What is your favorite quote?

Time again for the newest challenge at http://whatisyourfavething.blogspot.com/
What is your favorite quote?
Be sure to check our the DT and GDT layouts!!!
and also don't forget the DT call that closes Jan 27!!!!
My quotation is from George Eliot:
"It is never too late to be what you might have been."
I have taken this quotation to heart - I know that the larger part of my life is over
and that I have only X years left to accomplish things.
I feel good about I have accomplished so far
BUT
I have dreams that are yet to be tried -
 I had to put my artistic goals on hold while I was raising a family and working
so now
I am concentrating on my art -
I AM AN ARTIST.
This layout is a crazy mix of Arches cover paper, Prima paper, some scrap fabrics, mix and match alphas, a stray brad, a vellum butterfly, a clothes label, Gecko Galz ephemera, and the front page of my artist resume and statement.
Thanks for reading and hope your day is special!
ttfn
Chris

I enjoy taking a peek at a little bit of your life and alot of your style!!! the quote is perfect! It really moved me, becuase sometimes I feel like it is "too late" I am too busy being a mom and wife. I know that there will be a time for me though:) Thank you for being you and letting us see your brilliant talent! I wish I could be a lil fly in your studio!!!!
