oodles of goodles birthday giveaway!

Glenville of oodles and goodles is holding a birthday giveaway contest that’s open to anyone who would like to join.

She is giving away awesome prizes and I can’t resist myself from joining.

Up for grabs:
1. Nighty Night! and Hello Morning! handmade and natural linen sprays from Life Amulets‘ Relaxation and Attention lines;
2. One Moleskine Pocket Ruled Notebook;
3. Handmade notecard goodies from the
Paper Atelier shop.
The Rules:
1. I am fond of collecting nice quotes and I keep a written journal of those I particularly like. Post a beautiful quote - it can be from a book, a poem, a speech, a comic strip, from anywhere - on your blog and provide a linkback to this blog on your quote post;
2. A photo is nice for impact and emphasis but not required;
3. Leave a comment in the comments section of this post to indicate that you’ve joined;
4. You have until June 15, 2009 12:00 midnight (+0800 GMT) to post your quotes;
5. One winner will get all three prizes above, two runners-up will get one Life Amulets fragrance + one handmade notecards package each. I will ship within ten days of the June 15 deadline;
6. All winners will be drawn via
random.org in this order: Runner-Up No. 1, Runner Up No. 2 and Grand Prize Winner.

Here are my favorite quotes for the day:

True generosity requires more of us than kindly impulse.
Above all it requires imagination --
the capacity to see people in all their perplexities and needs,
and to know how to expend ourselves effectively for them.
~~I.A.R Wylie~~

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed.
Happiness is the spiritual experience
of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.
~~Denis Waitely~~

We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
~~Mother Teresa~~

So, what are you waiting for? Do share your favorite quote and have a chance to win those prizes.

i love the quote by Mother Theresa. we often think of ourselves as just "one" individual in a population of billions. but we have to remember that the action of "one" person can have an impact on the lives of another human being. :)

in another comparison, walang 100 pesos kung walang piso!
