Blogging Challenge Q(uotes)

The first thing that came to mind for today was Query, so I figured there'd be a lot of posts about the process. I decided to do Quote. I love to read inspirational quotes. Besides being inspirational, they can be examples of great writing. Following are some that have touched me ... or made me laugh.

Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.
~Albert Einstein

A person who won't read has no advantage over one who can't read.
~Mark Twain

Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold.
~Helen Keller

Some of the greatest battles will be fought within the silent chambers of your own soul.
~Ezra Taft Benson

It was character that got us out of bed, commitment that moved us into action, and discipline that enabled us to follow through.
~Zig Ziglar

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
~Winston Churchill

A man only learns in two ways, one by reading, and the other by association with smarter people.
~Will Rogers

I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me are the number you get in a diamond.
~Mae West

  4. Quotes was my second choice for Q today. I loved the first one, especially knowing it comes from Albert Einstein! Very unexpected.

  5. I love that Albert Einstein one! Here's another of my favourites by him:
    "Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. THAT'S relativity."
