Day 5 Favorite Quote & A Giveaway!

Day 5 - Your Favorite Quote


I have two favorites.

This first one I found at some point when I was dating E. I thought it fit perfectly and it has only become more true as time goes on. I smile every time I read it.


"If I had to spend my life without you, I'd be forced to spend my life without a part of me. You are so much of me that loving you is not a matter of choice...it's what I do...it's what I am."


I just love this. Perhaps that's one reason blogging is so popular....we all just need someone to listen.
"The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention…. A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words."


Sorry I don't know who said them otherwise I would give credit!

  8. Favorite qoute-
    Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don't complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don't bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality. Wake Up and Live!
