10 Jimmy Carter Quotes to Celebrate a Birthday

10 Jimmy Carter Quotes to Celebrate a Birthday and Remember a Wiser Era

Author:Noel Jameson

The first of October will mark Jimmy Carter's 84th birthday and it's time to honor him with some Jimmy Carter quotes. Let these quotes not only kick off Jimmy's birthday celebration, but let them also remind us of a time when the people seemed to be a bit wiser and the world hadn't gone so astray. Whether you're a republican or a democrat, these ten quotes will have you admitting that Jimmy has been right about more than a few things.

[caption id="attachment_423" align="aligncenter" width="483"]10 Jimmy Carter Quotes to Celebrate a Birthday 10 Jimmy Carter Quotes to Celebrate a Birthday[/caption]

1. 'War may sometimes be a necessary evil. But no matter how necessary, it is always an evil, never a good. We will not learn how to live together in peace by killing each other's children.'

2. 'America did not invent human rights. In a very real sense, it is the other way round. Human rights invented America.'

3. 'The awareness that health is dependent upon habits that we control makes us the first generation in history that to a large extent determines its own destiny.'

4. 'Because we are now running out of gas and oil, we must prepare quickly for a third change, to strict conservation and to the use of coal and permanent renewable energy sources, like solar power.'

5. 'I say to you quite frankly that the time for racial discrimination is over.'

6. 'It is difficult for the common good to prevail against the intense concentration of those who have a special interest, especially if the decisions are made behind locked doors.'

7. 'The best way to enhance freedom in other lands is to demonstrate here that our democratic system is worthy of emulation.'

8. 'We become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams.'

9. 'Our American values are not luxuries but necessities, not the salt in our bread, but the bread itself. Our common vision of a free and just society is our greatest source of cohesion at home and strength abroad, greater than the bounty of our material blessings.'

10. 'I have one life and one chance to make it count for something . . . I'm free to choose what that something is, and the something I've chosen is my faith. Now, my faith goes beyond theology and religion and requires considerable work and effort. My faith demands -- this is not optional -- my faith demands that I do whatever I can, wherever I am, whenever I can, for as long as I can with whatever I have to try to make a difference.'

If there's one thing we can agree on, it's that the views of politicians (and their views of what their job entails) have definitely changed over the years. Whether you were a supporter of President Carter or not, you must admit that he had some good ideas and wise insights. These Jimmy Carter quotes are just a small demonstration of that fact.

3. "Being touched and caressed, being massaged, is food for the infant; food as necessary as minerals, vitamins, and proteins. Deprived of this food, the name of which is love, Babies would rather die. And often they do." - Frederick Leboyer

4. "I always wondered why babies spend so much time sucking their thumbs. Then I tasted "baby food." - Robert Orben

5. "Did you ever notice that a new baby always seem to bear a striking resemblance to the relative who has the most money?" - Robert Paul

9. "Getting down on all fours and imitating a rhinoceros stops babies from crying. (Put an empty cigarette pack on your nose for a horn and make loud "snort" noises.) I don't know why parents don't do this more often. Usually it makes the kid laugh. Sometimes it sends him into shock. Either way it quiets him down. If you're a parent, acting like a rhino has another advantage. Keep it up until the kid is a teenager and he definitely won't have his friends hanging around your house all the time." - P.J. O'Rourke

13. "Babies are necessary to grown-ups. A new baby is like the beginning of all things - wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities. In a world that is cutting down its trees to build highways, losing its earth to concrete... babies are almost the only remaining link with nature, with the natural world of living things from which we spring." - Eda J. Le Shan

14. "A woman has two smiles that an angel might envy - the smile that accepts a lover before words are uttered, and the smile that lights on the first born babe, and assures it of a mother's love." - Thomas C. Haliburton

8. Some folks called me a dreamer, other folks left and called me a fool. All I ever wanted to be was a winner, because I know a winner can never lose.'

9. 'Have I told you lately that I love you?'

10. 'And the ball goes up like the moon so bright, the boy swings his bat with all his might. and the world's so still as still can be, and the baseball falls, and that's strike three. Now it's supper time and his mama calls, little boy starts home with his bat and ball, says I am the greatest that is a fact, but even I didn't know I could pitch like that.'

11. 'You gotta know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, know when to walk away, know when to run.'

and how about this version: 'Know when to hold 'um, know when to fold 'um and know when to walk away from cameramen.'

While some of the words Kenny has spoken throughout his life have definitely held meaning, his songs hold a lot of depth too. As his August birthday quickly approaches, let's remember the man who told us it's okay to fold em, let us know we sometimes need to fight and taught us a bit about being optimistic with these eleven Kenny Rogers quotes.

12 Madonna Quotes to Celebrate the Birth of a Music Icon

12 Madonna Quotes to Celebrate the Birth of a Music Icon

Author:Noel Jameson

Ready for some Madonna quotes? And, no, I don't mean the the religious one. I'm talking about Madonna Louise Ciccone, the one and only music icon who changed the face of fashion and music forever. If you grew up in the 80s, you've seen her go from rebellious to downright controversial and back to popular beyond belief. It's only fitting that we celebrate her August 16th birthday with some fun and flirty quotes from none other than the music queen herself.

[caption id="attachment_365" align="aligncenter" width="400"]12 Madonna Quotes to Celebrate the Birth of a Music Icon 12 Madonna Quotes to Celebrate the Birth of a Music Icon[/caption]

1. 'A lot of people are afraid to say what they want. That's why they don't get what they want.'

2. 'When I'm hungry, I eat. When I'm thirsty, I drink. When I feel like saying something, I say it.'

3. 'I am my own experiment. I am my own work of art.'

4. 'Better to live one year as a tiger, than a hundred as a sheep.'

5. 'I always thought I should be treated like a star.'

6. 'My father was very strong. I don't agree with a lot of the ways he brought me up. I don't agree with a lot of his values, but he did have a lot of integrity, and if he told us not to do something, he didn't do it either.'

7. 'To be brave is to love someone unconditionally, without expecting anything in return. To just give. That takes courage, because we don't want to fall on our faces or leave ourselves open to hurt.'

8. 'I wouldn't have turned out the way I was if I didn't have all those old-fashioned values to rebel against.'

9. 'I've always wanted to be taller. I feel like a shrimp, but that's the way it goes. I'm five-foot four-and-a-half-inches - that's actually average. Everything about me is average. Everything's normal, in the books. It's the things inside me that make me not average.'

10. 'Being blonde is definitely a different state of mind. I can't really put my finger on it, but the artifice of being blonde has some incredible sort of sexual connotation. Men really respond to it. I love blonde hair but it really does something different to you. I feel more grounded when I have dark hair, and I feel more ethereal when I have light hair. It's unexplainable. I also feel more Italian when my hair is dark.'

11. 'My having a child is not for public consumption. It's not a career move. It's not a performance to be judged or rated. Nor is my role as a mother.'

12. 'I think the ultimate challenge is to have some kind of style and grace, even though you haven't got money, or standing in society, or formal education. I had a very middle, lower-middle class sort of upbringing, but I identify with people who've had, at some point in their lives to struggle to survive. It adds another color to your character.'

How could the critics have ever hated her? Sure, she's done some pretty 'out there' things, but when push comes to shove it seems she's a pretty deep person who has her head on straight. Let's join the birthday celebration. The above 12 Madonna quotes are a great way to start.

10 Julia Child Quotes

10 Julia Child Quotes to Celebrate American Class

Author:Noel Jameson

We'll be celebrating Julia Child's birthday on August 15th and I thought it would be the perfect time to dig up some great Julia Child quotes. After all, not many female celebrities can compare to the class and culture this woman exhibited -- even if she didn't manage to match them in beauty.

Of course, Julia is most well known for teaching us the finer things in culinary life. From eating right (and that did not, in her book, mean dieting) to enjoying your life to the fullest, Julia had quite a few tidbits of sound advice to offer. Let's remember her on the anniversary of her birth with these ten insightful quotes.

[caption id="attachment_360" align="aligncenter" width="500"]10 Julia Child Quotes to Celebrate American Class 10 Julia Child Quotes to Celebrate American Class[/caption]

1. 'The only time to eat diet food is while you're waiting for the steak to cook.'

2. 'I think the inner person is the most important. . . . I would like to see an invention that keeps the mind alert. That's what is important.'

3. 'Being tall is an advantage, especially in business. People will always remember you. And if you're in a crowd, you'll always have some clean air to breathe.'

4. 'In department stores, so much kitchen equipment is bought indiscriminately by people who just come in for men's underwear.'

5. 'Dining with one's friends and beloved family is certainly one of life's primal and most innocent delights, one that is both soul-satisfying and eternal.'

6. 'Non-cooks think it's silly to invest two hours' work in two minutes' enjoyment; but if cooking is evanescent, so is the ballet.'

7. 'The only real stumbling block is fear of failure. In cooking you've got to have a 'What the hell?' attitude.'

8. 'You don't have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces - just good food from fresh ingredients.'

9. 'In spite of food fads, fitness programs, and health concerns, we must never lose sight of a beautifully conceived meal.'

10. 'Life itself is the proper binge.'

For those of you who would like to believe that living long doesn't mean avoiding all of life's most delicious foods, Julia Child could be your hero. She lived to be more than 90 years old, and we all know she ate foods with fats and butters and creams (and she drank gin to boot!). Take that you Atkins fanatics! Take that you low-fat, low-calorie diet freaks! If you didn't love her before, these ten Julia Child quotes might just change your mind.

Inspiration in the Form of 10 Helen Keller Quotes

Inspiration in the Form of 10 Helen Keller Quotes

Author: Noel Jameson

Helen Keller's June 27th birthday is right around the corner and I thought it would be fitting to honor her with a few of her famous Helen Keller quotes. After all, the world can really learn something from Helen's determination, compassion and ability to grow. Here are ten quotes to commemorate the day of her birth.
Helen Keller Quotes
Helen Keller Quotes

1. 'Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.'

2. 'Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn whatever state I am in, therein to be content.'

3. 'Science may have found a cure for most evils; but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings.'

4. 'When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.'

5. 'There is no king who has not had a slave among his ancestors, and no slave who has not had a king among his.'

6. 'Self-pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it, we can never do anything good in the world.'

7. 'Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.'

8. 'Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Security does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than exposure.'

9. 'I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.'

10. 'Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But there's a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see.'

I wonder how different Helen's life would have been if she hadn't had such spirit. Where would she have been without the fire and drive that impressed everyone who met her? Helen is proof of the fact that we can look inside ourselves to make change in the world around us. Let these ten Helen Keller quotes remind us of that.

10 Wilma Rudolph Quotes to Commemorate Her June Birthday

10 Wilma Rudolph Quotes to Commemorate Her June Birthday

Author:Noel Jameson

If you want sports quotes that aren't just about athletics, but are about overcoming adversity and overwhelming odds, then Wilma Rudolph quotes are just what the doctor ordered. As we prepare to commemorate her birthday this June, let's reflect on how special she was, what she taught us and the legacy she left us...

10 Wilma Rudolph Quotes to Commemorate Her June Birthday
10 Wilma Rudolph Quotes to Commemorate Her June Birthday

1. 'Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion. The potential for greatness lives within each of us.'

2. 'The triumph can't be had without the struggle. And I know what struggle is. I have spent a lifetime trying to share what it has meant to be a woman first in the world of sports so that other young women have a chance to reach their dreams.'

3. 'My doctors told me I would never walk again. My mother told me I would. I believed my mother.'

4. 'When I was going through my transition of being famous, I tried to ask God why was I here? What was my purpose? Surely, it wasn't just to win three gold medals. There has to be more to this life than that.'

5. 'My mother taught me very early to believe I could achieve any accomplishment I wanted to. The first was to walk without braces.'

6. 'I had a series of childhood illnesses; scarlet fever, pneumonia, polio. I walked with braces until I was at least nine years old. My life wasn't like the average person who grew up and decided to enter the world of sports.'

7. 'What do you do after you are world famous and nineteen or twenty and you have sat with prime ministers, kings and queens, the Pope? Do you go back home and take a job? What do you do to keep your sanity? You come back to the real world.'

8. 'It doesn't matter what you're trying to accomplish. It's all a matter of discipline. I was determined to discover what life held for me beyond the inner-city streets.'

9. 'No matter what accomplishments you make, somebody helps you.'

10. 'Nobody goes undefeated all the time. If you can pick up after a crushing defeat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion someday.'

For someone who was never supposed to walk again, winning three Olympic gold medals was quite the accomplishment. More impressive, though, was the person Wilma Rudolph continued to be through all the fame and all the attention.

She was a woman of character, taken too soon from this world by the ugly disease of cancer. Her legacy lives on, however. These ten Wilma Rudolph quotes are just a part of it.

14 Judy Garland Quotes to Celebrate the Birthday of Oz's Star

14 Judy Garland Quotes to Celebrate the Birthday of Oz's Star

Author:Noel Jameson

Ready for a few Judy Garland quotes to remember her by on the anniversary of her birth? They might not be what you're expecting. While many of us remember Judy as the happy-go-lucky Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, there was much more to her than just that.

Judy Garland Quotes to Celebrate the Birthday
Judy Garland Quotes to Celebrate the Birthday

For instance, she was the mother of world-famous Liza Minelli! Not many people know that one. She was also very under-appreciated and conflicted during her lifetime. If you want to get to know the real Judy, these fourteen quotes are a good place to start.

1. 'Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.'

2. 'How strange when an illusion dies. It's as though you've lost a child.'

3. 'If I'm such a legend, then why am I so lonely? Let me tell you, legends are all very well if you've got somebody around who loves you.'

4. 'We cast away priceless time in dreams, born of imagination, fed upon illusion, and put to death by reality.'

5. 'I was born at the age of twelve on an MGM lot.'

6. 'My life, my career has been like a roller coaster. I've either been an enormous success or just a down-and-out failure.'

7. 'Behind every cloud is another cloud.'

8. 'I can live without money, but I cannot live without love.'

9. 'In the silence of night I have often wished for just a few words of love from one man, rather than the applause of thousands of people.'

10. 'I'm the original take-orders girl.'

11. 'It's lonely and cold on the top... lonely and cold.'

12. 'I've always taken 'The Wizard of Oz' very seriously, you know. I believe in the idea of the rainbow. And I've spent my entire life trying to get over it.'

13. 'For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.'

14. 'I've never looked through a keyhole without finding someone was looking back.'

When the world lost Judy Garland, we lost someone special. She didn't just sing about 'over the rainbow', she really believed in it. Perhaps she finally made her way there. After all, it's been rumored that a tornado hit Kansas on the day of Judy's death. On the anniversary of her birthday, let's remember her for the amazing person she was and the legacy she left behind with these fourteen Judy Garland quotes.

7. 'We are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.'

8. 'Our progress as a nation can be no swifter than our progress in education. The human mind is our fundamental resource.'

9. 'The farmer is the only man in our economy who buys everything at retail, sells everything at wholesale, and pays the freight both ways.'

12 Dr. Spock Quotes to Celebrate His May Birthday

12 Dr. Spock Quotes to Celebrate His May Birthday

Author:Noel Jameson

If you have a child or are interested in childcare, you know who Dr. Spock is and you probably have at least a few Dr. Spock quotes committed to memory. As we remember the anniversary of his birthday this May, let's reflect on the words that made Dr. Spock such a remarkable individual and worldwide authority on children and their needs.

[caption id="attachment_563" align="aligncenter" width="427"]Dr. Spock Quotes to Celebrate His May Birthday www.QuotesoftheLife.com-0099 Dr. Spock Quotes to Celebrate Birthday[/caption]

1. 'I've come to the realization that a lot of our problems are because of a dearth of spiritual values.'

2. 'There are only two things a child will share willingly -- communicable diseases and his mother's age.'

3. 'Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.'

4. 'Every child senses, with all the horse sense that's in him, that any parent is angry inside when children misbehave and they dread more the anger that is rarely or never expressed openly, wondering how awful it might be.'

5. 'All the time a person is a child he is both a child and learning to be a parent. After he becomes a parent he becomes predominantly a parent reliving childhood.'

6. 'Perhaps a child who is fussed over gets a feeling of destiny; he thinks he is the world for something important, and it gives him drive and confidence.'

7. 'Happiness is mostly a by-product of doing what makes us feel fulfilled.'

8. 'In automobile terms, the child supplies the power but the parents have to do the steering.'

9. 'In our country today, very few children are raised to believe that their principal destiny is to serve their family, their country, or God.'

10. 'The fact is that child rearing is a long, hard job, the rewards are not always immediately obvious, the work is undervalued, and parents are just as human and almost as vulnerable as their children.'

11. 'I would say that the surest measure of a man's or a woman's maturity is the harmony, style, joy, and dignity he creates in his marriage, and the pleasure and inspiration he provides for his spouse.'

12. 'What good mothers and fathers instinctively feel like doing for their babies is usually best after all.'

Some of his advice was controversial. There's no question that the man has been in and out of favor as often as the world's fads and views change. What it all comes down to is the truth of the matter, and that is this -- Dr. Spock had some wonderful insight to offer and these twelve Dr. Spock quotes are testimony to that fact.

Author: Noel Jameson

Easter will be here before you know it, making now the perfect time for some delightful Easter quotes. After all, miracles may happen every day but this miracle -- the miracle of Christ rising from the cross to free all mankind from our sins -- is one that we must never forget. With that in mind, let's reflect on just how wondrous this gift was with these 12 lovely Easter quotes.

[caption id="attachment_481" align="aligncenter" width="400"]www.QuotesoftheLife.com-0087 12 Easter Quotes to Celebrate a Miracle That Changed the World[/caption]

1. 'The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances.' ~ Robert Flatt

2. 'Let every man and woman count himself immortal. Let him catch the revelation of Jesus in his resurrection. Let him say not merely, 'Christ is risen,' but 'I shall rise.' ~ Phillips Brooks

3. 'Christianity begins where religion ends...with the resurrection.' ~ Herbert Booth Smith

4. 'Easter says you can put truth in a grave, but it won't stay there.' ~ Clarence W. Hall

5. 'It was inevitable that Jesus Christ should be crucified. It was also inevitable that He should rise again.' ~ H. R. L. Sheppard

6. 'The great gift of Easter is hope - Christian hope which makes us have that confidence in God, in his ultimate triumph, and in his goodness and love, which nothing can shake.' ~ Basil C. Hume

7. 'The story of Easter is the story of God's wonderful window of divine surprise.' ~ Carl Knudsen

8. 'On Easter Day the veil between time and eternity thins to gossamer.' ~ Douglas Horton

9. 'And he departed from our sight that we might return to our heart, and there find Him. For He departed, and behold, He is here.' ~ St. Augustine

10. 'Let the resurrection joy lift us from loneliness and weakness and despair to strength and beauty and happiness.' ~ Floyd W. Tomkins

11. 'The joyful news that He is risen does not change the contemporary world. Still before us lie work, discipline, sacrifice. But the fact of Easter gives us the spiritual power to do the work, accept the discipline, and make the sacrifice.' ~ Henry Knox Sherrill

12. 'In every grave on earth's green sward is a tiny seed of the resurrection life of Jesus Christ, and that seed cannot perish. It will germinate when the warm south wind of Christ's return brings back the spring-tide to this cold sin-cursed earth of ours; and then they that are in their graves, and we who shall lie down in ours, will feel in our mortal bodies the power of His resurrection, and will come forth to life immortal.' ~ David Gregg

So as spring comes and the grass and flowers come back to life, let it remind us of the miracle of the true Resurrection. And while the bunny and the eggs may all be fun, let these 12 Easter quotes remind us of the true reason for this holiday.

By Danielle Hollister

Examine your own personal goals and find methods to achieve your desires with these valuable quotations about setting goals...

  1. "The most important thing about having goals is having one."
    -- Geoffrey F. Abert

  2. "It takes a little courage, and a little self-control. And some grim determination, If you want to reach the goal. It takes a deal of striving, and a firm and stern-set chin. No matter what the battle, If you really want to win. There's no easy path to glory, There's no road to fame. Life, however we may view it, Is no simple parlor game; But it's prizes call for fighting, For endurance and for grit; For a rugged disposition and don't know when to quit."
    -- Anonymous

    -- Bette Davis

  4. "A goal is a dream that has an ending. "
    -- Duke Ellington

  5. "The timid and fearful first failures dismay, but the stout heart stays trying by night and by day. He values his failures as lessons that teach The one way to get to the goal he would reach."
    -- Edgar A. Guest

  6. "Know what you want to do, hold the thought firmly, and do every day what should be done, and every sunset will see you that much nearer to your goal."
    -- Elbert Hubbard

  7. "Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude."
    -- Thomas Jefferson

  8. "It is for us to pray not for tasks equal to our powers, but for powers equal to our tasks, to go forward with a great desire forever beating at the door of our hearts as we travel toward our distant goal."
    -- Helen Keller

  9. "A goal properly set is halfway reached."
    -- Abraham Lincoln

  10. "It must be borne in mind that the tragedy of life does not lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy of life lies in having no goal to reach."
    -- Benjamin E. Mays

  11. "Each of us has a fire in our hearts for something. It's our goal in life to find it and to keep it lit."
    -- Mary Lou Retton

  12. "Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal."
    -- Ralph Vaull Starr

  13. "We must walk consciously only part way toward our goal, and then leap in the dark to our success."
