Nominated for the 3 day Quote Challenge Again. 1st day of 3

It escapes me now who the person was who nominated me for the second three day quote challenge. Excuse me because hundreds of people contact me today, so just bear with me.

1. He was a how thinker, not an if thinker.

2. Man not the sum of what he has but the totality of  what he does not yet have, of what he might have.

– Jean Paul Sartell (1905-1980)

3. If you really want to live, we’d better start at once to try.

-W.H. Auden (1907-1973)

Note: I found these in one of my favorite books in my entire collection which is

“Norman Vincent Peale Words That Inspired Him.
A lifetime of favorite writing, poems and quotations.

1. Time flies over us , but leaves its shadow behind. – Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Marble Faun, 1860.

2. Look not mournfully into the past. It comes not back again. Wisely improve the present. It is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy future, without fear, and with a manly heart. – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Hyperion, 1839.

3. Little drops of water, little grains of sand, make the mighty ocean, and the pleasant land. So the little minutes, humble though they be, make the mighty ages of eternity. – Julia Carney, Little Things, 1845.

4. The days forever divine as to the first Aryans, there are of least pretension,
End of the greatest capacity is anything that exists. They come and go like muffled and sales figures sent from a distant friendly party; but they say nothing, and if we do not use the gifts they bring, they carry them is silently away. – Ralph Waldo Emerson, Works and Days, Society and Solitude, 1870.

I threw the 4th one in for good measure because it was my favorite of them all!

The three people I am nominating are to so this same challenge are:

Christ is the Head of this Home, the Unseen Guest at every meal, the Silent Listener to every conversation.


My new found friend had this soon to grace the walls of her new place. I saw it and loved it and had to share it with the world and you, my readers.

Who is the head of your home?

What would others be listening to, if they eavesdropped?

What kind of blessing do you say at each meal?

Idea Concept by Paulette Le Pore Motzko for
Totally Inspired Mind: Where Positive Minds Congregate &
Writer’s Work Lab

A Sweet young lady I met recently who has the whole world ahead of her and is so talented!

I saw a bunch of quotes on a huge bulletin board in a hospital I was at recently and discovered Chrstine was the writer of all of them. It had been her dream to have the world read her poetry and writings. I immediately knew I could easily realize her dream by airing it on Totally Inspired Mind and also on Writer’s Work Lab.  If you could have only seen the look on her face and the sparkle in her eyes at the thought. She gave me some of the most kind compliments I have ever been given in my life and I will always remember them and her fondly. I look forward to meeting her mother one day too.

I want to arrange a time to take a nice photo of her so you can see the young lady behind these words. She has had many struggles in her life but even in the short time I have known her has come leaps and bounds. I wish her and her mother only the best in every way.

“If your perception is full of enlightenment, then I can call you an eternal optimist.”

“Why go for evil when you’re more stabilized at being good; I don’t get you.”

“It takes evil to oppose pure evil, to my perception, it’s only appropriate if you’re fighting for righteousness.”

“You say I’m not supposed to comply so much if I think the person’s wrong, because it’s only fueling the fire. I refuse to think this is being humble. Your own perspective of respect sounds degrading to me. ….Hypocrisy!!”

“Patience doesn’t mean putting up with people’s crap to you? Bitch please!!!”

“The problem is how we think of a situation; it could be positive or negative.”

“Your own perception is openly and frequently the problem. You know why?”

“Boredom is next to depression.”

“Our state of mind is deprived by our own law for ourselves. We are prisoners to our own mind.”

“Always look for something to look forward to.”

“So repetitive to this philosophy: Don’t ever let life pass you by.”

“The goal is to seize the deceptive brain.”

What do Christine’s words make you think of?

Which ones strike a key with you and ring the loudest to you?



For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone. – Audrey Hepburn

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.” – Audrey Hepburn


“Young or old we are the same person. The DNA of who we are remains intact; it never changes. We gain wisdom with each year lived. With pain brings coping skills and courage and strength. Keep the inner child happy and always make time to do something that gives you joy. Then, and only then, can you keep your inner child alive and happy. The child in your heart makes your eyes sparkle and makes people want to be around you.” – Paulette Le Pore Motzko

Study after study has documented that when women have the opportunity to start businesses, own land, and receive credit…entire economies expand. – Hilary Clinton

Women have come a long way since the 60’s when I was a kid and they were still making and pouring coffee for their overpaid male bosses. That used to be written into job descriptions, but now women are making headway in what used to be male dominated fields like engineering, science and the medical fields.

In time I hope to see women get dollar for dollar the same pay for the same job. If they aren’t, it is a crime and just as unfair as being treated differently because of the color of one’s skin or what religious preference one believes.

I bet a woman will find the cure for cancer and I would love to see a woman president. Women give birth and tend to communicate rather than blow up chunks of a country killing children and mothers to hit one target.

The more chances a woman has to be educated, the more she will succeed in life in every way. Self esteem grows in direct proportion to education level too.

I don’t want to see any women have to be dependant on another for survival.
Being financially independent should be a goal of every woman and every parent should teach their daughters they can do anything they aspire to.
