QOTD: If dogs could talk…

If dogs could talk, perhaps we would find it as hard to get along with them as we do with people. — Josef Capek It’s true. I think one of the main reasons we like dogs, as they’re deep listeners and they love without judgement.

Quote of the day – Lewis Carroll on laughter and wit

While the laughter of joy is in full harmony with our deeper life, the laughter of amusement should be kept apart from it. The danger is too great of thus learning to look at solemn things in a spirit of mockery, and to seek in them opportunities for exercising wit. – Lewis Carroll

Quote of the Day – Charles Schulz on Knowing the Answer

Today’s quote is a little jab at humor. Thanks Charles Schulz for giving us a moment of levity. Today’s grind is such that we might miss a few things throughout the day. So, when the answer hits you, take a moment and declare it. 🙂 I know the answer! The answer lies within the heart…

Quote of the Day – Ashleigh Brilliant on Hitting Your Mark

Today’s quote, a little levity for Friday. Sometimes, when we’re in the thick of this thing called life, we forget to laugh a little.

Quote of the Day – Kahlil Gibran on Friendship

I’m a big fan of Mr. Gibran, his words soothed a really rough patch in my life. I still go back and read some of his passages when I need a little extra “oophf.” I’d quote him everyday, but, you’d get bored. 🙂 In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of…

Quote of the Day – Judith Viorst on Friendship and Laughter

I met some new friends yesterday, or rather, I met them in person. It’s amazing to me, something so simple as connecting with others can bring so much joy to your day. Yesterday, I got to connect with people I met on the internet, yet, it felt like I’d known them for years. Fast-friendship, made…

Quote of the Day – Samuel Johnson on Anticipation

This quote reminded me that there’s always something coming or going. Just depends on which end you’re looking at. I’m a very anticipatory person, I constantly over-engineer/over-process things. I’m analytical by nature. I can’t help it. No mind is much employed upon the present: Recollection and anticipation fill up almost all our moments. – Samuel…

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…

Quote of the Day – Erma Bombeck on Mothers

It’s Mother’s day around here and while I’m lucky to have my mother, I’m keenly aware of those who have lost theirs. So, in that, I wish all mother’s out there, with us and no longer, a happy mother’s day. May your day be filled with love and laughter. When mothers talk about the depression…
