What's your favourite quote?

One that keeps coming to mind at the moment is: "History is made by first timers" by Bill Clinton of all people...


I like “You can’t change the cards you’re dealt – you have to play them.” I forget who said this I think "You must be the change you wish to see in the world." Mahatma Ghandi, when I'm not thinking "this, too, shall pass" I live "Find what you love to do, and then work out how to get someone to pay you to do it" My ex-husband used to say this. And I know "Timing, is everything" I say "When I want to watch a movie, I make one"

How many have you made? I'll allow you to use the ones of your daughter cooking, etc...

If I can include the ones I make with the kids, and the ones I worked on in California, and the ones I've worked on in New Zealand, and interviews, and behind the scenes stuff, and shorts, and things for Uni... no idea.


This ones a goody.... Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear. —Ambrose Redmoon

Nice one.


couple of mine are Act without expectation. - lao tzu and Sometimes not getting what you want is the best stroke of luck - dalai lama


Oh, and: "One often meets his destiny on the road he takes to avoid it." - Oogway, a very clever turtle.... One of my favs of all time.

Quit, don't quit? Noodles, don't noodles?

and of course I often have cause to quote:

There is no charge for awesomeness... or attractiveness.
