Q - is for Quotes

I feel like I am cheating with Quotes as my topic ... but Q - I just couldn't get going with Q.

Initial Q-words just didn't pan out:
  • Quaker - interesting topic but would take alot of research.
  • Then I thought Queen - like in Queen for a Day (the old TV show) - but probably 75% of my audience would know what the heck I was talking about.
  • And then there is Quest. No. Not inspiring.
  • Briefly I thought about Questions - since I was questioning what to write.
  • I had almost settled on Quarantine. But that also died a quiet death.
Finally I started searching for Quotes. And I had a few very good laughs with these. So today it is Quotes!


When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car.

After twelve years of therapy my psychiatrist said something that brought tears to my eyes. He said, "No hablo ingles."

May those who love us love us,
and those who do not love us,
may God turn their hearts,
and if He cannot turn their hearts
may He turn their ankles
that we may know them by their limping.
~Irish Prayer

"Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them, you are a mile away from them and you have their shoes."
Jack Handey
