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!
