Inspiring Pinterest Pins


From 42 Moving Pinterest Pins for Language Lovers:

Because I love great quotes, I’ve been asked to bring this excellent post to your attention, which I’m glad to do as it includes some of my favorite authors!  Pinterest is a wealth of information, also inspiration.

First up, my all time favorite Author C.S. Lewis: “I have learned now that while those who speak about ones miseries usually hurt, those who keep silence hurt more.”

Wow.  How wise and moving is that?

And from humorist Will Rogers: “Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”

Keep on going and growing!

From Margaret Atwood:

“i believe that everyone else my age is an adult while i am just in disguise.”

Me too. 🙂

On Happiness:  “I think we like to complicate things when really it is quite simple; find what it is that makes you happy and who it is that makes you happy and you are set. Promise.”

Eons ago, I paid a therapist to tell me this.  It’s how I came to be a writer.  And I do hang out with people who make me happy, except when they drive me nuts.

And from  2 Corinthians 12: 10  “For when I am weak then I am strong.”  Ultimate wisdom can certainly be found in the Bible.

From beloved Author Jane Austen: “It isn’t what we say or think that defines us but what we do.” (From Sense and Sensibility)

From the sharp-witted mind of Mark Twain: “Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”

And I can’t resist adding this from Twain: “Better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.”

About Magic from Roald Dahl: “Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”

Here’s some Motivation for you by an unknown contributor: “Stop saying ‘I wish’ and start saying ‘I will.’

“To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong.” ~ Joseph Chilton Pearce

Man does he have that right!

A Perfect Day from one of my favorite English poets John Keats: “Give me books, fruit, French wine and fine weather and a little music out of doors played by someone I do not know.”

On being Bonkers from Lewis Carol:

The Mad Hatter: “Have I gone mad?”

Alice: “I’m afraid so, you’re entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret.  All the best people are.”

To dreams:  “Why stop dreaming when you wake up?”

Here’s a good one for a worrier like me: “Stop thinking of what could go wrong and start thinking of what could go right.”

And a super quote from the ever optimistic Walt Disney, whom I remember watching on Sunday evenings when I was a child.  He introduced the Wonderful World of Disney television show and enchanted us all.  I loved him and his legacy lives on.

“Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious…and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”  ―Walt Disney

  3. Oh, I’m going to follow you on Pinterest now. What great quotes. One of my favorites is from author, Stewart Chase. “For those who believe, no proof is needed. For those who don’t believe, no proof is possible.” Is that not the best way ever to say, “people will think what they want anyway?”
