Just Some Thoughts

As a kid, I’d fill pages of diaries with quotes that made me stop for a while and think about life. This page is the virtual counterpart of those dairies.

# Childhood ends when you find out there are no monsters in your closet and that they are really walking the streets.

# Some days we are the flies; some days we are the windscreens.
# Forgive, O Lord, my little jokes on Thee. And I’ll forgive Thy great big one on me.
# The evening knows what the morning never expected.
# Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why it is called the present.
# The woods are lovely dark and deep / But I have promises to keep / And miles and miles to go before I sleep / and miles and miles to go before I sleep.
# God cannot be everywhere, so He created Mothers.
# Growing older is no excuse for growing up.
# No one is perfect, that’s why pencils have erasers.
# Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less travelled , And that has made all the difference.
# When you play it too safe, you’re taking the biggest risk of your life.
# Problems can either be considered as stumbling blocks or stepping stones.
# The devil is not as dark as we paint it.
# Life is a foreign language: all men mispronounce it.
# Living is like licking honey off a thorn.
# When a resolute young fellow steps up to the great bully, the world, and takes him boldly by the beard, he is often surprised to find it comes off in his hand, and that it was only tied on to scare away the timid adventurers.
# Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers simple.
# It’s not denial. I’m just selective about the reality I accept.
# Faults are thick where love is thin.
# Day by day, nothing seems to change. But pretty soon, everything´s different.
# You know what the best thing about pain is? It tells you you’re not dead yet!
# You can catch more flies with honey that vinegar. ( Referring to the importance of politeness)
# Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.
# It is better to wear out than to rust out.
# Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.
# Whether you think you can, or you can’t, you are right.
# Problem with old age is that you know all the answers but no one asks you the questions.
# “Most of us miss out on life’s big prizes. The Pulitzer. The Nobel. Oscars. Tonys. Emmys. But we’re all eligible for life’s small pleasures. A pat on the back. A kiss behind the ear. A four-pound bass. A full moon. An empty parking space. A crackling fire. A great meal. A glorious sunset. Hot soup. Cold beer. Don’t fret about copping life’s grand awards. Enjoy its tiny delights. There are plenty for all of us.”
# Everyone wants to save the world but no one wants to do the dishes with mum after dinner.
