Thoughts for Thursday--17


The blog tour for Persistence of Vision (badge in the side bar) doesn't officially kick off until January 13th, but Dia Pelaz of Book Junkie Joint is featuring an interview for me today on her blog. Kind of a preview of coming attractions, if you will. Pop on over and check it out, and be sure to thank Dia for her hard work!

Thoughts for Thursday

Thoughts for Thursday is a new meme hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Readers may respond by either commenting on the quotes I put forward or contributing a quote of their own. Leave it in the comments or a link to your quote in the linky. Whoever comes up with the best one will get some swag and be entered to win a bigger prize later on!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

This week's theme is Happiness!!!

"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened."--Dr. Seuss

"Love is a condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own."--Robert A. Heinlein, Stranger in a Strange Land

"Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go."--Oscar Wilde

"Life is to be enjoyed, not endured."--Gordon B. Hinckley

"Action may not always bring happiness; but there is no happiness without action."--Benjamin Disraeli

"Achievement of your happiness is the only moral purpose of your life, and that happiness, not pain or mindless self-indulgence, is the proof of your moral integrity, since it is the proof and the result of your loyalty to the achievement of your values."--Ayn Rand

What do you think? Which quote is your favorite? Do you have one to contribute?
