In the mail from my mother this week — a page torn from Woman’s Day magazine with inspirational quotes. My favorite? It’s a tie between these two:

As long as you’re going to be thinking anyway, think big.
–Donald Trump

How wrong it is for a woman to expect the man to build the world she wants, rather than to create it herself.
–Anais Nin

Also in the envelope? Coupons for chicken broth, shampoo and Splenda.

Gotta love Mom.
