FIVE...Of my favourite quotes I came across this week:

"God will change your circumstances, but He'll change you first." ~ Terri Savelle Foy

"The only way to get through life is to laugh your way through it.  You either have to laugh or cry.  I prefer to laugh.  Crying gives me a headache." ~ Marjorie Pay Hinckley

"Risks must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing." Leo Buscaglia

"My courage always rises with every attempt to intimidate me." Jane Austen (Pride and Prejudice)

"When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life.  When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up.  I wrote down "happy".  They told me that I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life." ~ John Lennon
