    Ckirrine, your selection of quotes is excellent.I loved John Wooden’s quote on time management the most.

  9. Martha Orlando Martha Orlando January 26, 2015

    I like the quote from John Wooden – if we don’t put the time and care into doing something right the first time, no matter how much time that takes, we will be doomed to doing it over and over again. My time is precious, yet I don’t always treat it that way; something I need to work on, especially with working on the rest of my novels. 🙂
    Time’s a-wasting!
    Blessings, Corinne!
