Quotable Quotes...

Last year, my mom got me a subscription to Reader's Digest. I love Reader's Digest for two reasons: 1) Because of the variety of subject matter that its articles cover, it makes the perfect bathroom magazine, and 2) The Quotable Quotes section. I don't know why, but I'm obsessed with quotes. They're the first thing I turn to in RD and US Weekly.

Here's some of my favorite Quotable Quotes from the past four months...



  • "Temptation usually comes in through a door that has been deliberately left open." Arnold Glasow

  • "Even the worst haircut eventually grows out." Lisa Kogan in O

  • "Be open to learning new lessons even if they contradict the lessons you learned yesterday." Ellen DeGeneres in Elle

  • "Hot heads and cold hearts never solved anything." Billy Graham

  • "To say my fate is not tied to your fate is like saying, 'Your end of the boat is sinking'." Hugh Downs in My America (Scribner)

  • "Life asks us to make measurable progress in reasonable time. That's why they make those fourth-grade chairs so small-so you won't fit in them at age 25." Jim Rohn in Jim Rohn's weekly e-zine

  • "The beaten path is the safest, but the traffic's terrible."
    Jeff Taylor founder of monster.com

  • "People will accept your ideas much more readily if you tell them Benjamin Franklin said it first." David H. Comins

  • "You have to remember one thing about the will of the people: it wasn't that long ago that we were swept away by the macarena."
    Jon Stewart

    I've never been more excited to hear that I'm not the only one who has a subscription to Readers Digest.

    Nice picture. I love quotes too. I do not, however, have a subscription to Reader's Digest.
