favorite quotes

favorite quotes? ooooh, how do I choose? OH, this question coming to you from ms. martha

I like this one:
"You can preach a better sermon with the way you live then with words"
It's pretty self-explanatory...but I'll explain why anyway...

I'm so OVER the "good Christian" thing. Being a democrat, think people should make their own choices, say a naughty thing or two (or three), see R-rated movies and well, like sex with my husband doesn't make me a bad Christian. I don't need to preach to all who don't want to hear what they are doing wrong (or right)----even if I DO KNOW EVERYTHING. I think I should live my life as wholesomely as possible, with grace, love of my neighbors, kindness to strangers, etc. AND in the way I LIVE my life be an example, not by what I tell people to do. AND...sooo don't tell me what to do---Really ask anyone, I HATE being told what to do.

And, mushy mush stuff, just went to an uppercase living party and bought this quote to put on the wall " Happiness is being married to your best friend". And here is where it gets really mushy...go ahead get a barf-bucket. We have a 'love wall' above our bed where we hang pictures and, things we've found on anniversary trips etc and that's where I'm going to put my quote. I so love my hubby, which is good because we've been together for over half our lives.
They also have this quote that I may get for our hallway where I plan on having pictures of the boys...Boy: n. a noise with dirt on it.

hmm, I'm still having trouble narrowing it down (quotes).

Love wall . . . I've got the emphasis on WASP- not so much -ina on that one. But, I'm sure you'll put the umph on tasteful and lovely, and diminish the sappy and cute. Go TZ! (All secure in her waspinaness!)

You went to a party and left me out? What, do you think since I have Nicki traits, I'd go all crazy with the shopping? Giggle Giggle...

Oh no, wait, even better...you are holding off on including me until you are the hostess and you will rake in the perks of my shopping frenzy!

That is SO Barb of you! :)

Seriously, thanks for playing along in my challenge. Now back to studying you go, Chica!
