A Handy Thing to Have Around..

Quotes and Notes #210, June 8

“A quotation is a handy thing to have about, saving one the trouble of thinking for oneself, always a laborious business.”—A.A.Milne, “If I May”

I love having a quotation sitting about. It pleases me to read and think about some of the thoughts that have been handed down for generations.

I enjoy reading current quotes and noticing the similarities with those antique sayings. The practice also helps me to channel my thoughts a bit—of a morning. As for little pinches of thought, Milne left us a treasure trove. This is a part of his claim to immortality.

I commented the other day on someone’s blog entry, telling her I enjoyed it. She answered, “Thanks, that made me smile.”
I had shared a smile with someone far away whom I had never met.
Everything is going to be all right.
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”
