Closing Quotes

Some of my friends include a quote at the end of each email they send. When Nora writes, her signature closing is this: May those that love us, love us. And to those who don't, may God turn their hearts, and if he can't turn their hearts, may he turn their ankles so that we will know them by their limping. She says it's an Irish proverb. It always cracks me up!

Yesterday Shannon closed her email with this: "Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there." Will Rogers.

Today I received this one from my friend Jo: "When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, 'I used everything you gave me.'" She credited Erma Bombeck.

I've been trying to think of something creative, but so far all I can think of is this: It makes me giggle; it makes me laugh to think you want my autograph. This is actually the ditty I used to write in friends' autograph books in the "olden days." I mentioned this at break today with the gals with whom I play cards. None of them had even heard of an autograph book. I'm feeling soooo old! Then I told them my sister often writes this: If God had a refrigerator, your photo would be on it.

Do you have a favorite quote?

Donna, I know what you mean. My grandparents had some autograph books up in the attic. One that I remember was "I love you little, I love you big, I love you like a little pig".

The serious one is
"All there is in the world is love and fear; make sure you're on the right side of it."

The other one is
"I cried because I had no shoes, 'till I met a man who had no feet. So I said, Hey man, can I have your shoes?"

Here are a couple that my friends from chorus have.
Swedish Proverb
Those who wish to sing always find a song.

The best way to forget all your troubles is to wear tight shoes.
