The cruelest dream, reality. — The Offspring
Some days, I get a bit cynical. On days like this, I like listening to fairly angry, despairing music. Just thought I would share.
Love is the triumph of imagination over intelligence. — HL Menchen
A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous. — Ingrid Bergman
Love is of all passions the strongest, for it attacks simultaneously the head, the heart, and the senses. — Voltaire
Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand. — Mother Teresa
Treasure the love you receive above all. It will survive long after you gold and good health have vanished. — Og Mandino
Sometimes I’m in a mushy, lovey-dovey mood. So I thought some great love quotes would be perfect for today.

Been thinking a lot lately about civil rights. They’ve been in the news a lot. Bottom line: everyone has a right to live as long as it doesn’t hurt others.

The greatest way to live with honor in this world is to be what we pretend to be. — Socrates
It is no sin to attempt and fail. The only sin is not to make the attempt. — Suellen Fried
Some wise words to start off this hump day. I especially love the first quote from Montaigne. This summer I am all about taking advantage of the days given. The boys and I are constantly on the move, spending as much time together as we can.
If I had to live my life over again, I’d dare to make more mistakes next time. — Nadine Stair
Security is not the meaning of my life. Great opportunities are worth the risks. — Shirley Hufstedler
Let’s be risk takers… But I am a bit scared to take risks. Maybe let’s start small. Baby steps toward risk. A plan. I like it.
Nothing is interesting if you’re not interested. — Helen Macinness
Time and time again I come back to this idea. You can’t force people to get involved if they aren’t interested in the subject. I’ve been trying to get the boys into new foods and activities. Unfortunately this isn’t working very well. I need to let the boys come to me. But the waiting is killing me!
