  1. Great quotes. I love “Fall seven times. Stand up eight.” I saw it on a shirt the other day and really liked it. Quotes can be so inspiring. Thank you for sharing them.

  2. Those are superduper quotes. In fact, I’ve bookmarked this post so I can come back and read them when I need to. They are inspirational and full of wisdom, and some of them I am *really* needing right now. 🙂

  4. Hi Barb

    Neat list I love good quotes, here is one of my very own that has been used across the net.

    Most only do what they have to. A few will do what has to be done.

    Thanks for the Read Mitch
