That "impossible" quote is a line from a song lyric in "Cinderella" - a made-for-TV Rodgers and Hammerstein musical. It used to come on every year, kind of like the Wizard of Oz. Followed by Carol Burnett in "princess and the pea" - but I digress. The full lyrics can be heard here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dd0fuaD-OwE although this is not the original version...

Brenda,
Loved the Cinderella quote! We often don't know what we can do until we just get out and do it!

The following quote is from a lady who had a TV exercise show that my mom loved to work out with, even into her eighties. So apparently her philosophy can work.

You can't turn back the clock. But you can wind it up again.

Thanks, Susan. When I read who wrote that quote, I was so surprised. Erma Bombeck was such a funny lady. But I loved that quote.
Cindy: Good quote.

I've loved quotes for a long time but I'm finding it fascinating now to know who they come from. Sometimes it shows us a side of someone we would have never guessed.

Cindy, stubborn and obstinate are often a matter of "you" or "me".

Marly, the Dalai Lama's quotes are so focused on kindness and peace. I met Yeshi Donden years ago, he had been the Dalai Lama's chief physician. Just being in his presence was an amazing experience. We seldom see true serenity and he was a prime example that brought peace in his presence.

"To be rich in admiration and free from envy, to rejoice greatly in the good of others, to love with such generosity of heart that your love is still a dear possession in absence or unkindness- these are the gifts which money cannot buy." Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894)
