Women's Wit Quotes 1/20 & 1/21

I believe I've mentioned before the cool quote-a-day calendar my man got me for Christmas. It's called Women's Wit, and so far it's quoted everyone from Anais Nin to Tina Turner to Bette Davis. I really liked yesterday's quote (from one of my all-time favorite actresses) and today's, too. So I will now share them with you.

Wed. 1/20

"I'm as ambitious as the next working woman. I'm not going to pretend that I don't want to be good at what I do and that I don't care a lot about it, because I do. But it doesn't define me." - Jennifer Garner.

I love Jennifer Garner. And I like this quote because it's exactly how I feel. Sometimes I feel guilty if I'm not spending ALL of my time on writing, or drumming up publicity or going to events to network (I HATE that word). But then I realize that if I want to spend time with my family and cook real food (which I love to do), and go to football games, and work out, and read books and HAVE A LIFE then I can't spend every single second stressing about my career. Because, while I've always been ambitious, that's never been ALL of who I am. It's nice to know that Jen is in the same boat. Although hers is much prettier, wealthier and more famous.

Thurs. 1/21

"I have witnessed the softening of the hardest of hearts by a simple smile." - Goldie Hawn

This is completely and totally true. The next time the person behind the counter at the drug store or the post office or wherever is being totally rude and gruff, give him a big smile and say "please" and "thank you" and "have a nice day." It not only makes you feel better, but it will remind that person that not everyone in the world is nasty and impatient like the people who came before you--who probably put him in that mood in the first place. :)

Wow, I really like those quotes, especially Jennifer Garner's, because I love her too! My favorite show is Alias and I absolutely adores her in that! Anyway, reading Goldie Hawn's quote makes me want to just smile at everyone. These quotes are inspiring. :)

I love both of these quotes, that's a nice calender you got! :) I'm still in high school, and I feel like all the decisions I make from now on are either going to benefit my future career or my relationships. It's nice to know there truly is a balance.
