There are two types of people–those who come into a room and say, ‘Well, here I am!’ and those who come in and say, ‘Ah, there you are.’
– Frederick L Collins
It being St. Patrick’s Day and me being Irish, a toast:
A toast to your coffin.
May it be made of 100 year old oak.
And may we plant the tree together, tomorrow.
The Onion has posted a very infromative Irish Heritage Timeline for those not so familiar with our culture.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day
I love a good quote. A good quote from a smart person is so much better than a long book by some self-help idiot anyday. A good quote can teach you a life lesson in a sentence or two; sometimes better then an actual life experience. Plus, for the short-attention-span set such as myself, it’s all there between the quotation marks to parse and remember, then a name with some credibilty follows making it a fact.
And so I would like to start a new category and go with a quote I lifted from my friend Geno’s email signature:
“I am neither especially clever nor especially gifted. I am only very, very
curious.” – Albert Einstein
