Quotes by friends/family

With a southern US family background and a culture of oral tradition, I think that I may have an unfair advantage BUT I do love this list idea and hope that some of my answers, of famous people's quotes that I remember family stating, are interesting / helpful for others....

    1. Abraham Lincoln said

    "Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing." As a US patriot after Independence Day, I can say that I believe this is most true in America - and is one of the biggest draws that our country still has [despite national setbacks and issues].

    2. Thomas Jefferson said

    "I am a great believer in luck, and I find that the harder I work, the more I have of it." This was one of my paternal grandfather's favorite sayings that he restate to all the grandkids as left the house after rising everyday at dawn, got dressed and woke us up before leaving for a full day of work 6 days a week.

    3. Eleanor Roosevelt said

    "Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, while small minds discuss people." when hearing that someone was talking down to or poorly about our family -- my maternal grandmother liked to quote her favorite s-hero.

    4. My uncle's version of a Tennessee Williams quote that said

    "We live in a perpetually burning building of Time, and what we must save from oblivion, are those memories of love." Such a wonderful man and despite never having had children always made me feel like I had those memories from my time with him.
