Goodreads Quote of the Day, 02-27-2014

“There are too many books I haven’t read, too many places I haven’t seen, too many memories I haven’t kept long enough.”

-Irwin Shaw

Author Irwin Shaw (born February 27, 1913) had written two popular novels when he was placed on the Hollywood blacklist. As a result he moved to Europe, but his work continued to be widely read in America.

“Books are the plane, the train and the road. They are the destination and the journey. They are home.” – Anna Quindlen

I can relate so much to this. I have loved books since I was a young child, and reconnecting with them lately after a period of “I’m too busy”s and “I would rather just watch TV”s…has been like coming home. Thanks to Shelf Awareness for the graphic (https://www.facebook.com/shelfawareness).

Thought of the Day: New Day, New Me

"Every new day is a chance to change your life.

“Every new day is a chance to change your life.

New year, new me?  How about, “New day, new me.”

Each day is an opportunity to start from fresh… to turn our tragedies into triumphs (cliche & platitude all in one – had to do it!), our frustrations into action, our goals into fruition, our mistakes into lessons, our downfalls into strengths, and our lives into how we’ve always wanted them to be.

"Every day is a new beginning.  Stay away from what might have been and look at what can be."
