Day 5- My Favorite Quote

There is one quote that I heard from a friend's dad when I was nine years old that has stuck with me through my life. Of course there were the times when I hated that it stuck with me but in the end I always knew the truth of it and realized the importance of understanding and believing. There is also a favorite scripture of mine that goes hand in hand with it and I'll share that too.

"Adversity is mandatory, misery is optional."

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

What is your favorite?

"Adversity is mandatory, misery is optional." LOVE IT!

I'd have to say my favorite is one I heard all the time growing up and one I use all the time since becoming a mil spouse. (Don't know who originally said it.)

Everything happens for a reason.

-"On the ladder of success, never let the men look up your skirt!"

-Well behaved women rarely make history."

I haven't heard this quote before, but I absolutely love it and agree 100% with it. Love the bible verse, too :)

My favorite is "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence in not an act but a habit." which I actually had on the bathroom mirror in the Chandler house!
