Thirteen Quotes

I know this is only my third Thursday Thirteen, but I just had to post a collection of my favorite quotes. I know, it's awfully soon to be resorting to the subject of quotes. I just really love them. So much so that as an extra bonus, I'm including 3 additional quotes- all free of cost to you, the reader.
Furthermore, in my sidebar, there is a list of 100's and it includes 100 of my favorite quotes. Again, no extra charge to you.
  • We can do no great things, only small things, with great love. Mother Teresa.
  • In the depths of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer. Albert Camus
  • It’s not that easy being green. Kermit the Frog
  • I am a slow walker, but I never walk backwards. Abraham Lincoln
  • You are destined to fly, but that cocoon has to go. Nelle Morton
  • Damaged people are dangerous. They know they can survive. Anna Barton
  • He that would be a leader must also be a bridge. Welsh Proverb
  • Here I stand, I cannot do otherwise. Martin Luther
  • We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out. Ray Bradbury
  • People are like stained glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within. Elizabeth Kubler Ross
  • It is the creative potential itself in human beings that is the image of God. Mary Daly
  • Do not assume that she who seeks to comfort you now lives untroubled among the simple and quiet words that sometimes do you good. Her life may also have much sadness and difficulty, that remains far beyond yours. Were it otherwise, she would never have been able to find these words. Rainer Maria Rilke
  • I have spread my dreams beneath your feet. Tread softly because you tread on my dreams. Yeats
  • She is too fond of books and it has turned her brain. Louisa May Alcott
  • This writing business. Pencils and what-not. Overrated if you ask me. Silly stuff. Nothing in it. Eeyore
  • It’s a dangerous business going out your front door. JRR Tolkien

Not sure if it's my computer...but your playlist thing extends over your quotes, so I couldn't read all of them. But what I read...were wonderful!

Here's a favorite of mine:

Your quotes are great. Some of them were new to me but all of them were so true.
