In thinking about my blog this week, I started thinking about what quote may have stood out to me, the only one I could remember this week, was from a former teen drama, “ I don’t know whether to laugh or to cry”. It stood out to me, since that was the kind of week I had been having, after having to cancel a trip to Mexico over this swine flu going on in Mexico. Seriously it is a bit crazy. And I hate that I am not going to see my friend whom I was meeting in Mexico.

Feeling that it was not the best quote for this blog, I simply typed in to the Yahoo search engine “best quotes ever”. I clicked on the first entry and here are the first ten I read.

The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority. The second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority. The first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking. —A. A. Milne

To the man who only has a hammer, everything he encounters begins to look like a nail.
—Abraham Maslow

We are what we repeatedly do; excellence, then, is not an act but a habit. —Aristotle

Hope you are all having a great week.
