Do what you have to do …

I am a huge fan of quotes, in fact I have random quotes written on my bathroom mirror with dry erase marker. I also post some of my favorite quotes on my tumblr. So, yesterday I wouldn’t say I “learned” this but I was reminded by the movie The Great Debaters.

Do what you have to do so you can do what you want to do

I am learning something new every day in the month of July! Do you have any fun things for us to learn?

    I carry around in my purse the wet ones individually wrapped antibacterial wipes. These little wipes take out fresh stains like red wine, grease and coffee. These little wipes are a god send.

    p.s. I love, love quotes, too. I have notebooks filled with quotes. I have post it of quotes all over my computer,fridge, car and room. In fact, one of my favorite quotes I got from you, “There is only one success-to be able to spend your life in your own way.” Christopher Morley.

    Hey there. I hope I’m not out of line in doing so, but I came across the BC website today and was intrigued about some of the stuff I have read. Like most there, I’m one of the “Gen Y” group (though still debating if that’s better or worse than “Millenials”), and I’m glad there is a burgeoning site for young professionals to voice their observations and the like on the current state of affairs.

    So I’m taking it upon myself to contact a few contributors there to see how you got introducted to the site yourself, and if you’ve seen a rise in viewers there since you started. And more importantly, do you think the boomers have gotten wind of the site yet?

    Ah, and of course, I thought I’d mention since you enjoy the field, I was curious about a couple aspects of web design layout. I’d love to get my personal site back off the ground (I’m still basing anything I do on old HTML and frames for the most part so I’m a bit archaic I feel) and it’d be cool to bounce some ideas off an actual designer. Just a thought anyway.

    Hope to hear back,
    Ryan L.

  3. It’s funny. All of those quotes used to annoy me when I was in high school, when I was apparently too good for quotes. Now, thoughts I scoffed at make so much sense.

    Growing up can be so cool sometimes.

    “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain

    Thanks for the MyBlog add, Elysa! I’ve been collecting quotes for years. I post a Quote of the Week on Myspace as well as my Good Karma Network Weekly Update. My favorite quote is from Jonathan Winters: “I couldn’t find success so I went ahead without it”
