Courage does not always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice
at the end of the day saying,
“I will try again tomorrow.”
Curse you Mary Anne Radmacher for coming up with words so memorable they are reproduced on a Quotable Magnet stuck on the side of my refrigerator. Yes, a Quotable Magnet from Quotable Cards keeps company on my refrigerator with an array of other magnets with quotes from Robert Frost, Carl Sandburg, J.R.R. Tolkien, Margaret Mead, Mae West and Davy Crockett. Plus, there’s a picture magnet of me and Teresa at Graceland. No words on that one – just musical notes in the background. Thank you, Elvis.
I love quotes. I collect quotes like some people collect stamps. I have a folder filled with hundreds of quotes I’ve saved through the years. Some of them are attributed to Anonymous sources, but most of them have the names of the people who wrote them or spoke them.
Would somebody please quote me? I don’t have to be immortalized on a refrigerator magnet or greeting card, but I wish I could write something quotable.
And for those of you who wondered what the Davy Crockett quote is, here goes:
You may all go to hell,
and I will go to Texas.
Good night, and good luck.
