Studio Friday: Quoted

This is a little different for me; I usually post my Studio Friday entries on my jewelry blog. But today's topic, "Quoted", seemed more fitting to the public speaking blog this time. And considering I'm usually late or forget altogether, here's my post a day early.

Here's the topic: "Quotes are so inspiring. They give us comfort in rough times or the push we need to overcome our obstacles or fears. They enlighten us and give clarity and "A-ha's". Some we keep around for a life time and let them guide us, others we forget about. We work with them maybe or pass them on to others."
~ Robyn

I've found some great quotes lately that have to do with being who you are and not worrying about what other people think. I guess this is an ongoing theme in my life.

I'm not generally a quote-keeper. I can't ever remember who said what or when, and I've never really had a quote stick with me long enough to make a huge impact. Here are some I've found worth keeping:

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. ~Pablo Picasso

I stopped worrying about what people would think about me, when I realized how seldom people think about anyone but themselves. ~Stephen Eggleston

And last, but not least, from "Say Anything":

Diane: "Nobody thought we'd do this. Nobody really thinks it's going to work, do they?"
Lloyd: "You’ve just described every great success story."

I love them all....especially the picasso one. As adult we tend to think too much. I love watching children create art. They just go for it with no thought whatsoever other than what they want to create.
