Quote of the Day

Back at my office in Oklahoma, I used to have a white board where I would write a quote of the day. I tried to keep it fun and lighthearted, but at times I would find a quote to match the prevalent mood at the office. It was a really great and fun thing that other people started participating in. People would recommend quotes or a theme for a quote and I’d randomly find fortune cookie slips on my desk with fun quotes to put on the board. I really enjoyed doing that and the fun we all had with the different quotes. And I miss it. Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, I’m going to start posting quotes on here. Because I love quotes. Here is the one for today:

All life demands struggle. Those who have everything given to them become lazy, selfish, and insensitive to the real values of life. The very striving and hard work that we so constantly try to avoid is the major building block in the person we are today.~Pope Paul VI
