SOME THINGS I WISH I'D SAID



Robert Brault writes a blog [LINK] entirely composed of his quotes.  I think he's very clever & I've even stolen used a few--I always give him credit!!  Below is a small sampling:



"I look back on the time I've wasted, and I'm just glad I wasted it while I still had the chance."

A rule I try to follow is this: "Never believe anything that requires you to hate people who do not believe it." 

"After years of buying clothes I intend to diet into, I'll say this -- the skeleton in my closet has some really nice outfits."

"I don't think that life begins until you go looking for trouble, and happiness is ending up with the trouble you went looking for."

"There's always a new chapter in life. You ride off into the sunset and discover it's the sunrise."

"Life is a series of choices, all made at too young an age."

A message to someone: "I know you're still alive because you never call and you never write, which is just like you."

"Life is a series of tasks that absolutely must get done before they don't matter."

"Be happy, and a reason will come along."

"In the end there doesn't have to be anyone who understands you. There just has to be someone who wants to."

"There's never enough time to do what you've always wanted to do -- and never enough time not to."

"Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things."

"Say what you want about aging, it's still the only way to have old friends."

"An old body is like an old building. Eventually its only reason for being is the employment of the maintenance staff."

"I complain of the passing years, but then I look in a mirror and realize that very few of them actually got past."

"Doesn't seem fair that a greedy few should have all the wealth when the rest of us are just as greedy."

"The more we scan the universe, the more it seems that God either created planet Earth or it's the only thing He didn't create."

"If you want my advice, here it is: Seek out someone who wants to make you happy and let them."

"The great thing about the internet is that you get to meet people you would otherwise only meet if you were committed to the same asylum."

"One difference between a dog and a person is that when you earn a dog's love, you get it."


"The trick to being happy is to stop putting it off until such time as you can be happier."

And some quotes by others:


“It is better to remain silent at the risk of being thought a fool, than to talk and remove all doubt of it.” --Maurice Switzer

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.” --Mark Twain

“When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You know that your name is safe in their mouth.” -- Jess C. Scott, The Intern

“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.” --Socrates

“The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.”--Isaac Asimov 

“May you live every day of your life.” --Jonathan Swift

“The only way to get through life is to laugh your way through it. You either have to laugh or cry. I prefer to laugh. Crying gives me a headache.” --Marjorie Pay Hinckley

“Any fool can know. The point is to understand.” --Albert Einstein

And some (to me, anyway) equally brilliant quotes:


“Love is what you make it. Unfortunately, I can’t make it today, as I have a doctor’s appointment.” --Jarod Kintz, This Book is Not for Sale

“Slap-stick comedy is really funny, unless you're the one getting slapped with the stick.” --Carroll Bryant

"If your diet soda has zero calories, zero sugar and zero fat, what the hell are you drinking?” --Regina Griffin

"If MapQuest says make a right, go straight. You'll get there quicker.” --Regina Griffin

“Of all the things I dislike, I dislike my dislike of things, but I like that I dislike that.” --Stuart Blythe

“Whenever I'm running an hour late for work, it always makes me feel better when I can leave an hour early at the end of the day to make up for it.” --Mark W. Boyer

“I've decided I don't like books that end with 'The End'. The fact that there are no more pages, suggests to me that the book has ended.” --Wayne Gerard Trotman

Ah, yes, divorce, from the Latin word meaning to rip out a man's genitals through his wallet. --Robin Williams

Women complain about premenstrual syndrome, but I think of it as the only time of the month that I can be myself.--Roseanne Barr


If you can't beat them, arrange to have them beaten. --George Carlin

The problem with the designated driver program, it's not a desirable job. But if you ever get sucked into doing it, have fun with it. At the end of the night, drop them off at the wrong house. --Jeff Foxworthy

See, the problem is that God gives men a brain and a penis, and only enough blood to run one at a time. --Robin Williams  

“Intelligent life on other planets? I'm not even sure there is on earth!” --Albert Einstein










HAPPY ST. PAT'S DAY!!!

“If you're reading this...congratulations, you're alive.  If that's not something to smile about, then I don't know what is.” ----Chad Sugg, (& fishducky)

  5. Dear Fishducky, you truly have amassed a library of wise quotations. They all spoke to me, but the following spoke loudest: "A rule I try to follow is this: 'Never believe anything that requires you to hate people who do not believe it.'" What a different world we'd live in if we all followed that rule. I hope all is well in your life and that your recuperation is moving along smoothly. Peace.
