Since my Thanksgiving weekend started today (Yay - no school or work until Monday!) I decided to post the challenge today. For all our American peeps, Thanksgiving is a very busy time so maybe posting early will help you squeeze in writing time. (For our non-American peeps, sure hope you don't mind the early timeframe!)

I have found quotes on Thanksgiving, Family, and Desserts. You can have as many of each as you want! Just give me the topic and the quote number(s) you want. Thanksgiving has 35 quotes, Family 40 quotes, and Desserts 60 quotes.

So your request might look like this:

Thanksgiving, quote 3 & 18
Family, quote 39
Dessert, quote 9 & 59

Or something.

Anyway, post your requests and I'll reply with your quotes as quickly as I can.

Have a safe and fabulous holiday and/or weekend!

You got it!

Thanksgiving #6: What we're really talking about is a wonderful day set aside on the fourth Thursday of November when no one diets. I mean, why else would they call it Thanksgiving? ~Erma Bombeck

#12: Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds. ~Theodore Roosevelt

#32: Thanksgiving is an emotional holiday. People travel thousands of miles to be with people they only see once a year. And then discover once a year is way too often. ~Johnny Carson

Family: #6: The thing about family disasters is that you never have to wait long before the next one puts the previous one into perspective. ~Robert Brault

#12: Family quarrels have a total bitterness unmatched by others. Yet it sometimes happens that they also have a kind of tang, a pleasantness beneath the unpleasantness, based on the tacit understanding that this is not for keeps; that any limb you climb out on will still be there later for you to climb back. ~Mignon McLaughlin

#32: If the family were a fruit, it would be an orange, a circle of sections, held together but separable — each segment distinct. ~Letty Cottin Pogrebin

Desserts: #6: Stressed spelled backwards is desserts. Coincidence? I think not! ~Author Unknown

#12: Forget love — I'd rather fall in chocolate! ~Attributed to Sandra J. Dykes

#32: Save the earth. It's the only planet with chocolate. ~Author Unknown

Here you are!

Family #4 The family is a haven in a heartless world. ~Attributed to Christopher Lasch

#18 Family quarrels are bitter things. They don’t go by any rules. They’re not like aches or wounds; they’re more like splits in the skin that won’t heal because there’s not enough material. ~F. Scott Fitzgerald

#21 ’Ohana means family — no one gets left behind, and no one is ever forgotten. ~Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois, Lilo & Stitch

Desserts #1 Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first. ~Ernestine Ulmer

#2 I doubt whether the world holds for anyone a more soul-stirring surprise than the first adventure with ice cream. ~Heywood Broun


Hope these work out for you! If you need substitutes, let me know!
