Claire did a neat post recently about making her own collage...and asked, if we were to repeat that artistic exercise in patience, what ours would say.
Hers had bright colors and several neat quotes. I've been scribbling neat quotes since I was in high school - everything ranging from lyrics from Sting and the Smiths, to parts from the Talmud and lines from books by Amy Tan and George Stephanopoulos.
Here are some that I like...too busy this week to make a collage!

[after his first screen test] The studio guy told me, "Kid, you have no future in this business." I said, "Why?" He said, "When Tony Curtis first walked onscreen carrying a bag of groceries -- a bag of groceries! -- you took one look at him and said, 'THAT'S a movie star!'" I said, "Weren't you supposed to say, 'That's a grocery delivery boy?' "

Listen, if I cared what most people thought at this point in my life I
would be in a straitjacket. I don't care anymore.

There is a common tendency to cling to old ways and methods. Every innovation has to fight for its life, and every good thing has been condemned in its day and generation.
Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility
into flames of achievement.
- Golda Meir
There's nothing better than good sex. But bad sex? A peanut butter and
jelly sandwich is better than bad sex.

I don't understand the hatred and fear of gays and bisexuals and
lesbians...it's a concept I honestly cannot grasp. To me, it's not who
you love...a man, a woman, what have you...it's the fact THAT you love.
That is all that truly matters.
- Al Pacino
The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be
honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you
have lived and lived well - Ralph Waldo Emerson
The things that come to those that wait may be the things left by those
that got there first.

I have bursts of being a lady, but it doesn't last long.
