  • When I walked away from a bad relationship with a 3 year old son, my step-father told me:

    "Ain't no need in me crying over spilled milk, learn from it and move on". So I did and I was much happier, and life seem to be much better for me and my son.

    Power of suggestion:

    My step-father also use to tell me, "That I am going to wake up one day and the world is going to pass me by". I was still in school, I did not care to watch the news, or read the news paper, all I wanted to do was hang out with my friends, go to school, work and back home to go to bed. It may held some truth in his saying back then.

    He also told me, "You are going to have a house full of children". I did not have any kids at the time (20 years ago), but right now I have 3 children and pregnant with a fourth; ages: 16,10,4, and I have 3 step children 23,21,19 and one step-grandson age about 2 that do not live with us. Maybe their is some truth in his saying...

  • The last page of the Woman's Day magazine lists quotations. The June 2 issue has 7 quotes. They include Harriet Beecher Stowe, Winston Churchill, John Updike, Erma Bombeck, James Brady, Cate Blanchett, and Jennifer Lopez. The last 2 were very good, and when I read them I actually thought that perhaps an agent or staff person wrote them. That was terrible of me. Just because someone is an entertainer doesn't mean she isn't intelligent.

    Jennifer Lopez is quoted as saying "Beauty is only skin deep. I think what's really important is finding a balance of mind, body and spirit."

    Cate Blanchett said "If you know you are going to fail, then fail gloriously."
