Google vs. fellow quilters

I often use google but when it comes to quilting questions --- the quilters on this site always have the best answer. I'm in the planning stages of a pieced quilt that has solid squares where I can write quilting/sewing statements such as:
Sewing Heals the Soul
I feed my soul by the stitches I sew
My soul is fed by my sewing needle and thread
and I'm looking for additional statements and I'm wondering if you have additional ones you'd like to share.
Thanks in advance for any help.
Keep on quilting, Phyllis

    I have a fabric patch in my sewing room that I believe I got from Kathy B many years ago at a retreat. It says, "Asking a quilter to mend is like asking a chef to do the dishes." I love it.

    If you are a dog lover you might like "Dog hair warms all quilts." Of course this could be adapted to cats.

    Here are some quotes I had on my website till geocities closed down. I had a page just for osuch quotes and quips.

    A family is a patchwork of Love.

    A day hemmed in prayer seldom unravels.

    A fat quarter has fewer calories than cheesecake!

    Any day spent quilting is a good day.

    Asking a seamstress to mend is like asking Picasso to paint your garage!

    Blessed are the piecemakers!

    Blessed are the piecemakers, for they shall be comforters.

    Blessed are the children of piecemakers, for they shall inherit the quilts.

    I love quilting and have plenty of material witnesses.

    Quilting is cheaper than a psychiatrist.

    My husband lets me buy all the fabric I can hide!

    Sew much fabric, Sew little time!

    Sewing forever, housework whenever!
