Quotes of Women, Love and Life :)

Yes, yes, lot of pink and girlish things are on their way :)
Well, what can I do that I was born as a girl and found it fascinating to read the every day quotes from the "Desk Calendar for Women".
As all my notebooks come and go as they please and it is almost impossible to keep a track on them, I better get the list of my favorites down here.
Well, as there were 360 something in total, my list of favorites is not very short either.
Yeah, which means that here will be quite many of them but so what?!
... I mean, it´s not as if there was a word limit or something when blogging. So, why should I try to make it short then !?
Just, I never know when I need to get some inspiration ;) Remember, like the "good old" times, when I wasn´t using my own thoughts but was constantly referring to somebody else´s wise words.
Heh, no need to remind me that though :)

Actually, one more thing. When writing all those dates, you know 1879-1865 etc etc, it made me think about the saying I´ve heard many times. Well it has been a day quotes already anyway :) That in the end THE LIFE WILL BE ONLY THE CAP BETWEEN TWO NUMBERS !!!
That's all it is.

You know, all this struggle for one single short line?
At least those people have their names and some sentences in addition to this cap between two numbers.
What is the legacy I want to leave behind?
What would I like to add into the cap between the 2 numbers? :) Bit hard topic, I know but today is bit mad in general.
It started in the morning when I had the weirdest dream ever. I think I have never ever had so many characters in my dreams during one night and such a wide range topics covered.
It started with my dad and doing some business plan with him, then there were loads of people I have worked with. My dad wanted to share a small shop and to share it with 7 more partners and so were discussing products, prizes and I remember that for me this sharing thing seemed very weird and I did everything to convince him to change his mind.
Another moment I was in high-school, letting everybody know that I am leaving for good ... I was crying like crazy (in the dream I mean) and then, a minute later, it was still me but in a complete rush, running away from someone, hiding myself into the plane and locking myself into the plane for many years.
By that time I was a black woman who suddenly had 4 black babies ??? and I was doing their laundry all day long, still locked in the plane, all my life was there really...Jesus Christ, like really, it was so damn real, all of it... so much so that the first minutes after an alarm I didn´t understand a thing??
All I felt was that I was so very exhausted from this night which was full of all those more than weird dreams?
But now I really gotta go to bed ... and have some new "interesting" dreams may be? Lol
