Quotes I like

I used to post quotes that I enjoyed, but I haven't done that in a while.  Why not start now?  Lately I have been posting quotes that I really like on my Facebook, so I figured I'd start putting them here as well.

"It's not who you are that holds you back, it's who you think you're not." ~Author Unknown
 "A smile confuses an approaching frown." ~Unknown

“We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.” ~ Frederick Keonig

"The Constitution only guarantees the American people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself." ~Benjamin Franklin (As my cousin pointed out, this quote has several things wrong with it, but the message is great.)

"Friendship doubles our joy and divides our grief."-- Swedish proverb

"...according to him I'm beautiful, incredible. He can't get me out of his head. According to him I'm funny,irresistible. Everything he ever wanted." ~Orianthi (song lyrics)
