Quoteable quote

Thanks Ladies for your quotes! Great to see we have some people in the running for the prize pack!! Here is my actual 'scrappy quote':
"The nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."
Lucy M. Montgomery
Anne of Avonlea

Have a great night!

Favorite Quote

Here is mine - quite recently I heard this - I also have a more 'scrapbooky-type' one that I'll post later but I love this one and I hope that Ms. Lagarde is elected as president of the IMF - a change the 'world' could use I think!

Ms Lagarde, who once said France's "obsessive thinking" prevents reform, argues the financial crisis can be partly blamed on the aggressive, greedy, testosterone-fuelled world of stock exchange trading rooms.

"In gender-dominated environments, men have a tendency to show how hairy chested they are, compared with the man who's sitting next to them. I honestly think that there should never be too much testosterone in one room," the divorced mother-of-two said in a newspaper interview earlier this year.
