That is a great quote. Never heard it before but it's terrific.

Changing the world is a wonderful goal.

What a wonderful quote.

And I agree with you on the cold! Even though I'm from New England, I've gone to school in the South for so long that I've gotten spoiled and now I'm thinking of staying here for good. Can't argue with 60*F Januaries! :)

"Reality" shows are my guilty pleasure--I watch more of them than I care to admit. They make me feel as though I have absolutely no problems in my life.

Happy Sunday!

I have a feeling that convention was nothing like it's interpreted to have been. We're looking at -8 as a high tomorrow.

Teachers are powerful enough to change the world. In truth, they do that every single day. Lovely answers and a beautiful quote. You can come here and stay with me. I have a nice warm RV which serves as our "Guest House". It would be a pleasure to meet up with you!

Mary Poppins is a completely awesome movie. To borrow a phrase, it's practically perfect in every way.

Paula said...

Love your very first answer....to be happy! Who could ask for anything more?

Bev Sykes said...

I'd love to see the battles at the Constitutional Convention too. Do you suppose our guys could get more accomplished if they added beer to their desks?

Love, love, Mary Poppins. Stay warm, friend :)

I love that quote! It's been fun seeing everyone's favorite quotes. Quite the variety.

We saw Mary Poppins on Broadway. It was magical. Our daughter chose that over seeing The Little Mermaid. I love rom-coms. We both picked the Constitutional times. What a pivotal moment for our country. What a great quote!
