Same for me too :)

I love "If you smile when no one else is around, you really mean it."



Andy Rooney's right. There are those moments when something or someone will come to mind and just make you smile.

I especially like "you don't stop laughing when you grow old, you grow old when you stop laughing" and "two things you give your children--roots and wings"

:-)

I too collect quotes-mine hang all around my kitchen and are pretty whimsical for the most part---range from "here's to good women, may we know them, may we love them, may we raise them" to "friends are the family you meet along the way" (got that one last summer after my best friend passed away--the poor clerk must of thought I was nuts as I was crying when I paid for the plaque) to "raising children is like being pecked to death by chickens" got that one as a goof for my kids---and have several others--a favorite "you don't stop laughing when you grow old, you grow old when you stop laughing" have a slate one hanging by my wall of family pictures that reads "two things you give your children--roots and wings" was given that as a gift a couple months ago--and realize how true that rings.
