Thursday 13 v. 51 - The Chocolate Quote One

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
13 Inspirational Sayings Courtesy of Dove Chocolates
It's a hard job, but someone has to do it. I ate 13 pieces of Dove dark chocolate (not all in one sitting) to bring you these quotes (on the inside of the wrappers). And yes, I ate 13 pieces of chocolate before getting a repeat quote.
  1. If they can do it, you know you can.
  2. Make "someday" today
  3. Discover yourself
  4. Love without rules
  5. Naughty can be nice
  6. Keep the promises you make to yourself
  7. When 2 hearts race, both win
  8. Follow your instincts
  9. Count the stars
  10. Age is nothing but a number
  11. Live your dreams
  12. Watch reruns. They replay your memories
  13. Smile, people will wonder what you've been up to.

Chocolate with quotes, what a great combo. I am really having a tough time with jet lag. I thought you were posting a few days late. I can't believe it's Wednesday already.

Lazy Daisy said...

You are so my hero....the sacrifices you make for your readership is amazing! I did like the watching reruns quote especially.

Katherine said...

HA! Are they supposed to funny? They're so cheesy they are, especially the one about the 2 hearts racing--I love it. That said, I must confess that my wedding favors were a little box of Italian chocolate-hazelnut candies called "Baci." Baci, of course, means "kis" in Italian, and when you unwrapped each one it had a saying about love. Although I swear they weren't as cheesy as Dove's! :)

Julia said...

Oh I love these quotes! And I don't think I have yet discover quotes inside chocolate wrappers...which I find is really neat thing :) Now you are making me craves for some chocolates ;)

Happy T13 - and have good day!

Shelli Stevens said...

I love those! Especially #2. Make 'someday' today. :) So true!

Candy Minx said...

I really think these quotes inside the Dove are such a cool idea. We don't have Dove chocolate in Canada and when I'm in Chicago...it's the best chocolate I find here in the corner stores, love the quotes too and watching a tv show like Greys Anatomy and eating chocolate-perfect!

kailani said...

I use those quotes as as excuse to eat more chocolates. I'm always saying, "Wait, I want to read just one more quote!"

Bone said...

Haha. This reminds me of the slogans on my Mitchum anti-perspirant.

If you're socks almost match, you're a Mitchum Man.

If your ratio of lighter fluid to charcoal is 2:1, you're a Mitchum Man.

If you still think you could have gone pro, you're a Mitchum Man.

They're sort of inspirational, in an Al Bundy sort of way :)

Ingrid said...

:) :) very enlightening list!!! great TT list for this week! i had fun reading!

Sparky Duck said...

I must say, naughty can be really really nice.

christine said...

I could eat 13 pieces of chocolate in one sitting. Love your idea for a TT this week.

I'm all about words that begin with the letter z.

Haley-O said...

It's so good of you to do such great research for the TT! That was hard work, huh? ;) Mmmm...chocolate! (sorry I'm a day late!)
