If you had one slogan that summed up life - what would it be?

42 posts in this topic

I love those philosophical slogans/words of wisdom that sum up attitudes to life - if you could choose one, what would it be?

On my kitchen wall I have....

Life is not about the breath we take but the moments that take our breath away.

I also have....born to shop not mop.

but my favorite is...

It's not the destination but the journey that's important.

This one is my absolute favorite!

Life is an uphill battle, and it aint about how fast you get there or what's waiting on the other side, it's the climb!!

No particular 'saying'. I just remind myself to act in a way that will leave me with no regrets when it's time to go home. And try to have as much fun as possible while doing that!

I have two. One is a plaque hanging on the wall in diningroom and it says "When life gives you lemons, Make lemonade."

The other is a nice sized fridge magnet on the front of the fridge. " Fat people are harder to kidnap!" (my buddy gave me that one year when I was feeling sorry for myself. Gave me a big laugh!)

I like the country song that says (hope I have the words right)

Life's a dance, you learn as you go,

sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow

Don't worry 'bout what you don't know

Life's a dance, you learn as you go

Our pastor had a really good sermon a couple of weeks ago, about setting standards and values for our children. He said the problem with the 'Me' generation is that we say we have to 'do what's right for me'...but the standards we set for ourselves, we keep lowering until they are easy to live by, and much easier than the ones our religion has set for us. I kinda liked that thought and had to ask myself if I was doing that...sometimes, I have to admit!

Anybody that says 'you know what I mean' to me, is liable to get slapped. That expression drives me crazy, I want so bad to tell them 'no, I don't have any idea what you mean'!

Um...because I'm a simple-minded type of person it comes from Disney's Cinderella..."Have faith in your dreams, and some day, a rainbow will come shining through, no matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dreams that you wish, will come true."

And oddly enough from the Golden Girls -

Magenta - what a nasty color,...when your sad, your blue, when your green it's with envy, mad, you are red red, but Magenta, well it's a mix of colors, so when I don't quite know how I feel, I'm Magenta..., the only use for that nasty color" - it's not an exact quote, but it's close enough for me... :lol:

Not sure it could be titled as a slogan, but one of my favorites is:

Time marches on... and eventually you realize it's marching across your face! :lol:

I am sure most of you have seen this (it's from a miniature website ... www.dollhouseminiatures.com) but it seemed appropriate here for those that might have missed it!

A MINIATURE VIEWPOINT

I have tree stumps in the bedroom

A bordello in the hall

Box rooms, varied sizes,

Hang in rows upon the wall

A dollshouse in the bedroom

And another by the door

A castle, jail and baby shop

A wishing well and more!

You’re not like Other Mothers

My despairing family cry

You’re living in another world

You’re nuts, I hear them sigh

Other People’s Mothers

They say in stern reproof

Use irons for their clothing

Not for shingles on the roof

Or making little flowers

Of puff paint, blue and red

Other People’s Mothers

Don’t get sawdust in the bread

Other People’s Mothers

Bake wondrous cakes and pies

Not creatures out of Fimo

With bewitching little eyes

Other People’s Mothers

(I can’t believe it’s true)

Keep spotless tidy kitchens

Not paint and wood and glue

Other People’s Mothers

Rumor has it—Clean their floor

They don’t cut up the budgie cage

To make a jail door

Or interrupt the bidding

At bridge to say—“Three spades,

And can I have your shirt

To make an outfit for my maid?”

Other People’s Mothers

Must have a boring life

How tedious to be

A perfect housekeeper and wife

No polystyrene sandwiches

No fairies on the shelf

No dreaming of another world

You created by yourself

Other People’s Mothers

Have got their lives all wrong

They have their Christmas once a Year

We have it all year long!!!

MINIATURES FOREVER!
