my name is yahidith monnalisa (yes, middle name Tongue) i currently live in cabarete, dominican republic. in a few months i will be returning to beautiful, sunny florida, my home. i have been into arts and crafts ever since i can remember. i love to create and enjoy the entire process.

to get a better feel about me and my philosophies in life, what better way than quotes! here are a few of my favorites:

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

When a bonsai stops growing, you know it's dead.
-Japanese Proverb

Live as if your were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.
-Mahatma Gandhi

Throw your heart over the fence and the rest will follow.
-Norman Vincent Peale

Empty pockets never held anyone back. Only empty heads and empty hearts can do that.
-Norman Vincent Peale

Never give in! Never give in! Never, never, never. Never -- in anything great or small, large or petty -- never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense.
-Sir Winston Churchill

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
-Sir Winston Churchill

The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.
-Elie Wiesel

Stand up for what is right even if you stand alone."

The important thing is not to stop questioning.
-Albert Einstein
