Quote of the Day
Family means no one gets left behind or forgotten.
David Ogden Stiers
Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.
I must learn to love the fool in me - the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries.
Theodore Isaac Rubin
Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense.
It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
Harry S Truman
Someone told me the smile on my face gets bigger when I play the guitar.
I can take it. The tougher it gets, the cooler I get.
Richard M. Nixon
Frisbeetarianism is the belief that when you die, your soul goes up on the roof and gets stuck.
My first real kiss came when I was 10, and it was in an acting class. I had to do a scene from a movie where someone gets kissed under a tree, and I did not want to do it! But my acting partner wanted me to feel comfortable, so he bought a picnic basket with all these snacks. He made such an effort - and it was cute.
When a train goes through a tunnel and it gets dark, you don't throw away the ticket and jump off. You sit still and trust the engineer.
Corrie Ten Boom
I love summertime more than anything else in the world. That is the only thing that gets me through the winter, knowing that summer is going to be there.
Things don't just happen in this world of arising and passing away. We don't live in some kind of crazy, accidental universe. Things happen according to certain laws, laws of nature. Laws such as the law of karma, which teaches us that as a certain seed gets planted, so will that fruit be.
The key is just to ignore the pain, because physical comedy only works if you see someone get hurt and they aren't actually hurt. If someone gets hit in the face with a bat, falls down, and gets back up, it's funny. If they stay down and their jaw is wired shut in the next scene, it's really tragic and weird. You have to pretend it doesn't hurt.
For me, singing sad songs often has a way of healing a situation. It gets the hurt out in the open into the light, out of the darkness.
Nobody gets to live life backward. Look ahead, that is where your future lies.
Everyone gets dumped and everyone gets hurt and there's karma to love in regards to what you've done to other people.
Marina and the Diamonds
A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down.
Arnold H. Glasow
The way to get things done is not to mind who gets the credit for doing them.
Perhaps the saddest irony of depression is that suicide happens when the patient gets a little better and can again function sufficiently.
It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.
The distance between number one and number two is always a constant. If you want to improve the organization, you have to improve yourself and the organization gets pulled up with you. That is a big lesson. I cannot just expect the organization to improve if I don't improve myself and lift the organization, because that distance is a constant.
What's money? A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do.
A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.
Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen.
With ideas it is like with dizzy heights you climb: At first they cause you discomfort and you are anxious to get down, distrustful of your own powers; but soon the remoteness of the turmoil of life and the inspiring influence of the altitude calm your blood; your step gets firm and sure and you begin to look - for dizzier heights.
