Quotes…

  • You grow up the day you have the first real laugh at yourself. – Ethel Barrymore
  • There’s an old joke. Two elderly women are at a Catskills mountain resort, and one of them says: “Boy, the food at this place is really terrible.” The other one says, “Yeah, I know, and such small portions.” Well, that’s essentially how I feel about life. Full of loneliness and misery and suffering and unhappiness, and it’s all over much too quickly. – from the movie Annie Hall (1977)
  • Life is a journey from Allah to Allah. – Anon
  • The world is changed by your example, not your opinion. – Paul Coelho
  • Never look down on someone unless you are helping them up. – Anon
  • You cannot make everybody happy. You are not a Nutella jar. – Anon
  • This guy goes to a psychiatrist and says, “Doc, my brother’s crazy. He thinks he’s a chicken.” And the doctor says, “Well, why don’t you turn him in?” And the guy says, “I would, but I need the eggs.” Well, I guess that’s pretty much how I feel about relationships. You know, they’re totally irrational and crazy and absurd but I guess we keep going through it because most of us need the eggs. – from the movie Annie Hall (1977)
  • The more you love your decisions, the less you need others to love them. – Anon

One thought on “Quotes and links

  1. I received a really nice email from Amy Kiley (amy@homeschoolingadventures.com), a volunteer at a community center with an after school program for kids. Amy shared and used some of the quotes in this blog post (many thanks Amy!). Amy told me of one of her girls, Tina, who is going through a tough time, and that she wanted me to share a link to an article about dealing with loneliness amongst the elderly, which I am more than happy to do:

    http://www.parentgiving.com/elder-care/combat-loneliness-in-elders/

    It’s well worth a read because we all know someone who is elderly and, God willing, we all hope to be one day (assuming we’re not already!).

    Many thanks again to Amy and Tina…
