Why is now the perfect time for Dr. Seuss quotes? Because silly! The birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel is right around the corner. But who is Theodor, you say? None other than Dr. Seuss himself! With the birthday of a legend upon us (and a Dr. Seuss movie about to be released) there's never been a better time to revisit our favorite Dr. Seuss sayings. Here are my Top 14.

12 Johnny Cash Quotes to Remember Him

12 Johnny Cash Quotes to Remember Him on His Birthday


Author:Noel Jameson


Once in a while a musician just doesn't have talent, he or she has depth and understanding that seems almost spiritual - and a few of the Johnny Cash quotes I've read suggest that the man was one of these rare souls. Wondering what I mean? These twelve quotes sum it up nicely...

[caption id="attachment_793" align="aligncenter" width="450"]12 Johnny Cash Quotes to Remember Him on His Birthday www.QuotesoftheLife.com-0037 12 Johnny Cash Quotes to Remember Him on His Birthday[/caption]

1. 'How well I have learned that there is no fence to sit on between heaven and hell. There is a deep, wide gulf, a chasm, and in that chasm is no place for any man.'

2. 'You've got to know your limitations. I don't know what your limitations are. I found out what mine were when I was twelve. I found out that there weren't too many limitations, if I did it my way.'

3. 'Sometimes I am two people. Johnny is the nice one. Cash causes all the trouble. They fight.'

4. 'What have I become, my sweetest friend. Everyone I know goes away, in the end.'

5. 'Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.'

6. 'I've probably had the equivalent of college in the roads I've traveled since then, but it would have been great to go from high school right into college to study music and literature.'

7. 'Creative people have to be fed from the divine source. I have to get fed. I had to get filled up in order to pour out.'

8. 'When God forgave me, I figured I'd better do it too.'

9. 'Children, all your life, you will be faced with a choice. You can choose love or hate... I choose love.'

10. 'It makes me so mad that some people underestimate the wisdom and energy of young people. All because they don't look the way older folks think they should look. I'm working on a song about it. Maybe some of those closed minded people will realize long hair and tattoos don't mean they should be ignored. Close minded people are part of what's wrong with this world.'

11. 'You miss a lot of opportunities by making mistakes, but that's part of it: knowing that you're not shut out forever, and that there's a goal you still can reach.'

12. 'I'd like to wear a rainbow every day, and tell the world that everything is o.k. But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back. Until things are brighter, I'm the Man in Black.'

Some famous musicians are shallow, some care more about the money than they do about the art. Johnny Cash was not one of them. He was a man with a message and these twelve Johnny Cash quotes give us a bit of insight into the man behind the hypnotic voice.

Valentine's Day has always been associated with romance. It has been in existence for so many centuries, with its roots in the Ancient Roman Civilization. There is always an excited buzz in the atmosphere with the onset of February. People of all age and class look forward to this special day. It is the best time to send across messages which depict their feelings and emotions for their loved ones.

Valentine's Day messages are often filled with promises of undying passion and an ever-lasting love. Earlier this communication was done through love letters which were written in a flowery language on an appropriate letter pad. The lovers enjoyed reading and treasuring these letters for future. Then times changed and Valentine's Day cards were introduced in the market. These were attractively made of fine paper, designed for the occasion with proper message written in it. Some of these cards used to be really extravagant and impressed the recipient no end.

As technology changed, so did the art of sending Valentine's Day message. In the present times, you don't need to have a pen and paper necessarily. One can really send across a message through the use of electronic media. There are so many websites which provide facilities to convey your messages to the near and dear ones. You can also send e-mails to the other person and express your feelings.

Valentine's messages have been around for many, many years with roots of the day found back as far as Ancient Rome. They are often filled with professions of undying passion, proposals of blessed unions, or a reminiscent of long lasting love. These Valentine's messages were once sent as flowing letters on proper stationary or poems written inside red and white, and often extravagant cards. Now, we are no longer constrained only to pen and paper but can branch out into various ways of getting our Valentine's messages to our most beloved.

There are some messages which are timeless and can always be used to convey your feelings to your near and dear ones. Many of these have been quoted often and yet they retain their charm still. Some such messages are given below which can be used for expressing your love and affection to your dear ones:

"Love is not love that alters when it alteration finds."
-Shakespeare

'Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden' -- Oscar Wilde


 

February 14th and Saint Valentine's Day is around the corner. On this day we celebrate love and affection. Valentines Day is the most romantic day of the year for most people. It is also a very popular day for couples to be married.

I have found some Valentine's Day quotes that I want to share with you as I love quotes about love and happiness. And I also want to share with you some ideas on how to make this day a special day that your partner will never forget.

[caption id="attachment_472" align="aligncenter" width="450"]Valentine's Day Ideas And Quotes About Love www.QuotesoftheLife.com-0084 Valentine's Day Ideas And Quotes About Love[/caption]

Personally I think we should make every day special for our love. If you have very strong, specific desires for your Valentine's celebration, tell him/her to avoid misunderstandings and disappointment.

 

A few quotes about love and happiness.

'Multiply it by infinity, take it to the depths of forever and you'll still only have a glimpse of how much I love you.' -- Source Unknown


'I don't fear insects or spiders. At great heights, I jump off, smiling. In the face of death I wink. But, when I look into your eyes, I'm in fear of how much I love you.' -- Source Unknown

'Why do I love you? Because you are and always have been my dream.' -- Source Unknown 'Even though were far apart I love you dearly with all my heart.' -- Source Unknown

Here are some ideas on how to make this day special for the one you love:

  1. Make A thoughtful personalized Valentine's card.

'I don't fear insects or spiders. At great heights, I jump off, smiling. In the face of death I wink. But, when I look into your eyes, I'm in fear of how much I love you.' -- Source Unknown

'It takes a second to say I love you, but a lifetime to show it.' -- Source Unknown

Single on Valentine's day!

Sorry! I forgot something, many of us are single. What can we do on a day that is supposed to celebrate love?

Be a friend – use the day to visit a friend who lives alone and you know is lonely. Many elderly people are seldom outside and meet others. They will welcome you with open arms. Buy or bake a cake and make it a nice time to remember for both of you. Be a good listener, what they need is someone there to listen to them. Time is a precious gift. To spend your time with someone is the same as giving a small gift to both of you.

If you are not in mood to visit someone, why not use the day as an excuse to pamper and treat yourself. Take a bubble bath, a trip to the massage therapist, or a night curled up with a book (love-story) or movie.

And then we have our dreams, we can make the most wonderful dreams in our head. Then we can plan how to make them come true. You can make dreams come true if you want to.

And we can prepare our self by reading and learning as much as possible about how to be a good partner, how to understand the other sex and work on being a better and more understanding person. Find books about love and relationships here:

Here are a few more quotes about love and happiness!

'If enduring pain, braving shame, despising one's self for the sake of affection and accepting misery without question is the definition of love - then, I LOVE YOU.' -- Marvin Jay M. Torres

'Go ahead and say it: I love you. You can say it a thousand times. But, true love doesn't need to be told.' -- Source Unknown

'If I love you this much, and I'm not the one for you, then the one for you will be everything I am; and everything I'm not.' -- Source Unknown

'If you have to say you love me, it's because I need to know. If you want to say you love me, it's because you want me to know. But, saying that you love me is simply because you do. I love you, too!' -- Source Unknown

Be yorself and be happy, never stop dreaming!

I wish you all a wonderful Valentine's day!

And remember to make every day special for the one you love.
