I know this quote isn’t specifically about Fridays, it’s just how I feel everyday leading up to Friday. Then, I bound out of bed, happy to face the day and ready for Saturday! TGIF, Friends! 🙂 My son complains about headaches. I tell him all the time, when you get out of bed, it’s feet…

Quote of the Day – Daniel Kahneman on Quotes

Wow. I’ve been doing a quote every day for about 3 years and only 6 months on this site. It’s true, you can find a quote for about any day, any moment, and any situation. Still, it doesn’t make the words even less profound. You can always find an evolutionary quotation for anything. But the…

Quote of the Day – Marilyn Monroe on Fate

There’s a weird resurgence of Marilyn Monroe as of late. I’m surprised she’s become popular again. Other things that are surprising to me? The many layers of her character.

Quote of the Day – Viktor Frankl on Life’s Meaning

I read a really significant book by Viktor E. Frankl called “Man’s Search for Meaning.” This book, which came to me on suggestion of a friend, was something I had to read twice to really get its full meaning. You should consider picking it up. For the meaning of life differs from man to man,…

Quote of the Day – William Saroyan on Giving Your All

Today is going to be a long, hot day in Portland, Oregon. Try as I might, I cannot shake my case of the “sleeps.” But, we press on, still giving 100% and smiling the whole way. Remember, naps are cheating. 🙂 Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and…
