Quote of the Day

"Happiness is like a butterfly. The more you chase it, the more it will elude you. But if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder."

- Thoreau

I love that. Here's another good one. Sorry if I misquote as I am too lazy to look it up.

Fate used me meanly
but I looked at her and laughed
That none might know how bitter was the cup I quaffed.
Along came joy and paused beside me where I sat, saying, "I came to see what you were laughing at."

-can't remember ..

I love that one- and I had forgotten about it, so Thank You! :)

Also love Elizabeth's! Mostly 'cause I sometimes laugh when I'm in a moment where I can either cry or laugh. Laughter is much better. Right, Julie??? ;)
