Words of Wisdom

Since I was young I have collected "Words of Wisdom" or at least what I consider to be such. I have slowly started to gather all of my worn and aged snippets of paper and enter the text in to the computer and I would like to share some of my favorite ones with you.

They will change periodically so please check back if you are interested in this sort of thing. I also welcome your contribution to my collection.

How we got our cliches & Fun Facts

Poems & Sonnets

Poem for Mothers


O! Give Me Patience


Beatitudes for Children

Words For a Daughter

What Is A Girl?

Have Your Fortune Told by Estrellas

You can't base your life on other peoples expectations.

You can either complain that rose bushes have thorns - or rejoice that thorn bushes have roses   ..... unknown

We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face ... we must do that which we think we cannot.
Eleanor Roosevelt

Words For A Daughter - A wonderful poem for the parents of girls, especially teenage girls.


If you don't have a dream, how are you going to make a dream come true?
..........Oscar Hammerstein


The Negro Speaks of Rivers

I've known rivers; I've known rivers ancient as the world and older than the flow of human blood in human veins.

My soul has grown deep like the rivers.

I bathed in the Euphrates when the dawns were young. I built my hut near the Congo and it lulled me to sleep.

I looked upon the Nile and raised the pyramids above it. I heard the singing of the Mississippi when Abe Lincoln went down to New Orleans, and I've seen its muddy bosom turn all golden in the sunset.

I've known rivers: Ancient dusky rivers.

My soul has grown deep like rivers.

....... Langston Hughes

Only one thing matters - That wherever we go and however we go, We hear the music of life.... Theodor Fontane

Happiness is in the heart, not in the circumstances.

Woman Lithograph and Poem from the Queen's Gift Book - 1915

Friends are like fiddle-stings... they must not be screwed too tight.  .... H.G. Bohn

I was angry with my friend; I told my wrath my wrath did end.

I was angry with my foe; I told it not, my wrath did grow.  ...... William Blake

Things I Have Learned - I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life." I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands. You need to be able to throw something back. I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

Forgiveness is the sweetest revenge.

A Poem For Mothers
A Poem For Mothers

When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us. .... Helen Keller

Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail  -  Muriel Strode


vintage and antique ephemera

I am working on putting my vintage and antique ephemera and vintage photographs on CD's and archival paper for all of you scrapbooker's. I hope to have this project complete in a few months. The above postcard is just one of the pieces that I will be re-creating. I have been collecting bits or paper piece, old magazines, scrap and the like since I was a teenager back in the 1970s... I was also collecting antique paper pieces back then too. This will be a great and varied assortment of items.

I also have some encyclopedias from the 1940s for altered books if you are interested in those
