    Fun Quotes

    "My aim is to keep this bathroom clean.

    Your aim would help."

    "Nobody listens to me,"

    until I fart

    "I Love You More Today

    Than Yesterday.

    Yesterday You Really Pissed Me Off."

    "If at first you don’t succeed, do it like your mother told you."

    I have a lengthy writing written in 1927, that really helped me keep focused on how to live life.

    DESIDERATA

    Go placidly amidst the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.

    As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.

    Speak your truth quietly and clearly, and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.

    Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexatious to the spirit.

    If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for there will always be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

    Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

    Keep interested in your career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

    Exercise caution in your business affairs for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.

    Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.

    Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

    Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

    Beyond a wholesome discipline be gentle with yourself.

    You are a child of the universe; no less than the trees and the stars, you have the right to be here.

    And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

    Therefore be at peace with God whatever you conceive Him to be.

    And whatever your labors and aspirations in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace with your soul.

    With all its sham drudgery and broken dreams it is still a beautiful world.

    Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

    Attributed to Max Ehrmann 1927

    "The mountain may be high

    In myself I must believe

    For I know I can fly high

    Therefore, I shall not grieve"

    I wrote this quote because I can relate to it. All of my life I keep having to climb high mountains. I am always told that I may not be able to climb some mountains. But, with determination and strength I always manage to make it to the top because I never listen to those who say I can't.

    To me, life' obstacles are like high mountains. At the beginning, they may seem quite high but once you take the first step, it is always guaranteed that you'll make it to the top as long as you believe in yourself.

    Every time I find myself facing a very high mountain. I close my eyes and repeat this quote gently and with hope in my heart. Soon, I am on top of that mountain, looking down with the biggest smile on my face. Because, I don't like to give up on myself.

    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    1Corinthians 13 4:7
