The beautiful Robin at Penseive is this week's hostess for Fun Monday - and if you've never checked her "history of Fun Monday" section, do it today! Robin wanted us to share our favorite quotes.
One that I have been working to assimilate into my life is, "It is better to be kind than right." Tough, for a Virgo like me - one who is critical and intently self-critical. I tried to find the origin of this quote, and the best I can come up with is Ernie Harwell, whose granddaughter sells the quotation as a printed wall hanging.
Another quote I try to embody in my daily life is Rotary International's "Four Way Test," and though it's not really a quote, per se, it is a motto worth striving for.
It is the "Four Way Test of the things we think, say or do..."
Is it the TRUTH?
Is it FAIR to all CONCERNED?
Will it build GOOD WILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
I try so hard to ask myself these questions before opening my mouth. It is more difficult than you would imagine.
Now, go check out some more fabulous and inspirational quotes from this week's participants!
