Famous Quotes, Funny Quotes, and more Quotes!

I like to post project to inspire each and every one of you. I also post things that I need to remember or keep in one place. I needed a quote today, and I had to look in what seemed like 50 different places to find the one I wanted. So, for the next few days, I will post the different sentiments, quotes, and journaling prompts.

When I am scrapbooking or making a mini album, I like to use quotes as an embellishment for pages. Sometimes it serves as the journaling for a page. I like funny quotes, inspirational quotes, and even quotes by famous people.

Today I will be sharing with you some of these quotes and where I found them. I use these by printing the quote on cardstock then inking the edges and adding it to the page or by simply handwriting it on a journaling tag.

First, here are some quotes from a site that is no longer in service and more from other places I have gathered over time.

  • Anonymous: The secret of life is not to do what you like but to like what you do.
  • Kevin Costner: When a defining moment comes along, you define the moment, or the moment defines you.
  • Anonymous: Success is getting what you want; happiness is wanting what you get.
  • Mark Twain: It is better to deserve honors and not have them than to have them and not deserve them.
  • Sam Ewing: It's not the hours you put in your work that count, it's work you put in the hours.
  • Anonymous: Success is getting what you want; happiness is wanting what you get.
  • Anonymous: "Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts."

  • Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

These quotes are from Albert Einstein!

So mushy even Hallmark gagged…

  • Just knowing you are out there thinking about me, caring about me, makes me feel safe.
  • Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.
  • You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.

On this site, The Perfect Title, you will find a collection organized by topic and theme of titles and journaling prompts. They range from the simple Darling Daughters to the more complex statements, such as Mothers and Daughters grow closer when Daughters become Mothers.

And last, but most important, the best quotes of all time are from the Bible, There are thousands, but these are my favorites:
