    Have a quote by someone you like.....post it here....... I'll start.....Saw this posted in the doc's office today and just loved it:

    Audrey Hepburn wrote this poem as her reply to her recommended "beauty tips", and it was read at her funeral:

    For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
    For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
    For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
    For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.
    For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
    People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
    Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
    As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself and one for helping others.

    pencils cause mis spelled words.

    cars drive drunk and

    spoons made Rosie O'Donnel fat."
