Quotes I Like. June 7, 2009

We all have some quotes that apply to a time in our lives or just strike us in such a way to really make us think…some even make us laugh…here are a few of my favs in no particular order. I will probably update as the mood or the quote hits me.

 

“I can happen all by myself… don’t make me prove it!” ~ Country Dick Montana

 

“20 years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.” ~ Mark Twain

 

“In the Grand Canyon, Arizona has a natural wonder which so far as I know, is in kind absolutely unparalleled throughout the rest of the world…LEAVE IT AS IT IS. YOU CAN NOT IMPROVE ON IT. THE AGES HAVE BEEN AT WORK ON IT, AND MAN CAN ONLY MAR IT. What you can do is to keep it for your children, your children’s children, and for all who come after you.” ~ President Theodore Roosevelt 1903

 

“Human beings often seek to find pristine, uninhabited locations where we can relax and enjoy the natural beauty of our surroundings. However, it seems that everytime people find such a destination they inevitably try to turn it into the place they fled. Development and destruction of the environment are so often the consequence of population… IT’S AS IF WE JUST CAN’T HELP OURSELVES.” ~ Susan Boggia

 

 “Sometimes it takes balls to be a woman.” ~ Elizabeth Cook (Check the video on YouTube!)

 

“Well, I fought with a stranger and I met myself
I opened my mouth and I heard myself
It can get pretty lonely when you show yourself
Guess I could have made it easier on myself
But I, I could never follow…
Well, I never seem to do it like anybody else
Maybe someday, someday I’m gonna settle down
If you ever want to find me I can still be found
Taking the long way around…”
~ The Dixie Chicks

 

Para el cruel destino, vino.
Para el fracaso, de tequila un vaso.
Para la tristeza, cerveza.
Para todo mal, mezcal.
(unknown)
