“When anyone tells me I can't do anything, I'm just not listening any more.” Florence Griffith Joyner

As part of my Famous Women Quotes I thought in honor of the Olympics I'd share some quotes from Olympic women!

"It is better to look ahead and prepare than to look back and regret."
Jackie Joyner-Kersee

"It all comes down to having the confidence to be who you are."
Cathy Freeman

"It's better to have a rich soul than to be rich."
Olga Korbut
"They may become harder to achieve, but your dreams can't stop because you've hit a certain age or you've had a child." Dana Torres

"I am building a fire, and everyday I train, I add more fuel. At just the right moment, I light the match." Mia Hamm

Are you watching the Olympics? I am!

We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

I'm deeply troubled by the shooting last night in Colorado. So I thought today some quotes from Mother Teresa would fit into my Quotes by Famous Women series.

One of the greatest diseases is to be nobody to anybody.
Mother Teresa

The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.
Mother Teresa

We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls. Mother Teresa

Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.Mother Teresa

Love By Design - Magic Mike Part 2

Have you see Magic Mike yet? I haven't - not yet. My hero from Love By Design moonlights as a stripper. Last week I shared an excerpt from his point of view and this week as promised here is a short excerpt for Victoria's point of view the heroine of Love By Design.

     The crowd squealed. Victoria’s mouth dropped open. What kind of miraculous material held back what she knew lay behind the thong? It defied the Law of Physics. A definite marvel of textile technology. Too bad someone went crazy with a be-dazzler because his package didn’t need any embellishment. Her fingers itched to touch but that was probably off limits. Would a bouncer come drag her off stage if she did? What if THAT made the papers? Victoria could hold off for an hour or two. Then they’d be alone and she could touch anywhere she wanted. Eat your hearts out, ladies. A smile appeared on her face and she lifted her head as her hand drifted to rest on his chest. His heart beat erratically underneath her palm. Funny, she was sure her heart had stopped. Had she even taken a breath?

If you want to read Love By Design by Liz Matis it's available in all eBook formats for only 3.49 and the paperback is 11.99.
