A friend sent me this pithy quote when I was stressing about my son.
I think she wanted me to put it all in perspective, and I did. Salinger was probably being sexist and paternalistic, yet I tend to agree with him…a little.
Another friend told me: “You’re only as happy as your saddest child”. I thought about this poignant quote. It’s probably very true, but a little worrying as my teenage daughter is a HUGE drama queen and if my moods sync with hers, I’m in big trouble…
Another friend sent me this:
…and I laughed. She sent it because I love chickens and because it’s funny, (and a bit deep and existential).
I got to thinking about clever quotes and I must say, Oscar Wilde is my all time favourite quoter, I think he’s my favourite because, what he said more than 150 years ago, is still witty and relevant today.
So I’ll finish this post with a Wilde quote. It’s on a magnet on my fridge and it sums up a certain bravado, a chutzpah, I admire: “Life is too important to be taken seriously.”
Do you have a favourite quote, a philosophical thought that resonates?
