Animals Quote of the Day

Welcome to these Animals Quotes of the Day from my large collection of positive, romantic, and funny quotes.

they are liable to spring upon you;
but if you look them squarely in the eye,
they will slink out of sight.
- Orison Swett Marden

Before you can celebrate your life, you must Honor it.
And, before you can feel unity with,
and Honor toward, Spirit and all creation,
you must Honor yourself to feel worthy of that unity.

Do real life people actually fall in love
with the idea of being in love?

They choose the colors for the nursery.
They design all the aspects of their married life.
A real person stands no chance of measuring up to those fantasies.
