Quotable Sunday!

Time for Toni's Quoteable Sundays! I love this and participate every week. If you want to participate then do your own, head to Toni's site and sign her Mr. Linky and visit as many others as you can!

Sorry mine are a little on the down side... Ive been feeling a bit down and having a hard time with our problems lately. So Adversity quotes for me this week. I promise I will perk up soon!

"Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional." ~M. Kathleen Casey

"If you're going through hell, keep going." ~Winston Churchill

"The healthy and strong individual is the one who asks for help when he needs it. Whether he's got an abscess on his knee or in his soul." ~Rona Barrett

"When it is dark enough, you can see the stars." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

"The difficulties of life are intended to make us better, not bitter." ~Author Unknown

"Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light." ~ Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (movie)

"Adversity is like a strong wind. It tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that we see ourselves as we really are." ~Arthur Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha

"Problems are only opportunities with thorns on them." ~Hugh Miller, Snow on the Wind

I need to remember this:

"Prosperity is not without many fears and distastes, and adversity is not without comforts and hopes." ~Francis Bacon

Keep your chin up - things always get better. I especially like Winston Churchill's quote.

I should clarify, things are not terrible, we are all well, healthy... but sometimes the things that we deal with (money esp) just get us down for a bit. I am feeling better since I posted this. I just wanted to wallow a little!

Hope things get better soon, Mimi! Great quotes - these two are my favorites:

"If you're going through hell, keep going." ~Winston Churchill

"Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light." ~ Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (movie)

Have a great Sunday! :)

I love the Ralph Waldo Emerson quote. But then again I've always liked him. My daughter is named Emerson.

You're right, sometimes posting brings the spirits up just a little bit.

A little wallow is often helpful isn't it!
I like this one : "If you're going through hell, keep going." ~Winston Churchill

Excellent quotes! I do so love this one, "Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light." ~ Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (movie).

Things will improve.
