Quotes for living

“No man knows how bad he is till he has tried very hard to be good…Only those who try to resist temptation know how strong it is.”
-- C.S. Lewis

“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.”
-- Anne Bradstreet

"We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give."
--Sir Winston Churchill


  1. I love meaningful quotes!
    Oh and thanks for the comments. I responded but here's what I said in response to the Alzheimer's mention so you don't have to go back:

    "Thanks for the info. I’ll have to look into that. We’re not sure if it’s really Alzheimer’s or if she’s just losing it a bit from being stuck in bed for so long. Probably a bit of both. I am in the process of getting a therapist who makes housecalls to come talk to her and help her cope and see if that makes any difference. It couldn’t hurt. Either way, her doctor doesn’t think the meds are worth it with her being in the situation she’s in already. Effin sucks man. Thanks for the kinds words!"
