Oodles of Quotes

A habit is an interesting thing to contemplate. Of course there are good and not-so-good ones. There are ones I have been trying to create for a while. Washing all the dishes every day (still looking forward to the day when that is a chore the kiddos can do – 🙂 ), keeping up on the laundry before there are massive piles, and keeping the living room in somewhat of an orderly condition. The living room is one of the most challenging – with three mobile children and one that loves to be held and cuddled. Jacob and Joshua are both getting much better at picking up one toy before moving on to a next, so that’s a blessing. Anyway – there are other habits too, like reading my scriptures daily and reading to my kiddos too.

Today I was thinking that perhaps it wouldn’t hurt to develop little happy habits as well. Having a little me time every day is good. A long time ago I wrote a little list of the things that make me happy – everything from homemade lemon soap to thunderstorms to fresh fruit to building sand castles to well-written songs. I need to dig out that list again and have some happy moments. Here’s to creating all kinds of good healthy habits!

I have found some be-au-tiful quotes. I’m going to list them here and use them for inspiration. Some are about habits and some are ones I stumbled on looking for habit quotes.

“The man who has no imagination has no wings.” – Muhammed Ali

“If you don’t like the news, go and make your own.” – Anonymous

“The job of the artist is always to deepen the mystery.” – Francis Bacon

“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.” – Annie Dillard

“Habits are first cobwebs, then cables.” – Spanish Proverb

“History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.” – Winston Churchill

Since I’m helping with story hour at the library tomorrow – this one jumped out at me:

“Library. Here is where people, one frequently finds, lower their voices and raise their minds.” – Richard Armour

I think that goes for little people too. 🙂

And here’s a quote that sums up what I am trying to do with this 21 Day Challenge:

“Learn as much by writing as by reading.” – Lord Acton

I have no idea who Lord Acton is, but he sounds pretty wise. 😉 Good luck to everyone with their personal quests on this challenge.
