I love quotes too! I've collected 52 of my favorite quotes and am posting a new one accompanied by one of my horse paintings each week on my blog. It was fun pairing quotes with horse paintings!

The quotes and paintings illustrate a weekly To Do List, that you can print for free "To Do List."

Here's this week's: http://www.karenbrenner.com/images/W...ner/1-18-9.pdf

There's a new quote/picture combo each week on my blog: Karen Brenner Blogs about her Horse Paintings and Equine Adventures

I've always enjoyed the 2 in my signature.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.
