Quote Challenge – Day One

A quote that describes you.

This was actually tougher than I thought, I have several favorite quotes and found myself hard pressed to choose just one. So I didn’t….LOL. I hope you'll post a quote about YOU in the comments, or if you're playing along post a link to your blog.

The first is MY quote, written in a public forum shortly before I went full-time RVing. It still stands as true.
"I refuse to sit around waiting for the perfect tomorrow, I'll continue to enjoy my imperfect todays." ~ Donna Yeaw McNicol  6/2007
The second comes from my other passion, motorcycle riding.
"I may be lost, but since I'm riding, I don't care!"  ~ unknown


  1. "Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery. And today? Today is a gift. That's why we call it the present."
    "Stand up for what you believe in, even if it means standing alone."
    You haven't lost your smile at all, it's right under your nose. You just forgot it was there."

  2. 1.)Always be yourself. Never try to hide who youare. The only shame is to have shame.
    Always stand up for what you believe in. Always question what other people tell you.
    Never regret the past. It's a waste of time. There's areason for everything. Every mistake,
    every moment of weakness, every terrible thing that has happened to you. Grow from it.
    The only way you can ever get the respect of others is when you show them that you respect yourself
    and most importanlty, do your thing and never apologize for being you.

    2.)We live the life of an unfinished novel, still waiting to be written. Depending on how we live, the longer the chapters. Depending on how interesting we are, the more we appeal to others. We're often judged by our covers. Sometimes, some people decide to just quit reading us. We're just forgotten until someone finds us. Our characters can develop throughout the novel, but our chapters can never be edited

    3.)What we are today is result of our own past actions;
    Whatever we wish to be in future depends on our present actions;
    Decide how you have to act now.
    We are responsible for what we are, whatever we wish ourselves to be.
    We have the power to make ourselves .

    These three quotes are really my favourite and completely describe ME ...and my thinking towards life :)

  3. I love and collect quotes, in fact I have a quote book on Amazon. But it's still very easy for me to quickly think of my favorite because I crafted my blog around it and it's the one I return to time and time again ... It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are. ~e.e. cummings

  4. A story has to be a good date, because the reader can stop at any time... Remember, readers are selfish and have no compulsion to be decent about anything. ~ Kurt Vonnegut

  5. Given the spate of rejections I've received from agents over the past few months, the quote that describes me best comes from the song "Shellshock" by the band New Order:

    "Hold on, it's never enough,
    it's never enough until your heart stops beating.
    The deeper you get, the sweeter the pain.
    Don't give up the game until your heart stops beating."

    ...because I'm too stubborn (stupid?) to give up. :-)
    Some Dark Romantic

  6. "I just know that if you want to write and don't becaue you don't feel wothy enough or able enough, NOT writing will eventually begin to erase who you are." Louise De Salvo, Writing As a Way of Healing

  7. “When I write, I feel like an armless, legless man with a crayon in his mouth.”
    ? Kurt Vonnegut


I'm tired of talking to myself. Drop a note, please?
