Mothers Day Gift Ideas

Greetings friends! I am so glad you could stop by today. I have chosen some favorite literary quotes to share because they stir my soul and make me smile. I hope you enjoy them as well. Let me know which is your favorite. Or, please share one I have not listed here...it is a short list, and there are so many wonderful quotes from which to choose!
Have a wonderful Sunday :D

To see their sons and daughters so flushed and healthy and happy, gave them also a reflected glow, and it was hard to say who had most pleasure from the game, those who played or those who watched. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle from Beyond the City

"Happy is the man who can make a living by his hobby!" George Bernard Shaw from Pygmalion

I was something that lay under the sun and felt it, like the pumpkins, and I did not want to be anything more. I was entirely happy. Perhaps we feel like that when we die and become a part of something entire, whether it is sun and air, or goodness and knowledge. Willa Cather from My Antonia

"Money is a needful and precious thing, and when well used, a noble thing, but I never want you to think it is the first or only prize to strive for. I'd rather see you poor men's wives, if you were happy, beloved, contented, than queens on thrones, without self-respect and peace." Louisa May Alcott from Little Women

"Next to trying and winning, the best thing is trying and failing."
Lucy Maud Montgomery from Anne of Green Gables

"Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we know all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?"
Lucy Maud Montgomery from Anne of Green Gables
