Victor Hugo.

I saw the anger in the marble and carved until I set it free.

Michael Angelo.

My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me.

Henry Ford

Experience is the name everyone gives to his mistakes.

Oscar Wilde.

Not knowing when the dawn will come, I open every door.

Emily Dickinson

The only sure thing about luck is that it will change.

Wilson Mizner.

BTW why does nobody ever say:

It’s not me – it’s you!

Scarlet: we live and learn:)


love all of these - but i think my most favorite is the one of michelangelo - i saw the anger in the marble and carved until i set it free - speaks to me on so many many levels -

and BTW, i have said "it's not me - it's you" - i said it to both of my [now] ex-husbands... ;)

LOL, LOL...Why, Indeed on your last question! Wouldn't that be refreshing, though no doubt quite hurtful....

I love all these quotes, Pat....A lot of food for thought.

Naomi: glad you like them - they mostly make sense to me.
I did a couple of garden photos also which appeared in the post then disappeared ito blank squares so I deleted them. Life gets tedious don't it?
