Oh yes, Miss Austen. She's too wonderful. (Although, I find that I quote a lot of random things too...)

And speaking of God's quotable-ness... March's Today in the Word (www.todayintheword.com) has had lots of humorous things that are VERY worthy of quoting!

Jane Austen is definitely one of the most frequently quoted in our house. Also, P.G. Wodehouse.

I love the quote you chose!

Amanda C. said...

I do love me some Jane Austen, but I also enjoy quoting a little Donald Miller or CS Lewis every now and then :)

Karen said...

Grace (Eventually) author Anne Lamott writes:
"Most of us don’t notice how great we look until years, even decades later...Why did it take me so long to discover what a dish I was?" Absolutely!! To think I worried about cellulite when I was 18...wasted time!!

LOVE your blog. I have coffee "with" you every day. I kind of collect quotes. There are so many great authors - Jane Austen really does make my heart skip a beat. That darn Mr. Darcy. My favorite quote though is from Albert Einstein - "Imagination is more important that knowledge". So true, and how often we forget.

"There are so many things to think about when reading this- how life is and the things we think matter the most are the things we should focus on the least. Life is short and beautiful to worry about things that cause us worry. We should take initiative to focus on the things that influence us in a positive way, to lead a fruitful, peaceful life."

This is from Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas, by James Patterson, not a suspense book, wonderful "girly" book, a MUST read, I cry every time and I have read it a TON!

I love Maya Angelou! I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings is one of the best books I read growing up.
