INSPIRATION COMES FROM EVERYWHERE

I HAVE LATELY BEEN FEELING AS THOUGH I WAS GETTING NOWHERE FAST; AS IF I WERE TREADING WATER. I DON’T FEEL LIKE GIVING UP. THAT WOULD MEAN SINKING. BUT, I FEEL A STRONG SENSE OF FRUSTRATION ALONG WITH MY DETERMINATION.

THESE QUOTES REALLY FIT MY LIFE PHILOSOPHY.

March on. Do not tarry. To go forward is to move toward
perfection. March on, and fear not the thorns, or the sharp
stones on life’s path.
Kahlil Gibran, 1883 – 1931)

Every day that is born into the world comes like a burst
of music and rings the whole day through, and you make of it
a dance, a dirge, or a life march, as you will.
Thomas Carlyle, 1795 – 1881

Don’t ever become a pessimist … A pessimist is correct
oftener than an optimist, but an optimist has more fun – and
neither can stop the march of events.
Robert A. Heinlein, 1907 – 1988

This, then, is the test we must set for ourselves; not to
march alone but to march in such a way that others will wish to join us.
Hubert H. Humphrey, 1911 – 1978

The truth is on the march and nothing will stop it.
Emile Zola, 1840 – 1902

The human race is a race of cowards; and I am not only
marching in that procession but carrying a banner.
Mark Twain, 1835 – 1910

PARENTING

Be nice to your kids. They’ll choose your nursing home.

Never lend your car to anyone to whom you have given birth.

Giving birth is little more than a set of muscular contractions granting passage of a child. Then the mother is born.

Graduation day is tough for adults. They go to the ceremony as parents. They come home as contemporaries. After twenty-two years of child-rearing, they are unemployed.

I’m going to stop punishing my children by saying, “Never mind! I’ll do it myself.”

It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
– All from Erma Louise Bombeck, 1927 – 1996

BREAKFAST IS SERVED

All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast.
– John Gunther

My wife and I tried to breakfast together, but we had to stop or our marriage would have been wrecked.
– Winston Churchill, 1874 – 1965

There are two spiritual dangers in not owning a farm. One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace.
– Aldo Leopold, 1887 – 1948

Oh yes, there is a vast difference between the savage and the civilized man, but it is never apparent to their wives until after breakfast.
– Helen Rowland, 1875 – 1950

It takes some skill to spoil a breakfast – even the English can’t do it.
– John Kenneth Galbraith
