I have a cute little journal that I’ve been writing quotes or sayings in over the past couple of years. I thought I would share some of my favorite ones – this will be a multi-part entry over several weeks so as not to overwhelm the senses.

Quotes That Speak To Me

Spend money on experiences instead of material things.

A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous. ~Coco Chanel

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming ‘Woo Hoo What a Ride!

Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before. ~Dalai Lama

The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page. ~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness. ~Mark Twain

In spite of everything, I still believe people are really good at heart. ~Anne Frank

I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list. ~Susan Sontag

I’m in love with cities I’ve never been to and people I’ve never met.

May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.  ~Irish Proverb

About alicrain

Wanderlust. Adventurer. Mom. Mentor. Change Agent. Crazy. Servant Leader. Citizen of the World These are all words that describe me - or have been used to describe me. There are many more but we won't get in to those. What is important to know is that at the age of 45, after having a successful career and raising a son, I decided I needed a new challenge and adventure in my life. So I joined the Peace Corps. Portions of this blog were written before this time and chronicle my life during graduate school (again, something I did in my 40s). During my service in Morocco (September 2016 - December 2018) I chronicled my daily life and all it entailed to live as an American female in another country. this is a place for me to capture random thoughts and share my life's journey
