Bring on 2013

Happy new year!

Good riddance, 2012. I present thirteen quotes for ’13. Who needs resolutions?


1) “The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi

2) “A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other virtues.” ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero

3) “Keep away from those who try to belittle your own ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you believe that you too can be great.” ~ Mark Twain

4) “He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier still.” ~ Lao Tzu

5) “A woman is like a tea bag– yo u can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

6) ” I am ready to meet my Maker. Whether my Maker is prepared for the ordeal of meeting me is another matter.” ~ Winston Churchill

7) “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed group of individuals can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” ~ Margaret Mead

9) It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.” ~ Maya Angelou

10) “Motherhood is a choice you make everyday, to put someone else’s happiness and well-being ahead of your own, to teach the hard lessons, to do the right thing even when you’re not sure what the right thing is…and to forgive yourself, over and over again, for doing everything wrong.” ~ Donna Ball

11) “I don’t think it’s possible to have a sense of tragedy without having a sense of humor.” ~ Christopher Hitchens

12) “A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.” ~ Albert Camus

13) “On the contrary, your Honor. I was doing my best to conceal it.” ~ Mae West

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,


About Cocktails With Hemingway

I'm blunt and opinionated. Virtually everything I say or do is a contradiction but I'm not a hypocrite. I never hesitate to speak my mind and never fail to leave an impression wherever I go. You love me, you hate me, but you'll never forget me.
