The expression on your face says it all - OM [one moment] meet up #29

Be it parent to child, partner to partner, friend to friend, our facial expression has impact on others. A friend posted this quote on Facebook this week and I thought it was one to share and remember.

"A new idea is delicate.
It can be killed by a sneer or a yawn;
it can be stabbed to death by a joke or
worried to death by a frown
on the right person's brow."    

[Charles Brower]

I love quotes.  Do you have a favorite one?  Please share it with us.

  1. One of my favorite quotes is "Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole." ~Roger Caras

    I think it applies to most animals. When I hear someone say they don't have pets because of "the hair" or the like, it makes me go hmmmmm.

  2. I love this quote. It really is an important one to remember, especially for me. Growing up, my mom was very critical and as a result I'm pretty critical of both my own work and others. I'm aware of this and always careful. I really should hang this somewhere, so I remember to always be gentle and aware of others ideas.

    One of my favorite quotes is "Don't be afraid of the space between your dreams and reality. If you can dream it, you can make it so." ~Belva Davis

  3. Oh! I love quotes. I need to think about which would be my very favorite. I'll be back to share!

  4. Ok, this is my favorite quote today. Tomorrow it will be different. "The connections we make in the course of a life--maybe that's what heaven is."
    — Fred Rogers

  5. Mmmmmm, my favourite quote is one from a Chinese fortune cookie:
    "Keep your face to the sunshine and you will never see the shadows".
