Random Thoughts, Quotes and Musings

I remember things so much better if I write them down. 
That's why I have lists of my lists - literally!! 
It's in my DNA. 
I can't help myself! 
It's not unusual for me to find scraps of paper everywhere with some quote or random thought written on it.
As I was going through a bunch of folders and papers, trying to achieve some semblance of order, I found a bunch of those papers.  So here are, for your enjoyment, Donna's random thoughts, quotes and musings!!  Some are mine, others I won't claim and in most cases, I will try hard to give credit where credit is due, but in a lot of cases, I just plain don't remember!!
