100th Post!

Wow, I have finally made it to my one hundredth post!  Whoohoo!  Wahoo!  Okay, this makes it one hundred and one…… Dalmatians!  No, sorry, but I couldn’t resist adding the dog.

I seriously did not think I would get here, but having the Post  A Week challenge going on, It’s made it that much easier.  I think it fitting that my 100th post was about quotes and little bits of wisdom.  See the previous post entitled The Wisdom of a Cup of Good Earth Tea.

Quotes are a wonderful little thing to have on hand. Not to spout off at random moments, but to get you thinking.  I love quotes.  Especially ones that relate to me.  Now, the Pancho Villa one doesn’t, per say, but well I kind of like it just because.

I love quotes that are about writers, and bits of trivia that might not mean anything to anyone else, but sound cool to me.  The Good Earth teas definitely sound cool.

So, there you have it.  One hundred and one posts.  Yay!

The Wisdom of a Cup of Good Earth Tea

Tea Quote

I collect weird things.  Okay, not all of them are weird.  Lots of people collect rocks.  Bolts and nuts, not so much, but that’s another story.  One thing I love to collect is the teabag papers from Good Earth Teas.  Why?

The quotes. 

There is a quote on every paper.

And here are some random ones that I pulled out of the pile that I have.

Don’t let it end like this.  Tell them I said something. ~ Pancho Villa, last words (1877-1923)

For much wood a  little fire suffices. ~ Wise Saying from the Orient

A witty saying proves nothing. ~ Voltiare (1694-1778)

All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them. ~ Galileo Galilei (1564-1642)

Always bear in mind that your resolution to succeed is more important than any one thing. ~ Abraham Lincoln (1808-1865)

When God made time, He made enough of it. ~ Celtic Saying

Anything too stupid to be said is sung. ~ Voltaire (1694-1778)

God has two dwellings: one in heaven, and the other in a meek and thankful heart. ~ Izaak Walton (1593-1683)

It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one. ~ George Washington (1732-1799)

When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President.  Now I’m beginning to believe it. ~ Clarence Darrow (1857-1938)

In science the credit goes to the man who convinces the world, not the man to whom the idea first occurs. ~ Sire Francis Darwin (1848-1925)

Artists who seek perfection in everything are those who cannot attain it in anything. Eugene Delacroix (1798-1863)

Ignorance of certain subjects is a great part of wisdom. ~ Hugo De Groot (1583-1645)

Those are just a sampling of the ones I’ve collected over the past couple years.  I’m still not sure what I’m going to do with all the tags, but now my sister is indulging me and saving the tags from her teabags as well.  It’s fun to have that little bit of a quote in your head throughout the day.  A smidgen of awareness.
