Never grow a wishbone daughter, where your backbone ought to be. –Clementine Paddleford
Everyone wants to whine about the government. In the USA, we all swear the government is broken and our representatives have gotten out of hand and out of touch with the people. If you truly believe this then go vote! Vote the old guys out of congress. Vote out the people that have been in that chair for 10 years while your state has been suffering.
You will have between 3 and 5 people to vote for President. Take an hour to read up on them, then go vote.
Learn as if you were going to live forever. Live as if you were going to die tomorrow. –Mahatma Gandhi
I love this quote. It was my class motto.
Kindness has converted more sinners than zeal, eloquence or learning.
-Frederick William Faber
This is so true. I have learned this, on a deeper level, within the last 2 years or so.
Also, this is my 1,000 post! Yay!
I have so many more that I want to share. I am still enjoying this.
Guilty? Yes. No matter what the motive, love of ease, or a desire to save from suffering the unborn innocent, the woman is awfully guilty who commits the deed. It will burden her conscience in life, it will burden her soul in death; but oh, thrice guilty is he who…drove her to the desperation which impelled her to the crime!
-Susan B. Anthony The Revolution, 1869 (on abortion)
A woman must not depend upon the protection of man, but must be taught to protect herself. –Susan B. Anthony
Since it is the 45th Women’s Equality day, I gave you two quotes!
Women’s Equality Day commemorates the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, granting women the right to vote. In 1971, after much work, and at the urging of U.S. Representative Bella Abzug (D-NY), Congress designated August 26 each year as“Women’s Equality Day.” This day was selected to commemorate the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution on August 26, 1920. This amendment granted women the right to vote. This was the culmination of decades of effort by women suffragettes and other groups. Their efforts dated back to first women’s rights convention in 1848 at Seneca Falls, New York.
You can celebrate this day in a number of ways. First, stop and celebrate the accomplishments made in gaining the right to vote, and towards equality for women. Second, be sure that you are registered to vote in your county before October! Third, sign a petition or educate yourself on a rights groups in your area.
Life is the first gift, love is the second, understanding the third. –Marge Piercy
Here is your quote for the weekend. I hope you can be understanding, in that I’ve gone through a lot this year. Please keep visiting my blog. It is my outlet and something that makes me happy.
When love is not madness, it is not love. –Pedro Calderon de la Barca
I really like this quote. What do you think? After 9 years of marriage, I understand this quote even more.
Love rules without a sword, Love binds without a cord. –Anonymous
I hope you have a lovely weekend!
Skepticism has not founded empires, established principles, or changed the world’s heart. The great doers of history have always been men of faith.
-Edward Hubbell Chapin
Have faith, and have a great weekend!
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.
Life isn’t about finding yourself, its about creating yourself.
– George Bernard Shaw
I found this quote when I was 18, and it has profoundly impacted me. I set out to create myself, and while I found out that it is an ongoing process, at least I know that I am responsible for myself and my actions.
The art of progress is to preserve order amid change and to preserve change amid order. -Alfred North Whitehead
I hope you all have an orderly weekend!
Art is a lie that makes us realize truth.
We all know that Art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth, at least the truth that is given to us to understand. -Pablo Picasso (Spanish Artist and Painter. 1881-1973)
Art is complicated, and wonderful, and confusing, and necessary!
