Not sure what you're using these for, but love the idea and your quote! I'm in the middle of making a quote jar, so I'll have to check back. Here's mine (one that I have in my studio):

Be who you are...
Say what you feel...
Those who mind don't matter...
and those who matter don't mind.

~Dr. Seuss

"Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, and ends with a teardrop."
Isn't this lovely. I put it inside a sympathy card.

My all-time favorite...the last lines of Robert Frost's poem:
"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. "

Thanks for the Quote, Melanie. Very timely for me - as my job is relocating and I now have to find a new one.

Here's one of my favorites from a book I read by Ember Case...

"You can't change what has already been, and wishing for things to be different isn't going to make them so."

It always reminds me to stop dwelling on what has already happened and to forge ahead to make things better.
