Day 3/ 31 - Your favourite quote



One favourite quote?  I have so many favourite quotes though! 

Here are the quotes that say much about how I try and live my life - draw from them your own conclusions about me.


"This above all: to thine own self be true" - William Shakespeare, Hamlet.


"A thousand words will not leave so deep an impression as one deed." - Henrik Ibsen


"A little consideration, a little thought for others, makes all the difference." - Eeyore, Winnie the Pooh

  12. Compassion is a way of being ---> I found that in a fortune cookie!

    The first duty of love is to listen - Paul Tillich

    Choose to be bitter or better.

    Here are a couple I have for work - can you tell I work for a non-profit where we martyr ourselves?!

    Do not be concerned with the fruit of your action. Just give attention to the action itself. The fruit will come of its own accord - Eckhart Tolle

    The way to get things done is to not mind who gets credit for doing them. - Benjamin Jowell

    And of course, my favourite, because of mini Lydia:

    And though she be but little, she is fierce. Shakespeare
