Tomorrow for our young women's activity we are focusing on having healthy minds and bodies. We are sharing our favorite healthy snacks and our favorite quotes. 

Soooo ... I thought I would turn to my amazing readers to share with me their favorite quotes. I will then share these with the young women. There is no specific theme. We will be picking out quotes to put on tiles. Each young woman will make one for herself and a friend. 

I will start off with a couple of mine that I have not previously shared.

"One of the greatest discoveries true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart." 

"A smile is a curved line that sets things straight."

Last a sonnet by Shakespeare I have memorized:
Sonnet XXIV
When in disgrace with Fortune and men's eyes,
I all alone beweep my outcast state,
And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries
And look upon myself and curse my fate.
Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
Featur'd like him, like him with friends possessed,
Desiring this man's art and that man's scope,
With what I most enjoy contented least,
Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,
Haply I think on thee, and then my state,
(Like to the Lark at break of day arising)
From sullen earth sings hymns at Heaven's gate,
For thy sweet love remembered such wealth brings,
That then I scorn to change my state with Kings.
William Shakespeare
