Posted:I've just finished reading a book and wanted to share a quote with you all. It's something that really touched me and made me think about the way I live my life."I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice I life for it's own sake. Life is no 'brief candle' to me; it is a sort of splendid torch which I have hold of for a moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible."Thank you for listeningLisa

A kiss blown is a kiss wasted, the only kind of kiss is a kiss tasted.

I'm a woman. We don't say what we want, but we reserve the right to be pissed off if we don't get it. That's what makes us so fascinating and not just a LITTLE bit scary.

What book was it?Reminds me of what Malcolm said in another thread, which has stuck in my mind: quote:Pretend that every day you are given $1000 to spend. You can spend that money on whatever you want, but at the end of the day any money you have left over is taken off you forever and you never get it back.Now I am sure you would do your utmost best to plan your day to spend as much of that money each day to bring you happieness without wasting any of it.Now back to reality. Every day we are given 24hrs to spend. We can spend those hours on what ever we want, but at the end of the day you have lost all those hours forever and you never get it back.Now I am sure we would try to do our utmost best to plan our day to spend as much of those hours each day to bring us happieness without wasting any of it.

Posted:Always be careful about how you define "wasted time". Time is not wasted that is spent thinking, dreaming, smiling, and just being. But too often we think if we are not running, jumping, doing, we are wasting time.& so we become stressed out little bunny rabbits...R.

It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...
