Quotes of the Day
If you don’t learn to laugh at trouble, you won’t have
anything to laugh at when you’re old. EDGAR WATSON HOWE
Laugh my friend, for laughter ignites a fire
within the pit of your belly and awakens your being. STELLA MCCARTNEY
Power, money, persuasion, supplication, persecution—these can lift at
a colossal humbug—push it a little—weaken it a little, century by century,
but only laughter can blow it to rags and atoms at a blast. Against the
assault of laughter nothing can stand. MARK TWAIN
If you can laugh in the face of adversity, you’re bullet-proof.
Always laugh when you can. It is cheap medicine.
Trouble knocked at the door, but, hearing laughter, hurried away.
The person who has a sense of humor is not just more relaxed in
the face of a potentially stressful situation, but is more flexible in his approach.
I have always felt that laughter in the face of reality is probably the finest
sound there is and will last until the day when the game is called on account
of darkness. In this world, a good time to laugh is any time you can.
I never would have made it if I could not have laughed. It lifted me
momentarily out of this horrible situation, just enough to make it livable.
Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes….
My job is in the Aerospace Industry, and it’s always been a challenge to explain just what kind of work I do. At one gathering, I tried several unsuccessful attempted explanations before deciding to be as generic as possible. When the subject came up while I was talking with a group of guys, I replied simply, “Defense Contractor.” The men nodded, and as the conversation went on, I silently declared victory to myself. Then, one of them turned to me and asked, “So, what do you put up mainly? Chain-link?”😳😁😎
Tuesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? ”
“Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears. I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him. The evil that
men do lives after them. The good is oft interred with their bones. So let it be with Caesar.”
Answer: ‘Julius Caesar’
Mark Antony, one of Julius Caesar’s friends and supporters, had accompanied him as he went to the senate on that fateful Ides of March. After the assassination, he cradled his friend’s body in his arms, according to Shakespeare. Brutus (played by James Mason) and Cassius (played by John Gielgud) were among those who assassinated Caesar, fearing that he was becoming too powerful, and might abuse that power to the detriment of the state. At least, that was the story used to convince Brutus, Caesar’s friend, to join them. Following the assassination on the floor of the Senate, Brutus makes an impassioned speech to convince the people of Rome that it was for their benefit. If he hadn’t been such a nice guy and let Mark Antony make a speech as well, things might have settled down. As it was, the conspirators were forced to flee the city, and join battle against the forces led by Mark Antony, Octavian and Lepidus, leading to their defeat at Philippi, and subsequent deaths. While Mark Antony makes what is possibly the most famous speech in the movie, the central character is actually Brutus, and his struggle to reconcile the demands of friendship, honor and duty.
Wednesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from???
“… I could shoot all the blue jays I wanted, if I could hit ’em, but to remember it was a sin to kill a mockingbird…Well, I reckon because mockingbirds don’t do anything but make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat people’s gardens, don’t nest in the corncribs, they don’t do one thing but just sing their hearts out for us.”
