Here are a few more quotable quotes:
Joseph Epstein wrote, "We do not choose our parents. We did not choose our historical epoch, the country of our birth, or the immediate circumstances of our upbringing. But within this realm of choicelessness, we do choose how to live."
Rudolf Dreikurs observed, "A great many people fall in love with a person who offers the least possibility of a harmonious union."
John Gardner wrote, "Life is the art of drawing without an eraser."
Jack Gibbs said, "Self-confidence is the result of successfully surviving risk."
Garrison Keillor said, "Sometimes you have to look reality in the eye - and deny it."
And I like this one. Sir Winston Churchill said, "I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs see us as equals."
