Quotable MEme Monday

All about MEme Monday with Mommybrain and SupahMommy.  This week is favorite quotes and why.

One of my favorite quotes is:
The average pencil is seven inches long, with just a half-inch eraser - in case you thought optimism was dead. ~Robert Brault
I try to be optimistic.  It's so much easier to be pessimistic about everything.  I have to remind my self that things aren't really that bad.  This quote makes me remember that optimisim is out there and it gives me a smile at the same time which helps with the whole pessimism thing.

Another that Nick and I try to keep in mind:
Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans!
Nick and I live by this quote (line from a song? whatever).  Sometimes we get so caught up in the day to day stuff we forget to enjoy the life we are living.  We have to step back and take a moment to see the life we have even if it is not exactly the plan we made.


  1. I love the one about optimism!

  2. I like both of them. You definitely have to stop every once in a while and make sure you're living the life your making. It's hard when life passes by in a blur of little boy though, huh?

  3. Both are great, I like the second, I need to pass it along to my hubby, he has a hard time realizing that!

  4. I like the optimism one. I might read it to my oldest after school. He tends to be a Debbie Downer.

  5. The pencil quote makes me laugh a little ... as an elementary teacher, it seems the classroom is full of eraser-less pencils ... go figure!


I love to get comments! They make my heart go pitter-pat! Go on comment--I'll do my best to go give your blog some love too!
