 i've had more deaths in my family than anyone needs to endure. when i had to prepare a handout to people coming to the 'service'...i used quotes to convey my thoughts.

quotes for lifting your spirit...

"Once you choose hope, anything's possible."  ~Christopher Reeve

"You wake up in the morning, and your purse is magically filled with twenty-four hours of unmanufactured tissue of the universe of your life! It is yours. It is the most precious of possessions. No one can take it from you. And no one receives either more or less than you receive."  ~Dr. Thomas Arnold Bennett

quotes about ART...creativity...imagination!
"Imagination is the eye of the soul."  ~Joseph Joubert

"What art offers is space - a certain breathing room for the spirit."  ~John Updike 

"Creativity is a drug I cannot live without".   ~Cecil B. DeMille




"You cannot depend on your eyes when 









your imagination is out of focus"  ~





Mark Twain   






"Art is the only way to run away without leaving home."  ~Twyla Tharp 







  and FUN quotes! silly quotes! the lighter side of life...quotes that make you laugh...smile...

these are just a few of my favorites!

"Where's your will to be weird?"  ~Jim Morrison 

"Sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."  ~Lewis Carroll

"I was young and foolish then; now I am old and foolisher."  ~Mark Twain


so, remember..."life’s a garden. dig it" (author unknown).  and don't let anybody tell you that you're just wasting time..."time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted"  (john lennon).   
i think michael jordan sums it all up pretty good when he said 
"Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game."

stay cool.
