What is your favorite quote? or words of wisdom?

  1. Thought it might be fun to hear your favorite quotes or words of wisdom.

    I tend to tell my staff the following...

    "If you are always doing the right thing right, then you have nothing to worry about."

    "when work is no longer fun, it's time to find another job."

    Some of my favorites are:

    May you always find new roads to travel, new horizons to explore, new dreams tocall your own-- unknown

    Don't hate the day... It will hate you back ( My dear BF said that)

    When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a
    new bicycle. Then I realized that the Lord doesn't
    work that way so I stole one & asked Him to forgive me

    This is a wonderful thread!!

    I learned this from a nursing instructor and it has helped me many times over the years when I've needed a litmus-type test to make a decision at work:
    "If you do what is in the best interest of the patient, no one can ever fault you for it."

    My all time favorite is:
    "Love one another."

    I also like my signature saying. It feels incredibly true to me.
