As opposed to my typical indecision and in stark contrast to my last venture as Fun Monday hostess, I knew what I wanted to offer as a theme for next week’s posting:
Quotable quotes and words that inspire.
Perhaps it’s due to the current series simmering in the ol’ PENSIEVE…maybe it’s because I’m inspired by the words of those much wiser than me…or I wonder if it’s because I believe in the POWER of words (in keeping with my "image-bearer of God status", who also must believe in the power of words since He SPOKE the world into existence and inspired men to record His thoughts…).
Regardless of what motivated me to choose this for a theme, next week please share words that inspire and motivate you–brief or bloviatory, silly or serious, from great world leaders to last night’s Comedy Central…from a Hallmark greeting card to your favorite book. Choose one, choose many; let the quotes stand on their own or tell where you first read or heard them and how they affected you. There’s a lot of leeway with how this topic can be handled.
Never participated in a Fun Monday carnival before? You’re invited to join in this week (be sure to let me know you’re a first-timer and I’ll make note in the listing).

It’s very fortunate that I didn’t go with my first idea this week and produce an A-Z of my favourite quotes!
p.s. why does Swampy call you trashy? just curious.
Glad y’all are all “in”. 🙂
Mariposa, why stop at one? or ten? Ok…if you get to 20, people might not actually READ your post….;)
Carrie, I wonder how many people see that and wonder but don’t ask…or even worse, think horrible thoughts! If you have time, read THIS POST and make sure to follow the first few links–it’ll explain everything in detail :).
