Recommended Posts

This is a thread for members who enjoy quotations, inspiring words, affirmations, naughty giggles, poetry and the like from established authors, poets, philosophers, etc. Post your favorites. 

The  intention is to lift, inspire and make those in need of encouragement either feel good about themselves, keep motivated, or just plain laugh. We need some light hearted fun around here..

If you don't like a quote, ignore it and move on...this isn't a place for debate or ridicule. Post one that you do like and agree with. Hope everyone will post and join in the fun.

This isn't a 'light-hearted one' but one I got to anytime I'm sad:

"It is said an Eastern monarch once charged his wise men to invent him a sentence, to be ever in view, and which should be true and appropriate in all times and situations. They presented him the words: "And this, too, shall pass away." How much it expresses! How chastening in the hour of pride! How consoling in the depths of affliction! "

"Just because you find that life's not fair, it
Doesn't mean that you just have to grin and bear it.
If you always take it on the chin and wear it,
You might as well be saying you think that it's OK.
And that's not right.
And if it's not right, you have to put it right.

But nobody else is gonna put it right for me.
Nobody but me is gonna change my story.
Sometimes you have to be a little bit naughty"

from the musical Matilda

Something related to my lifestyle and it's so true...

It's not a role.

It's not a game.

It's not something you try.

It's not an item on your bucket list.

True submission is who you are.

(Cool cool speaking of Teddy Roosevelt:)

The Man In The Arena

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

I can never get enough of the wisdom and humor of Oscar Wilde: 

"Be yourself; everyone else is already taken."

"Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much." 

"A good friend will always stab you in the front." 

"We are all in the gutter; but some of us are looking at the stars."

"Never love anyone who treats you like you're ordinary." 

"I don't want to go to heaven. None of my friends are there."

"I can resist anything except temptation."

:D

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart.

The problem with this one is just a basic question of biology, dearest shy...does the heart muscle have the ability to feel anything??  I am not sure if our beating hearts have the sense of touch.  I can feel my heart beating in my chest (sometimes) but does that mean my heart can feel itself beat within my chest?   Hmmm, quite the brain teaser. ????

AG, if you can't feel something in your heart then you are heartless!!!

PS...this is not disagree with Shy day, you should know better!!

Oh!! I know!! It's good entertainment!!

And on a more serious note one of my favs 

The Bible shows the way to go to heaven, not the way the heavens go. Galileo Galilei
 

Although he was supposedly quoting a private conversation with a Cardinal...no...not the ones in st Louis,  the ones in the pointy hats

But your heart doesn't feel anything, it's just a pumping organ.  You might feel it if you have a heart attack, but you would be feeling it, not your heart.
