    "Life is a series of dogs, of wagging tails, puppy breath, old age, death, heart ache and then once again, joy. A house without a pet isn't a home."

    "Some people take a lifetime to make an impact on someone, and some people are so special, they glow, and only need a moment to impact you for the rest of your life. You my dear glow."

    Alty I promise you I am not stalking you, but you did it again with these beautiful insightful words to Chery.

    You're welcome M. :)

    Bushg, I'm honored and flattered. I'm so glad you like what I've written. Funny, when I actually sit down to write, a book, or a story, what have you, the words don't usually flow that well. But, when I'm talking to all of you they just come pouring out (yes M, I know, pouring and pouring and pouring out ;)).

    Thanks for posting my words Bushg. :)

    I was an English major. I even wrote a book (any publishers out there?) but I have had the same, simple favorites for years.

    My favorite - and I have loved this since I was a child, I turned and said these words to my husband on our wedding day and I said them at his graveside - "Where you go, I will go; where you lodge, I will lodge; your people shall be my people, and your God my God. Where you die, I will die—there will I be buried. May the Lord do thus and so to me, and more as well, if even death parts me from you!"

    It's Ruth 1:16-17.

    "Where you die, I will die" is inscribed on our tombstone.

    And the runner up would be: "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing" [Edmund Burke]

    Here's a couple more I've been saving:

    "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." Winston Churchill

    "There's only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that's your own self." Aldous Huxley

    "No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted." Aesop

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face. ~Ben Williams

    Dogs' lives are too short. Their only fault, really. ~Agnes Sligh Turnbull

    One reason a dog can be such a comfort when you're feeling blue is that he doesn't try to find out why. ~Author Unknown

    I talk to him when I'm lonesome like; and I'm sure he understands. When he looks at me so attentively, and gently licks my hands; then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes, but I never say naught thereat. For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes, but never a friend like that. ~W. Dayton Wedgefarth

    Did you ever notice when you blow in a dog's face he gets mad at you? But when you take him in a car he sticks his head out the window. ~Steve Bluestone

    I'm in a dog mood. :)

    Had to spread the Rep Alty but I love those Dog quotes...

    Here's another!

    "A dog is not "almost human," and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such."

    Captain, thought you'd like this one. :)
    Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day; teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks.

    and because it's me. ;)

    Practice safe lunch: Use a condiment.

    Lawyers have feelings too (allegedly)

    To err is human, to blame it on somebody else shows management potential.

    Hard work has a future payoff. Laziness pays off now.

    I R S: We've got what it takes to take what you've got.

    All I ask is the chance to prove that money can't make me happy.

    "Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."

    "To learn to succeed, you must first learn to fail."-Michael Jordan

    He Who Hesitates Is Not Only Lost, But Miles From The Next Exit.

    Learn from the mistakes of others, because you can't live long enough to make them all yourself.

    My mom used to always say "You may not know the reason for another person's rude behavior, whether it is caused by a pinched toe or a pinched life, but you can know this: You will never lead by example as long as your behavior mimics theirs".

    "This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good.What you do today is important because you are exchanging a dayof your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be goneforever; in its place is something that you have left behind...let it be something good."

    "You can't eat the fruit the same day you plant the tree."

    (in other words... if you want to reap the rewards or a certain outcome, you must plant the seeds for such an outcome far in advance and prepare to wait for a while. Don't expect to start one day and have what you want the next)

    "The love you withhold is the pain you carry."

    "Don't give up what you ultimately want for what you want right now."
