Every once in a while a good quote or saying is helpful to keep everything in perspective.  I have a collection of miniature books and found the following quotes from  Women’s Wit and Wisdom to be exactly what I needed today.

♦ The one important thing I have learned over the years is the difference between taking one’s work seriously and taking one’s self seriously.  The first is imperative and the second is disastrous. Margot Fonteyn (1919-1991)

♦ How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone. Coco Chanel (1883-1971)

♦ Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity. Oprah Winfrey (b. 1953)
