Friday Quotables

My favorite quotes this week:


"I have never know any distress that an hour's reading did not relieve."

by Benjamin Jowett



*******

From the always irreverent GLEE :

"Dolphins are just gay sharks."

********

From my five-year-old (while watching a commercial with animals tricking people),

"Look at those stupid HUMANS..."

!?!?!?
********

"You can discover what your enemy fears most by observing the means he uses to frighten you."

by Eric Hoffer


**********


Why always "not yet"? Do flowers in spring say "not yet"?

by Norman Douglas



HAVE A spring-inspired WEEKEND!

I love the Glee quote. I made my husband rewind the DVR five times to laugh at it Tuesday night while we watched. I want it on a Tshirt!

Dolphins are gay sharks?? So funny! I am wondering if the seat on THAT bike is comfy. Mine...is not.

NGS said...

The first quote is totally true. If I ever feel like crying, screaming, or just being a brat, I just read for a bit. Everything goes away.

I rode my bike to work today! Yay spring!!

Busted up when I heard that quote on Glee. Love the last quote about not yet and spring. I keep wanting to say not yet to things, but I think I need to start saying - yes, now. Hope you have a springy weekend too.
