Friday Quotables*

This morning's subtle, yet crystal clear reminder about life, courtesy of my Quickbooks program:

"You can't print blank checks."
Yeah, no shit. Thanks...

Words to live by, from country singer Gary Allan:

"Life ain't always beautiful, but it's a beautiful ride."

Truer words? I can't remember any.

Calvin Coolidge:

"If you see ten troubles coming down the road, you can be sure that
nine will run into the ditch before they reach you."
Oh, how I pray for those ditches.

Symbolism, courtesy of the Missouri Department of Transportation:
"Construction next 20 miles."

Then I glance at the thermometer - 101 degrees. Ain't that always the way it is?

Roman philosopher Lucius Annaeus Seneca:

“I persist on praising not the life I lead, but that which I
ought to lead. I follow it at a mighty distance, crawling.”

Here, here.

Have a nice day!

*These may help you through the weekend, or at least give you
something to ponder. Sheesh! The things I do for you!

My favorite quote: "I'm a pretty big deal around here. People know me."

Name the movie, Dave! You should know it!

My second favorite quote: "Your mom goes to college."

Why are all my favorite quotes from movies? Oh, well...

How about:

"You don't see many dead cats in trees. Eventually you'll figure it out."

You're a good man, Charlie Brown.


(Your mom goes to college? Napoleon Dynamite~)

"Malen Sie nicht den Teufel auf der wand."

Words to live by...even if you're NOT German.
