Quotes

I have become addicted to quotes. Not just from famous people but everyday people too. I decided to make an informal quote page just for fun.  If you have one to share, send me an emailI will start with a quote from me.

  • “A life without love is like a book without words, so write the words and never forget love.” ~ Lori O’Gara
  • My daughter, **knees cracking while standing up**:  “ugh I’m getting old.”
    My granddaughter, sucks in breath (shocked): “But you’re brand new!”
    Daughter: “oh no, not anymore….”
    Granddaughter: “well where did you come from?”
    Daughter: “dinosaurs.”
    Grandaughter, 3 years old going on 20: hands on hips “No. You definitely did not!”
  • Here is a funny one from my grandson, Haidyn. He and his sister were fighting like brothers and sisters do. She proclaimed that he was mean and she was no longer his friend. His response: “Oh Yeah, but you’re still my sister!”
