25 Thoughts for the Day

imageDuring my many travels around the internet I always stumble across things that make me laugh, cry and think. While some roll their eyes at the mere mention of inspirational quotes and thoughts, I like to compile groups of them and save them on my phone as a tool to get me through the day. Here are some of my favourites…

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. What a great list, Suzie! Each with its own set of profoundness!! 🙂 🙂 I found myself saying, “Yes, right, oh that’s certainly true, to each one!! Thanks, Suzie!! Cher xo

  2. Great quotes – I really enjoyed reading them. Quite a few made me laugh – especially the thought of so many people trying to make an M without their lips touching! Presumably a ventriloquist can do it, but is it cheating?! I really like Oscar Wilde’s quotes, so I’ll leave you with…’Always borrow money from a pessimist. He won’t expect it back!’

  3. “Do or do not, there is no try” made me think of something I used to tell people when I came in #2 for a job: It’s like ‘almost’ jumping over the grand canyon. You’re just as dead whether it happens 4 feet from the start or 4 feet from the end, 🙂

    • Absolutely! I’ve had that said to me on so many occasions and it’s always made me think – ‘that thought must have been in your head for you to say it in the first place, whether you’re kidding or not.’

      • I think we can actually learn something about ourselves when we pay attention to these occurrences. Everything’s a lesson in the end. Blessings!

  4. Just “Don’t sweat the small stuff” or “Pick your battles”. Especially helpful at work and when dealing with kids. 🙂

  5. Dumbledore never said that. It was Yoda. And the guy in the picture is Gandalf from LOTR 🙂

    If at first you don’t succeed, then parachuting is not for you!
