creativity - emerge."

Deb Graham, Tips From The Cruise Addict's Wife

being served. And when this happens to you, we hope that you'll then
take the next step: share the experience."
Doug Cutchins, Volunteer Vacations

We may even come back more tired than before we left."

shortened my lifespan by a few months. But I was also deliriously contented,
which is surely what it's all about."
Cash Peters, Best Vacation EVER!

of the spirit."
"It is better to travel hopefully than to arrive disenchanted."
Be inspired by taking the time to appreciate the beauty around you while you are

Holiday Quotes for a Happy Holiday
Let your holidays be associated with great public events,
and they may be the life of patriotism as well as a source of relaxation and personal employment.
The holiest of all holidays are those kept by ourselves in silence
and apart, the secret anniversaries of the heart, when the full tide
of feeling overflows.
As a die-hard foodie, my ultimate holiday is of course Thanksgiving. I wait for this day for 364 days, and the moment it's over I begin running ideas through the back of my head for the next one.
Jan Charles, Happier Holidays
Every man who possibly can should force himself to a holiday
of a full month in a year, whether he feels like taking it or not.
As we get older, we often change into a blinkered mind-set and
forget what once made us happy. We get stuck in the rat race or
are continuously saving for a holiday that we have booked or we
are too busy working to take a moment and see what once made us joyful.
Danielle Tinning, How to Succeed
The Christmas tree decorated and bright for all to see when we turn on the lights. May this holiday be one that is filled with cheer for you and for those that you hold so dear.
If you really want to find out the level of commitment and dedication
to the job, ask them if they ever take a holiday where they are not
in touch with their company staff by either phone, email or blackberry.
You will be surprised that many of these top executives and company
owners never leave their business totally - they are involved no matter
where they are.
Byron Pulsifer, Success One Word
How you feel about home after holiday says a lot about home.

Hillbilly Housewife, On St. Patrick's Day Everyone Can Be Irish
Irish Quotes and Sayings
Some people are born happy. No matter what their circumstances are,
they are joyous, content, and satisfied with everything.
They carry a perpetual holiday in their eyes, and see joy and beauty
Orison Swett Marden, Character
Christmas is not just an annual holiday. It is not a day to glorify selfishness
and materialism. Christmas is the celebration of the event that set heaven
to singing, an event that gave the stars of the night sky a new brilliance.
Holidays are enticing only for the first week or so.
After that, it is no longer such a novelty to rise late and have little to do.
Traveling is not just seeing the new; it is also leaving behind.
Not just opening doors; also closing them behind you, never to return.
But the place you have left forever is always there for you to see
whenever you shut your eyes.
Uncles and aunts, and cousins, are all very well, and fathers and
mothers are not to be despised; but a grandmother, at holiday time,
is worth them all.
Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it
with us or we find it not.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Retirement may be looked upon either as a prolonged holiday or as a rejection, a being thrown on to the scrap-heap.
Simone de Beauvoir
One day we will look back and realize some things,
Like how much we've missed out on.
Holidays, parties, vacations and sports,
We will wonder where life has gone.
Julie Hebert, Do Less
Poems about Life
The event which Christmas commemorates means more to the world
as a whole than any other holiday that we observe.
Lucretia Walker Hardy
Traditionally, the holiday season is a time to highlight the truly human
qualities of peace, of generosity, and of understanding. No matter how
we choose to celebrate this season, regardless of whom we share this time
with, and no matter where we decide to gather, this time of year reminds us
that the beliefs that unite us are far greater than those which divide us.
Shawn Graham and Roxanne Reeves, 2009 Christmas message
Family Vacation Quotes
"When it comes to the summer months most people start to think
about where they will be going on vacation. This is the time of year when
most individuals take time off of work because the kids are out of school.
It is the perfect time for everyone to spend time together and to regroup
from the stress that is often experienced with everyday life."
Cindy Crawford, Vacation Deals
"It's not about balance, it's about designing a work-home-family life
that makes you feel good. A life you don't need a vacation from."
Jacqueline Fisch, Unfussy Mom
"THANKSGIVING Is a holiday filled with family, friends, and great food.
It's a celebration of abundance and appreciation."
Rodney Miles, Thanksgiving Around the World and in Your Home
"Vacation is the term applied to a trip that involves just the two of us.
Family trips are not really vacations, except in the strict sense that
we have vacated one set of premises and moved the general hullabaloo
right along with us."
Robert Benson, Home by Another Way
"For our family, Christmas really is the most wonderful time of the year,
and we look forward to the holiday season all year long.
Not because of the presents we'll receive but because of the memories
and traditions it holds, the opportunities to give and serve as a family,
and the focus we put on enjoying each other and all that it offers!"
Mandi Ehman, 101 More Day of Christmas

children always too busy to give them more than just a few hours of

Byron Pulsifer, The View From A Hospital Window
"In America, there are two classes of travel: first-class and with children."
"I think it is absolutely vital when you are married with children
to have at least one trip away a year without the kids. No matter
how much we love them, it's really important to remember we are
part of a couple too, otherwise the kids completely take over."
Jason Ayres, Austerity Dad
"In the end, kids won't remember that fancy toy or game you bought
them, they will remember the time you spent with them."
Funny Vacation Quotes To Make You Smile

Quotes to Live By
"The average vacation is one-tenth playing - nine-tenths paying."
"Imagine that -we now live in a world where a manager's approval is needed

four years ago."

Funny Quotes about Life

to overcome or resolve."

your anxiety. It is a time to let your mind go to zero by not thinking of
the issue at hand."
