  1. Ha! I like quotes Mimi – one of my favourites is “There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting”… I always have trouble with the ‘not going all the way’ bit 🙂

  2. One of my favorite quotes is, “Life is actually really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” I’m not sure who said it, but they must have known me in a past life. As a fellow psychology nerd, I’m notorious for over-thinking and over-analyzing things to death, and it often takes a reminder from those around me to stop over-complicating what’s right in front of me.

  3. I’m a new fan since you followed ME on twitter. These quotes are fabulous, and I will share them with abandon! Today I like the one that combines lemonade and vodka – nothing better than a lemon drop martini with sugar on the rim! 🙂
