From the time I was able to put pencil to paper, I’ve been a list-maker; in fact, I’ve been known to make lists of lists I need to create! As a result, I’m excited to participate this year in Moorea Seal’s 52 Lists Project; look for my list every Monday.  Two weeks of the flu put me behind, so this week I’ll be sharing 3 lists. 

List 8: List Your Favorite Quotes

1. Some people search for happiness; others create it.  ??

2. If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.  Henry David Thoreau
