"All You Need is Love. Love is all You Need."

The Beatles
(and happy belated Valentines day by the way, thanks Mom for my Valentine's day header)

There is a "Story Person" sculpture by Brian Andreas that hangs in my office. It says, "I've always liked the time before dawn because there's no one around to remind who I'm supposed to be so it's easier to remember who I am."
I love that quote. I took this picture out the window of my own little office very early Friday morning. It reminded me of the meaning of that saying.

For me, that's so true too. Early in the morning before the day has started before anyone without a coat of fur and a wet snout needs anything from me is when I can really breathe. I love sitting at my desk drinking coffee taking a mental inventory of my day, going through e mail and just chillin'. It is one of those, "little things," that makes me bizarrely happy.

"People destined to meet will do so apparently by chance, at precisely the right moment." Emerson's Law of Spiritual Gravitation.

Health is not a commodity to be bargained for. It has to be earned through sweat. -B.K.S. Iyebgar

"Your outlook on life is a direct reflection of how much you like yourself."- Taken right off the Lulumon poster. :)

I could quote for days.
What are your favorites?

Unfortunately I am still too ghetto to come up with a half decent quote, since my all time favorite is still "You can't be a pimp and a prostitute too" BUT if I want to be more intellectual and appropriate it would be this

"Love is passion, obsession, someone you can't live without. If you don't start with that, what are you going to end up with? Fall head over heels. I say find someone you can love like crazy and who'll love you the same way back. And how do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart. I'm not hearing any heart. Run the risk, if you get hurt, you'll come back. Because, the truth is there is no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love - well, you haven't lived a life at all. You have to try. Because if you haven't tried, you haven't lived. "

I love that you too love that time of day. My favorite.

Quotes? The one sthat most apply to me right now? "It's hard to say without really knowing." and "Oy with the poodles already." They both seem to fit just about any occasion/

I have many, but here's a good one... Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle,and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Love never decreases by being shared.

Or... Happiness does not come from having much, but from being attached to little

Or... An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind.

I've only had one cup of coffee this morning...can't think of anything to quote except a gem from Spike, on Buffy the Vampire Slayer: "Is everyone here very stoned?"

I say that a lot. Every day. :)
