The Way I See It
A while back, Starbucks introduced quotes on their hot coffee cups. This little addition is referred to as "The Way I See It." According to Starbucks, they began this as a part of the tradition of coffee houses. ". . . Starbucks has always supported a good, healthy discussion. To get people talking, 'The Way I See It' is a collection of thoughts, opinions and expressions provided by notable figures that now appear on our widely shared cups."

I love to find little quotes that inspire me for the moment, make me think, invoke a smile, or in some way challenge me. Here are a couple of quotes that I have written where I see them frequently:

You are what you repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, it's a habit. --Aristotle

The power I exert on the court depends on the power of my arguments, not on my gender. --Sandra Day O'Connor, Supreme Court Justice

On Saturday I was having a lovely day with family and friends. When we stopped for coffee, my sister's coffee cup had this quote:
"Risk taking, trust, and serendipity are key ingredients of joy. Without
risk, nothing ever happens. Without trust, fear creeps in. Without
serendipity, there are no surprises." -- Rita Golden Gelman. Tales of a
Female Nomad

It was a serendipitous moment indeed. The way I see it, I don't have too much of a problem with risk taking. I'm working on the trust part. A little serendipity would be nice. So today I raise my soy latte in a toast to risk taking, trust, and serendipity. To joy!

What is your favorite quote? Do you remember any quotes from the Starbucks cups?

This is my story about being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 39. I thought I was out of the woods, but four years late it came back. This is my quest to be a two-time survivor.
