…of life & living…

It’s been said that “Life is like a box of chocolates”

How so?

Well, they say, “you never know what you’re gonna get!”

Indeed, life can be like that!

Just living is not enough… one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower. ~Hans Christian Andersen

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, “I used everything you gave me.” ~Erma Bombeck

Forgive, O Lord, my little jokes on Thee,
And I’ll forgive Thy great big one on me.
~Robert Frost, “Cluster of Faith,” 1962

In spite of the cost of living, it’s still popular. ~Kathy Norris

Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can. ~Danny Kaye

Life… is like a box of chocolates — a cheap, thoughtless, perfunctory gift that no one ever asks for, unreturnable because all you get back is another box of chocolates. So, you’re stuck with mostly undefinable whipped mint crap, mindlessly wolfed down when there’s nothing else to eat while you’re watching the game. Sure, once is a while you get a peanut butter cup or an English toffee but it’s gone too fast and the taste is fleeting. In the end, you are left with nothing but broken bits filled with hardened jelly and teeth-shattering nuts, which, if you are desperate enough to eat, leaves nothing but an empty box of useless brown paper. ~The X-Files

‘Tis all a chequer board of nights and days,
Where destiny with men for pieces plays;
Hither and thither, and mates, and slays.
~Edward Fitzgerald, The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyám, 1859

Life is not a final. It’s daily pop quizzes. ~Author Unknown

The philosophy of mine earth can be summed as this: Sunshine creates happiness, and I create myself. Nights are long and life is predominantly good. Wind is refreshing. Tea is wisdom. Do the best you can, and be good to yourself so that you can above all be good to others. ~Jessi Lane Adams

Give us Lord, a bit o’ sun,
A bit o’ work and a bit o’ fun;
Give us all in the struggle and sputter
Our daily bread and a bit o’ butter.
~From an inn in Lancaster, England

Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one. ~Dr. Seuss

Cheers to a good & fun, thrilling Thursday that sings–thriving!
