Quips and Quotes

My favourite quote of all time:  I believe that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but ultimately we are responsible for who we become.   Unknown

 

Some things I’ve said….

“Life gets alot easier once you accept stupidity as the norm.” 

“Birthdays are like Mother In Laws, you’re lucky to have one but you don’t appreciate it.”

“Winter colds and flu are like the season itself, you can’t ignore them, but it’s worth a shot.”

“I’d gladly walk around in public with my hubby’s hand permanently attached to my butt, unfortunately he’s a boob man so it just wouldn’t be as publicly correct.”

A quote from my friend Jimena on the topic of parenthood “I know that I’m getting payback, but why do I feel like I’m paying double?”

“Nothing says Canada like the sound of snowblowers, and the smell of Tim Hortons coffee, first thing in the morning.”

“The only thing seperating good and evil is perspective.”

  1. Oh, dear wise one. I am here to save you from the 666. For reals. See? Commenting right here. And, btw “Life gets alot easier once you accept stupidity as the norm.” <—-TRUTH. I will pop back over here with my own words of wisdom which most decidedly are less wisdomous than yours. But I feel the need to share.

  2. Here are two things I say to my students. Frequently.
    1. I really want to follow your train of thought…but I think I need ticket.
    2. Forget about being in left field; you are so far off, you don’t even know where the field is!
    And just for life:
    If you don’t like the way the path winds, make you’re way to a better one.
