q u o t e s o f t h e d a y
Never follow anyone else’s path. Unless you’re in the woods and
you’re lost and you see a path. Then by all means follow that path.”
“Insomnia sharpens your math skills because you spend all night
calculating how much sleep you’ll get if you’re able to ‘fall asleep right now.’”
“Breaking up is like knocking over a Coke machine. You can’t do it in
one push; you got to rock it back and forth a few times, and then it goes over.”
—Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld), Seinfeld
Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
I have been in many places, but I’ve never been in Cahoots. Apparently, you can’t go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone.
I’ve also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.
I have, however, been in Sane. They don’t have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my children, friends, family and work.
I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I’m not too much on physical activity anymore.
I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go and I try not to visit there too often.
I’ve been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.
Sometimes I’m in Capable, and I go there more often as I’m getting older.
One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenaline flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the stimuli I can get!
I may have been in Continent, but I don’t remember what country I was in. It’s an age thing. They tell me it is very wet and damp there. 😳
Tuesdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“What happened to the warriors at Thermopylae?”
“Dead to the last man.”
Answer: The Last Samurai!
In the events leading up to this scene, decorated army hero Captain Nathan Algren (Tom Cruise) is hired in 1876 to train and modernize the Japanese army. However, while in Japan he comes to admire the fierce fighting spirit and sense of honor of samurai warriors, even though they only use swords and bows and arrows. He develops a relationship with samurai leader Katsumoto (Ken Watanabe) and tells him the story of how a small, vastly outnumbered army of Greeks held back a much larger Persian army for three days at the pass of Thermopylae in central Greece. In this scene just before the final climatic charge of the samurai army against the modern Japanese army, Katsumoto recalls this story and asks line one. Algren replies with line two. In the 2004 Academy Awards “The Last Samurai” was nominated for four awards but didn’t win any. The final climatic samurai charge is very reminiscent of the famous poem entitled “The Charge of the Light Brigade” by Alfred, Lord Tennyson (“Into the valley of death rode the six hundred…”). This poem was about a suicidal charge by mounted British forces in the battle of Balaclava (Ukraine) in the Crimean War (1854-56).
