July 28th Quotes

"It is easy to believe we are each waves and forget we are also the ocean."
- Jon J Muth

"There is something delicious about writing the first words of a story. You never quite know where they'll take you."
- Beatrix Potter

"To me, the capacity to earn money has never been a measurement of success. It is my belief that people must develop a philosophy early in life which permits them to have as much pleasure, enjoyment and satisfaction now as is possible without injuring themselves or others. Money can help to do this, but it is not and must not become the sole aim of a person's existence. We all know what happened to King Midas."
- Rudy Vallee

"I have been through a lot and have suffered a great deal. But I have had lots of happy moments, as well. Every moment one lives is different from the other. The good, the bad, hardship, the joy, the tragedy, love, and happiness are all interwoven into one single, indescribable whole that is called life. You cannot separate the good from the bad. And perhaps there is no need to do so, either."
- Jackie Kennedy

"No one goes unscathed, we all go through things. We just can't let people's nasty words become our beliefs about ourselves, you know?"
- Elizabeth Berkley

"A conductor should guide rather than command."
- Riccardo Muti

"With opportunity the world is very interesting."
- Beatrix Potter
