Facebook Cover Timeline by Holley Jacobs
This is a Facebook Timeline cover I designed with digital art I created of Marilyn Monroe.

Marilyn Monroe is one of my idols! Her birthday is June 1st. Born in 1926, she would be turning 90 years old in a few weeks. I wanted to celebrate her life which was tragically cut short. I have included 19 pictures of Marilyn Monroe with quotes added from Dazzle Junction. I have also included 19 unique and exciting facts that you might not know about Marilyn Monroe.

  • Although Marilyn Monroe was typecast as a dumb blond (a persona she hated), she was very intelligence with an IQ of 168.

2. My Daughter Butterfly Wood Finish Jewelry Music Box Plays Tune You Are My Sunshine

A mother’s love determines how
We love ourselves and others.
There is no sky we’ll ever see
Not lit by that first love.
Stripped of love, the universe
Would drive us mad with pain;
But we are born into a world
That greets our cries with joy.

How much I owe you for the kiss
That told me who I was!
The greatest gift–a love of life–
Lay laughing in your eyes.

Because of you, my world still has
The soft grace of your smile;
And every wind of fortune bears
The scent of your caress.

The 25 Man Rules

Seven years ago, I joined Facebook. One of the first things shared with me were “The Man Rules” by an old friend from high school. I found it so funny, I have kept a copy of it ever since. I thought the guys may get a kick out of the man rules and we, as women, will let you have your say; however, that doesn’t mean you are right, LOL!! I hope you enjoy the 25 Man Rules:

We always hear “the rules” from the female side. Now here are the rules from the male side.

Please note that they are all numbered 1. We did this ON PURPOSE!

 

The Man Rules

 

  1. Men are NOT mind readers.

 

  1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You’re a big girl. If it’s up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don’t hear us complaining about you leaving it down.

 

the man rules sports

 

  1. Sunday sports – It’s like the full moon or the changing or the tides. Let it be.

 

  1. Crying is blackmail.

 

  1. Ask for you what you want. Let us be clear on this one: Subtle hints do not work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do not work! Just say it!

 

YES OR NO THE MAN RULES

 

  1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.

 

  1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That’s what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

 

  1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 days.

 

  1. If you think you’re fat, you probably are. Don’t ask us.

36 Motivational Inspiring Quotes About Success

Goals Vision and Success

We all need a reminder now and then of how valuable we are as a person, a colleague, a partner, a mother, a friend, or a father. This is a list of quotes that I keep close to me at all times in my Google Keep note taker. I love Google Keep as it offers an app for your computer, phone, and an extension in Chrome that easily sync with one another. It is the best and most convenient note taker I have found. When thoughts pop into my head or I find quotes that touch me, it is so easy to “jot” them down in Google Keep as well as having access to my notes for whenever I need them.

Quotes are one of my passions. I have a blog where I showcase other people’s quotes that I have collected over the years and now share on Tumblr. I also have another blog – Quotes Are My Passion where I share some of my own quoted designs that can be purchased in various formats on my Donation Art Website. I donate all of proceeds from sales on this site to nonprofit organizations that fight for Autism Acceptance and against Domestic Violence. I also have a Quotes Are My Passion Facebook Page where you can find different quotes I have designed. So, please check out all four places.

I love quotes so much, they truly are a passion and labor of love. I especially love quotes by unknown authors. I can’t really explain the fascination with quotes by unknown authors other than to state; these quotes leave a door to interpret their true meaning up to the reader. We all know famous quotes by famous people but we tend to, at times, equate the meaning of their quotes to their known personalities. For me, reading quotes by unknown authors allows my creativity to flow as I place meaning on each quote in such a way that I feel best describes their interpretation.

So I give you some of my favorite motivational quotes about being successful that are written by unknown authors. Enjoy!

My hope is that you will find some satisfaction in your life and be inspired enough to tweet and/or re-blog some of my favorite quotes by unknown authors. I have been collecting unknown quotes for years but this is the first time that I have shared any of my collection anywhere online. That makes this post especially personal to me as I am making myself vulnerable, however, sharing them with others is more satisfying at this point.
