25 Thoughts For The Day

25 thoughts, ideas, inspiration,

During my many travels around the Internet I always stumble across things that make me laugh, cry and think. I decided to focus on the ‘think’ aspect today, and I have compiled some of my favourites to share with you.

1. A fine is a tax for doing something wrong. A tax is a fine for doing well.

2. School teaches lessons and then gives us a test. Life gives us a test and then we learn the lessons from it.

3. Life was much simpler when Apple, Blackberry and Raspberry were just fruit.

4. There is always an element of truth behind ‘just kidding.’

5. There is always knowledge behind ‘I don’t know.’

6. There is always emotion behind ‘I don’t care.’

7. There is always pain behind ‘It’s okay.’

8. You can’t buy love, but there are times where you may pay heavily for it.

9. Money can’t buy happiness, but it is far more comfortable to cry in a Mercedes than on a bicycle.

10. Alcohol does not solve problems, but neither does milk.

11. We buy things that we don’t need, with money that we don’t have, to impress people we don’t like.

12. If you tell the truth, you never have to remember a lie.

13. If there are no ups and down in life, it means you’re dead.

14. The people with the best advice to give are usually the ones with the most problems.

15. Teenagers have the time and energy but not the money. Adults have the money and energy but not the time. Pensioners have the money and time but not the energy.

16. You can’t say M without your lips touching.

17. You’re now trying to say M without your lips touching.

18. The things that you don’t learn are the most likely things to be in the exam.

19. If undecided about two options, flip a coin. Your instinct will tell you which one you’re secretly hoping for when you feel happy or disappointed with the result.

20. The hardest thing and the right thing are often the same thing.

21. Closed minds are not often accompanied by closed mouths.

22. Fake plants will die if you don’t pretend to water them.

23. You are more likely to wake up at 6.00am on your days off.

24. The little toe is the perfect device for finding the edges of furniture in a darkened room.

25. This will cause a discussion as to whether it is ‘ironic’ or not. It isn’t.

  1. This is great. For me, a long-time favorite is: “You always have what you always have because you always do what you always do.”

  2. I’m thinking of stealing all these so I seem pithy on Twitter. Then again ending a sentence with “on Twitter” makes me seem significantly less pithy doesn’t it. This is a great list. You should do this regularly. I loved it.

  3. 19. If undecided about two options, flip a coin. Your instinct will tell you which one you’re secretly hoping for when you feel happy or disappointed with the result.x

    …I never thought of this.

  4. I heart #10. Re: saying M – stick out your tongue and give it a go.

    Enjoyed this. My favourite two quotes for your consideration:

    1. Always remember you are unique; just like everyone else.

    2. No man on his deathbed ever said, “I wish I’d spent more time at the office.”

  5. Awesome list! πŸ™‚

    Few of my favorites are:
    ‘Character is defined by what you do when no one else is looking.’
    ‘Vuja de: the feeling you’re doing it wrong all over again.’
    ‘Chocolate fixes everything.’

  7. Last week I drove past a street named “Blackberry Street.” My first thought was how odd it was to name a road after a cell phone… and then I wanted to smack myself.

  8. These are great. Most made me chuckle. However, I was stuck on #8, about love. Paying heavily for it: to get it, keep it and to get it back is what came to mind.

  9. Oh my gosh! I love these!
    I just read your list to Danny and he loved them too. Did you pull them from memes?
    Thanks for bringing this to the party! Have fun clicking on links and meeting the other guests!

  10. HI Suzie-
    Susie sent me over from the party. I love the list!! I see some bumper stickers here, especially the one about closed minds and open mouths, and how to use the coin flip in making a decision. Your list gave me some inspiration for an idea that I’ve been toying with — I think the list format will work for developing my idea.

  11. I came over from Susie’s party and love this list. Especially 16-17. (still trying)

    And with the exception of the identity crisis on the last one, of course. Great list, great post.

  13. Stopping by from Susie’s party. I absolutely LOVE your list. So dead on…well, until (like Austin pointed out) Yoda’s quote. πŸ˜‰ Seriously, though…I’ll be peeking around a bit more since I was inspired by your post to follow you.

  14. I like your list!!!! My favorite is #2 although I think we continue getting tests after we “think” we have learned the lesson…..
