    I had a T-Shirt once that said:

    The Nurses day:
    A needle in the butt, a tube down a nose, some poopy in a pan, so our day goes.

    Don't know what ever happened to that T-Shirt but I loved the saying. It was typical.

    Some of my favorites:

    A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step,

    ~Lao Tzu

    You don't own anything that you can't carry on your back at a dead run.


    Anywhere is within walking distance if you have the time.

    Quote from ZASHAGALKA
    Y'all missed the best quote I've seen on here and don't know who to source it to: Being a good nurse is not always the same as being a good employee.

    So well said..puts things in perspective when caring becomes a business and "positive financial contribution" becomes more the expectation than delivery of outstanding care. You made my day

    What my mom would say each time I'd say "I am going to run away from home!"

    "Don't let the door hit you in the arse on the way out".

    No she was not drunk.

    I have a lot of quotes and poems, here's a few. I love people and someday, I pray, this world would learn LOVE.

    "I expect to pass through the world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness I can show to any creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer it, for I shall not pass this way again."

    "What wisdom can you find that is greater than kindness"

    "There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it."

    Real generosity is doing something nice for someone who will never find out.

    "It's not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something. May I suggest that it be creating joy for others, sharing what we have for the betterment of personkind, bringing hope to the lost and love to the lonely."

    "You can never do a kindness too soon because you never know how soon it will be too late."

    "The best place to find a helping hand is at the end of your own arm."

    "Compassion is the basis of morality."

    A person's true wealth is the good he or she does in the world.

    "Ya can't cure stupid"

    And "ate up", we used to use this in the Army all the time. If someone looks bad, bags under eyes, tired "You look ate up." Or if there is a messed up anything, its "ate up".

    "Chaos, panic, work here is done."

    "Sarcasm, yet another service I offer."

    "Keep it rubber side down." (motorcyclists credo)

    Jesus loves you.
