I wish I'd said that

I have a widget on my Google homepage that delivers famous quotes each time you go to the site. While I contemplated topics for tonights update, I sat staring at the screen, and hitting refresh, refresh, refresh........

I the Internet gods must have realized I needed inspiration because click after click, I got great quotes.
Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm ~ Winston Churchill

Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it ~ Joann Wolfgang von Goethe.

And one that really struck home with me:
I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing sound they make as they go flying by ~ Douglas Adams (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)

Let us so live that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry ~ Mark Twain

I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world ~ Albert Einstein 

Dang, I wish I'd said that.

When I read some of this stuff, I think to myself, I could have said that! But, I didn't, so when you hit refresh on Google, you probably won't see a quote with my name. 


  1. I'm a sucker for good quotes. I actually kind of collect them in a little book I have. The good ones are so clever, so funny, so wise.

  2. You are so right Karen.

  3. Well Rick, as far as I'm concerned you have an entire Book you've written full of Quotes worth repeating! Each line a gem!


  4. Rick, you can be proud of the things you do say, believe me.

  5. Much of what I have read of your eloquent prose is worthy of being quoted, Rick. I have found myself thinking, 'wish I had such a gifted way with words!' so, you see, it's all relative!

    Quote sare like a wise sentence from a long talk that are filtered out so you know what the 'talker' wanted to say:)
    I love all quotes that you quoted here;)

  7. I am flattered y'all. Thanks!

  8. Like these a lot...especially the Deadline quote:)
    I do believe from what I've read could fill a book up with many wise sayings and thoughts!

  9. As usual, Winston Churchill and Mark Twain touched my heart and funny bone!

  10. I love great quotes, and these are wonderful. Thanks for sharing :)

  11. Excellent quotes! And my personal favorite "Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference." Hope to get there one day.

    By the way, your blog is great - always interesting and thoughtful.
