In life, we can either let our experiences make us bitter, or we can channel that feeling towards being a good example in order to improve things.

I was looking at some quotes and found some pretty interesting ones.


"A Hospital is no place to be sick. "
- Samuel Goldwyn

"The only really good place to buy lumber is at a store where the lumber has already been cut and attached together in the form of furniture, finished, and put inside boxes."
-Dave Barry

"I installed a skylight in my apartment...The people who live above me are furious."
-Steven Wright

...and always remember the last words of my grandfather, who said "A truck!

I was at a bar nursing a beer. My nipple was getting quite soggy

I was in a bar the other night, hopping from barstool to barstool, trying to get lucky---but there wasn't any gum under any of them

How many people here have telekenetic powers? Raise my hand

I once had a large gay following, but I ducked into an alleyway and lost him

New York's such a wonderful city. Although I was at the library today. The guys are very rude. I said, "I'd like a card." He says, "You have to prove you're a citizen of New York." So I stabbed him.

When I wake up in the morning, I just can't get started until I've had that first, piping hot pot of coffee. Oh, I've tried other enemas.

That'll do for now - Happy Chanukah

I love stephen wright's line: "I bought a map of new york with a scale of one inch equals one inch. It took me three weeks to fold it back up."

Lvnsm27 said...

Masmida, thanks for mentioning.

Cloo, lol! that's cute.

Parsha Potpourri said...

Thanks for explaining. Now that you mentioned it, Steven Wright's name sounded familiar. I went back to where I thought I once saw it, and I was right. Another great quote of his:

I have the world's largest collection of seashells. I keep it on all the beaches of the world... perhaps you've seen it.

FrumGirl said...

Very tongue-in-cheek.

Lvnsm27 said...

Parsha, you're welcome. Thanks for adding another one.

Fg, I guess. But sarcasm is his way.
