I'm starting to get really into quotes lately, so I thought it would be fun if we all posted our favourite quote in this thread! It would be a wonderful resource for all of us to have!!!

Here is mine:

"Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow.
Don't walk behind me, I may not lead.
Walk beside me and be my friend."
- Albert Camus

I love this quote!!!

I absolutley LOVE to use quotes on almost all of my layouts. This is a great idea!
Here's mine-- don't know who to credit with this ---if anyone is familiar with the author let me know,

"Here's to strong women--may we know them---may we be them."

This is such a great thread to have - I was stuck for something to add to one of my layouts the other day, and then I remembered this thread, so over I toddled, and found the perfect quote :)

Thanks Steph for such a great idea and thanks Debra for the quote (I know it isn't yours but you put it in here!!!)

Hmmm, I just had a thought - wouldn't it be nice to have a seperate "Inspiration Alley" forum - then the quotes could be catagorized and easy to find the one you want?

02-12-2007, 12:00 PM
yep..that's a great idea!

When first she gleam'd upon my sight;
A lovely apparition, sent
To be a moment's ornament.
