Do you keep a file of your favorite quotes? I actually have a lot of plaques, pillows, wall hangings, etc., with my favorite quotes.  I know them by heart, but I like to have little reminders around the house.

Some are funny.

Martha Stewart doesn't live here and neither does Bob Vila. You would understand this one if you saw my kitchen!!

Cats are like potato chips. You can't have just one.  I think I've taken this one to extremes!

Some are inspirational and talk about dealing with adversity, making the most of the day and reminding yourself that "this too shall pass."

Never let them see you sweat. Another fave. When times are tough, I try to keep cool. I don't always succeed of course, but at least I try.

Ileigitimus non carborundum. Sounds classier in Latin but this was one of my father's favorite quotes and I love it. Translation: Never let the bas----ds get you down. Good advice, always!

And of course, some of my favorite quotes revolve around books and cats.

How about you? Do you have quotes that inspire you, quotes that bring a smile to your face?
