Quotable Sunday #1


Since this is my first Quotable Sunday, my quotes will be about "Firsts".

If at first you don't succeed, try try again! - W. C. Fields

Be a first rate version of yourself, not a second rate version of someone else! - Judy Garland

I love and have used both of those quotes! But I must say that I use the first one a TON around my son.

Love the Judy Garland quote!!!

Pixie_Allen said...

Great quotes, Ilove the Jdy Garland one best - althoughI also like 'be the chnage you wish to see in the world' gandhi

I also <3 the Judy Garland quote! So applicable today when everyone one wants to be a second rate version of some celebrity instead of embracing themselves (can we get a throw back to the ho at the pool????)

Here is a good one:
"No man means all he says,
and yet very few sall all they mean,
for words are slippery and thought is viscous"
- Henry Adams

justicecw said...

I have to agree with Pixie though...my favorite is "You Must Be the Change You Wish to See in the World"
- Mahatma Gandhi

Liz said...

I haven't ever joined in on Quotable Sunday, I think I will this week, love the quote, definitely always try again, right?!

Kim said...

I used the Judy Garland quote with my son the other day and had to end up explaining it to him. Then he really got it! I just wish there were more kids around these days that would follow that quote. More people need to be their own individual. I don't need to see any more duplicates.

Kim said...

Oh....I'm going to try to remember to do this on Sunday.

**Nicole** said...

Just went over to the blog and found this quote:

One cannot and must not try to erase the past merely because it does not fit the present

Thought it was very apropriate for today! (9/11)

**Nicole** said...

And I need to start taking part in these weekly bloggy things too :D I'm planning on it as soon as I get my blog all caught up from my Wyoming trip :)

Felicity said...

Cute, cute. I like them both. The FIRST one I tell my students all the time, and the second one I think I might tell them soon!

MDtripmom said...

I love your FIRST theme!

MDtripmom said...

Here's another one for you and totally applies to me and my overwhelming to-do list, courtesy of Mark Twain: "The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the FIRST one."

I really like the Mark Twain one from MDtripmom. Thanks for sharing!
