MEMO 518 #vote, #statueofliberty, #comics

“We’ve been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope. But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope. For when we have faced down impossible odds; when we’ve been told we’re not ready, or that we shouldn’t try, or that we can’t, generations of Americans have responded with a simple creed that sums up the spirit of a people: ‘Yes we can.’”
Barack Obama, New Hampshire Primary Speech, 2008

Favorite Quotes: Elizabeth Taylor on getting yourself together


I've probably posted this quote before - it's one of my favorites. This isn't denying that things go wrong, but it's saying "don't live there". As I've been going through some things recently that, as I have previously said, I would not wish on my worst enemy, this quote has lingered in the back of my mind. After a lengthy time of being discombobulated, I'm metaphorically pouring myself a drink, putting on lipstick and pulling myself the F together.... because I can no longer live in the discombobulation and life must go on!!
