Favorite Quotes Tag

Daminika at "Walking in the Sonshine"  tagged me for the "Favorite Quotes" tag. She did it all fancy- smanshy with each quote on its own background. Yeah, I'm too lazy busy for such things so you'll have to just read them all on their own! I've shared some of these before but hey, it says "favorite" and these are mine:

The trail is the thing, not the end of the trail. Travel too fast, and you miss all you are traveling for. - Louis L'Amour

Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day. - A. A. Milne

To be loved and chosen by a good man is the best and sweetest thing which can happen to a woman, and I sincerely hope my girls may know this beautiful experience.

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. - Henry David Thoreau

Over? Nothing is over. It's only the beginning. The kindling of a flame. Feed it, lads. As you fed it with your blood today. Which is the spark of liberty which you've touched afire. This light must grow until every dark corner has vanished and it illuminates the world. - James Otis from Disney's "Johnny Tremain

Do you know your scripture, sir? 'What does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and lose his soul'? - Gatewood from the film "Geronimo: An American Legend"

My God... My God is a God of peace. A God of life, not death." - Gatewood from the film "Geronimo: An American Legend"

April 1865, dear Ma and Pa. - Mack from the film "Shadow Riders"
(This is the opening line from my favorite movie and it always sends shivers up my spine! Guess you have to hear Tom Selleck saying it to know what I mean *Wink*)

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That's why we call it the present. - A.A. Milne
