So true!

About 20 year ago, my husband thought telephone headsets would be a great invention. Of course that's as far as it went.....an idea. Just think had he pursued it.

well, here is my take on AMAmanda's:

life is like a camel cigarette... short.

Don't waste time or energy on the pain
spend it on the joy that surrounds you.
It takes more energy to be sad than it does
to be happy.

Here is one of mine:

here is one I found in someone's sig file at phpbb.com:

"If a man stands in a forest speaking and there's no woman there to hear him...
is he still wrong?"

quotes

Postby Rasby » Fri Nov 14, 2008 3:40 pm

I have a little book of quotes I have collected over the years that I keep on my desk so when I get discouraged, I can flip open to some motivational words.

I got these from a book I read years ago called: On a Clear Day, You Can See Yourself

1. No one can bring your life to you.
2. No matter what you do, someone important to you isn't going to like it.
3. Though it is painful, rejection won't kill you and it may even lead to growth.
4. Every choice means giving up something else.
5. Some people are not capable of giving you what you are trying to get from them.
6. The way you treat yourself sets the standard for the way others treat you.
7. There are no quick fixes that can permanently change your life.
8. Life is on a rheostat, not an on/off switch.
9. Some problems cannot be solved, but you can make peace with them.

The next one is from George Elliot:

It's never too late to be what you might have been.

boy, number 5 sure hit hard.
yesterday was my ex's birthday. I have not seen or talked to her in years but I thought about her yesterday.
Maybe if I had thought of number 5 back then, it would have been easier to get over her.
