Blogging from A to Z April Challenge- Letter Q

WELCOME, EVERYONE:

 to my second year in the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge.

Since I plan to retire shortly, I thought an alphabetical look back at my paying library career and a look ahead to my crafting and writing career would be a good use of my 26 days in this challenge, 26 wonderful words for retiring me. Hope you enjoy. I am looking forward to reading whatever you share this month on your blogs, too.

LOOKING BACK: 
Quibble- (a use of ambiguous, prevaricating or irreverent language or arguments to evade a point of issue.) 
"One of the hardest decisions you'll ever face in life is choosing whether to walk away or try harder."

I won't quibble with you on this point, the Board is the major reason I am retiring. There has been no forward motion for the the Library in over three years. The staff tries harder with less and less, the Board quibbles over everything.

Looking ahead: 
Quotes- (to repeat a passage, phrase,etc. from a book, speech or the like.)
Here are a few of my current favorites:
"Just at the lacy edge of the sea." Mary Oliver
"Things that matter the most must never be at the mercy of things that matter least." Goethe
"We lose ourselves in something we love, we find ourselves there, too." Kiristen Martz
"You are about to exceed the limits of my medication.
"Arts and crafts keep me sane" Mary Engelbreit
And
"As i have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but, pissing everyone off is a piece of cake."

I love the quote "You are about to exceed the limits of my medication." Too funny!

I don't know who said the last one but I agree.

A lot.

I wish I could remember quotes for long enough to have a favourite! Sadly I have a poor memory for that kind of thing. Including jokes. Sigh.

I like your approach to the Challenge this year. The quote by Goethe is one that I should heed more carefully.
