I subscribe to “Quotes of the Day” by bloglines and catch up every month or two, marking some favs.  The ability to say something quickly and with a sense of wit and humor amuses me.  Not saying I agree with these…just going “Hmmmm…”

“I have noticed that the people who are late are often so much jollier than the people who have to wait for them.” –E.V. Lucas

“Part of being sane, is being a little bit crazy.” –Janet Long

“We are generally the better persuaded by the reasons we discover ourselves than by those given to us by others.” –Blaise Pascal

“Love is a snowmobile racing across the tundra and then suddenly it flips over, pinning you underneath. At night, the ice weasels come.”–Matt Groening

“People seem to enjoy things more when they know a lot of other people have been left out of the pleasure.”–Russell Baker

“Television has proved that people will look at anything rather than each other.”–Ann Landers

“The young have aspirations that never come to pass, the old have reminiscences of what never happened.”–Saki

“The world is a tragedy to those who feel, but a comedy to those who think.”-Horace Walpole

“With a stop light, green means ‘go’ and yellow means ‘slow down’. With a banana, however, it is quite the opposite. Yellow means ‘go’, green means ‘whoa, slow down’, and red means ‘where the heck did you get that banana?'”–Mitch Hedberg

“When we ask for advice, we are usually looking for an accomplice.”–Marquis de la Grange

“When ideas fail, words come in very handy.”–Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“Writing well mean[s] never having to say, ‘I guess you had to be there.'”–Jef Mallett

…for kicks, pick a quote, and tell me what you think about it!

ME: “MAGGIE”

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.

Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)

Please know that I am not posting as an expert, but as a fellow traveler. I recommend that you research and double check things on your own before taking any advice or instruction from this site.  Information is given in good faith for the time period in which it was written. I am also an affiliate of the Sure Cuts A Lot software, for Cricut, which means you don't need Cricut cartridges to cut any font or .jpg on your computer.  I get some pocket change for introducing you if you choose to buy it by clicking on my site.  And we all know I need more cardstock, so I do appreciate it.  I sometimes review other products for a fee, but I am not required to give a positive review, and post honestly as to my experience.  I hope you find this useful.
