A good pithy quotation by some wise man or woman is like a ripe peach: sensuous, juicy, overflowing with good stuff.
God, I love peaches — I mean, quotes. (Well, both actually.)
I’ve been collecting great quotes for years, and have a file filled with thousands of them.
I’m also going to start sharing more of my favorites with you. Here’s one of my all-time faves from George Bernard Shaw:
“We don’t stop playing because we grow old. We grow old because we stop playing.”
In this high-stress world, we all need to remember to keep things light, to take time for fun, and not to take everything (especially ourselves) so seriously. Hey, that reminds me of a similar quote:
“Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly.”
What are your favorites? Post them in a comment so we can all enjoy them.
