Catchy movie lines, wise things somebody said once – our life is full of interesting quotes, some deep, some funny, some thought-provoking and some just a great way to fill the awkward silence. They are passed along from mouth to mouth, printed in your favorite magazines, pixelated on the web pages. Some of those quotes will twist your lips into that curvy line, others will ignite your little gray cells and rare, special ones could even become your mantra, a personal motto. So, take a look at these 7 interesting quotes and tell me what you think.
1. “You May Deceive All the People Part of the Time, and Part of the People All the Time, but Not All the People All the Time.” – Abraham Lincoln
Abe said a lot of smart things but this… this is my personal favorite. So, next time you get pissed off by a really good liar, just smile and think about this one. Some people couldn’t tell the truth if it bit them on their ass, others allow themselves to be fooled for a little while and, yet, there is no liar good enough to successfully handle them all. So, if that liar of yours is giving you trouble, just let him/her enjoy those five minutes of fame because the truth has a nasty little habit of coming out in the open and that moment might be closer than you think.
2. "if Toast Always Lands Butter-side down, and Cats Always Land on Their Feet, What Happens if You Strap Toast on the Back of a Cat and Drop It?" – Stephen Wright
Hahahaha! Interesting question indeed! I guess it depends on the side you choose to put butter on… But let’s not push it because I’m afraid Mythbusters might consider it worthy of investigating and I doubt the cat would find that very interesting.
3. "Men Marry Women with the Hope They Will Never Change. Women Marry Men with the Hope They Will Change. Invariably They Are Both Disappointed." – Albert Einstein
LOL! Okay, I wouldn’t say I totally agree on this one but, hey, I’m no Albert Einstein! Men do change, just as we do, although most women I know would probably jump in right now, trying to prove that when they do change, it’s rarely for the better. I guess men could say the same thing for us. LOL! Give me another 5 years and I’ll be able to tell you if that is really true.
4. "How Can a Woman Be Expected to Be Happy with a Man Who Insists on Treating Her as if She Were a Perfectly Normal Human Being." – Oscar Wilde
Huh, being perfectly normal has never been much fun so, yes, I do have to agree on this one. What is a perfectly normal human being, anyways? A person that eats, sleeps, works and what else? Does it involve huge cravings for gummy bears, the ability to bitch about a bad hairstyle for hours, worrying too much? I don’t know but I’ve always loved men who have the ability to accept my little weird moments with a smile, not because women or men do such things but because that’s just who I am. And I believe that’s all that matters. Having a man that accepts you and loves you for who you are- perfectly normal or totally crazy, it doesn’t really matter.
5. "I Am Patient with Stupidity but Not with Those Who Are Proud of It." – Edith Sitwell
Speaking about interesting quotes, here’s one you might want to write down and use whenever it is needed. I don’t doubt you will need it eventually, just like I do every once in a while. The world is, apparently, full of those that are not only proud of their stupidity but have no problem of shoving it in your face, making you feel like you’re the idiot. Phew!
6. "I Haven't Failed. I've Just Found 10,000 Ways That Won't Work." – Thomas Edison
Funny? Yes! True? Yes! But this short, catchy sentence is much, much more than just one of those interesting quotes we can use to show off. Failing is easy, finding the strength to carry on unfortunately isn’t but it is something we must do in order to succeed. A glass is always half full, isn’t it?
7. "It is the Mark of an Educated Mind to Be Able to Entertain a Thought without Accepting It." – Aristotle
Oh, I could write pages and pages on how much I like this one! I do, however, have to disagree with this Aristotle on one thing – being educated, unfortunately, has very little to do with it. I’ve met many very educated people that expressed no desire in entertaining a thought other than their own. Replace “educated” with “great” and you’ll have the best, one of the most interesting quotes to think about.
Do you have any interesting quotes to share today and what do you think about these I’ve listed above? I wish somebody would quote me one day… But, I’d actually have to say something smart for that to happen. LOL!
