have too much fuel is when you’re on fire. -Unknown Author

I don’t know where this came from, but I really like it. It may be a military quote. Have you ever heard it before?

Roses Among Thorns

Some people complain because God put thorns on roses, while others praise Him for putting roses among thorns. -Anonymous


There has been a lot of complaining about God, but if you look carefully, you will see reasons to praise in that same situation.

When You Throw Mud At Others

When you throw mud at others, not only do you lose a lot of ground, you also get your hands dirty. -Unknown


As it is campaign season, I thought I would share this quote. I don’t know who said it, but I like it.


A Quote on Existence

fully bloomed daffodil,yellow flowers,flower in sunlight,morning daffodil,

We could learn a lot from crayons:
Some are sharp, some are pretty,
Some are dull, some have weird names,
All are different colors;

But they all exist very nicely in the same box.

The sky and the soil.

The soil in return for her services keeps the tree tied to her, the sky asks nothing and leaves it free. -Unknown


Here is a quote to ponder over the weekend.

A quote about change.

Change is inevitable, except from vending machines. -Unknown


Another one of my favorite quotes. Short and funny.


A mountainous quote.

A mountain shames a molehill until they are both humbled by the stars.  –Anonymous

There is always going to be someone bigger and better than you. But that doesn’t mean that you are not important.

Friday’s Quote

jewish quote and tree

I believe in the Sun even when it is not shining,

I believe in Love even when I cannot feel it,

And I believe in God even when he is silent.

-Words scratched on the walls of a cellar in Cologne, Germany during the Holocaust, by a Jew.


I will usually not do religious quotes, but seeing as how it’s Good Friday, I thought I would put up one of my very favorite quotes. This has come to my mind during some very difficult times, and helped me to get through.
