I love comments, and in fact relish them. They are like little treasures to me and alot of the time they spark a new post that I just have to write. Cielo from The House in The Roses (who has an amazingly beautiful blog, she's got creamware up right now) left a comment on my Blog Design Give-away post that did just that. She commented that her and Helen Hayes were kindred spirits and I wanted to share more quotes by the famous actress in honor of that "connection". Enjoy....and thank you, Cielo......

“We relish news of our heroes, forgetting that we are extraordinary to somebody too.”

“I cry out for order and find it only in art.”

“If you rest, you rust.”

“My mother drew a distinction between achievement and success. She said that achievement is the knowledge that you have studied and worked hard and done the best that is in you. Success is being praised by others. That is nice but not as important or satisfying. Always aim for achievement and forget about success.”

“Age is not important unless you're a cheese.”

“Every human being on this earth is born with a tragedy, and it isn't original sin. He's born with the tragedy that he has to grow up...a lot of people don't have the courage to do it.”

I'm beginning to think Cielo isn't the only one who is kindred spirits with this famous actress. Such wisdom........

Aren’t those great quotes? It amazes me how much Helen Hayes and I think alike... thank you so much for such a beautiful post. My heart is singing!

Your blogs are beautiful, and so are YOU.

Nice quote about achievement and success. I would always keep that in mind. I realized that even though I am trying hard to become successful at least I have achieved a lot.

I visited an interesting site I want to share with you the Young Entrepreneur Society from the A great documentary about successful entrepreneurs.
