    I've been feeling rather negative lately, and thats not where I want to be, as I've worked hard to get away from that.

    So Here is the inspirational quotes thread. Post your favorite inspirational quote with author name if available, and refer back to this thread any time you need a little 'lift.'

    "You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that, my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOOO HOOOOO what a ride!'
    I believe there's a BYCer who has this in their signature. I couldn't agree more!

    Be who you are not who people want you to be-

    Live life like its your last day on earth-

    Never regret somthing you loved because there was a reason you loved it-

    Life will throw at you many different turns and tumbles brace yourself and turn with life and tumble with its dissmays.


    (Have not a clue who these quotes came from but I wrote them down along time ago when I lost my father and they helped me through so awful times.)
