Posts Tagged ‘Happy Birthday to me’

I intend to live forever, or die trying.
  ―  Groucho Marx
Just give me a comfortable couch, a dog, a good book, and a woman.  Then if you can get the dog to go somewhere and read the book, I might have a little fun.
  ―  Groucho Marx
[Just sitting here on the couch, scratching my dog’s back, reading a book and missing my Hil who is off visiting her family in Liverpool…  Happy Birthday to me!  —  KMAB]

If we make our goal to live a life of compassion and unconditional love, then the world will indeed become a garden where all kinds of flowers can bloom and grow.
   —  Daphne Rose Kingma
Do not take life too seriously.  You will never get out of it alive.
   —  Elbert Hubbard
I am not what I ought to be.  I am not what I want to be.  I am not what I hope to be.  But still, I am not what I used to be.  And by the grace of God, I am what I am.
  —  John Newton
[Hopefully, one year closer to reaching the garden with a smile and content with where I am…   Happy Birthday to me!  —  KMAB]

I’m not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything.  I’ve always been a freak.  So I’ve been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know.  I’m one of those people.
    ―  John Lennon
When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life.  When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up.  I wrote down ‘happy’.  They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.
  ―  John Lennon
[When I was young I was asked what I wanted to be when I grow up, I used to reply: “Young.”   Now, when asked (usually sarcastically) the same question, I reply: “Old.”   I guess that’s just the cowboy in me…

I am incapable of conceiving infinity, and yet I do not accept finity.  I want this adventure that is the context of my life to go on without end.
   —  Simone de Beauvoir
[Happy Birthday to me!   Actually, I’ve found the older I get and the more brushes with death I have, the more accepting I am of my own mortality and the greater infinite context beyond this one.  But I’m nowhere near ready to start it!  —  KMAB]

Unpaved

Some people try to turn back their odometers.  Not me, I want people to know “why” I look this way.  I’ve traveled a long way and some of the roads weren’t paved!
  —  Will Rogers
[Happy Birthday to me!  Here’s to the unpaved roads… and miles to go, before I sleep!!  —  KMAB]
