reclaiming joy and courage

um...these quotes were very liked by me. I have said this before, but I just feel like if I could somehow have all my favorite life changing quotes blown up and hung up all over the house, I think I would remember better how to handle life more peacefully and calmly.

"Morality is the judgement to distinguish right and wrong, vision to see the truth, courage to act upon it, dedication to that which is good, integrity to stand by the good at any price." Ayn Rand

"Joy is the goal of existence, and joy is not to be stumbled upon, but to be achieved, and the act of treason is to let its vision drown in the swamp of the moment's torture." Ayn Rand

When we were first married..I had a tattered and worn Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.
I had read it so much.
It just seemed like something I needed at the season of my life.
I no longer have that tattered book, but I enjoyed the entertainment and thought it provided then and now.

You should get the quotes put into vinyl lettering so you can hang it all over your house! Love you!

You know what Arlene? I actually have never read Atlas Shrugged- but I want to so bad...I have read a lot of her words- but not her most famous one of all!!! I was actually afraid to even post her quotes due to controversy...

Jaynee...I don't think so with the vinyl lettering...too Utah I think. I would probably need granite countertops, a 10 foot wide back yard, and a stucco house to put vinyl lettering on my walls...LOL What happens when you are sick of the quote? You have to repaint-
