The Debbie Downer of the Blogosphere

This is the role I have to fight hard against, since my natural tendency is to focus on everything horrible that is happening in the world. Being a Cassandra type, my invented mission is to alert everyone, and the result is that no one believes me because it is too negative.

So, to make sure that I don’t constantly depress my readers, I sometimes post quotes that are witty, clever or insightful. Here are a few:

“I won’t say ours was a tough school, but we had our own coroner. We used to write essays like: What I’m going to be if I grow up.” – Lenny Bruce

“My wife and I were happy for 20 years. Then we met.” – Rodney Dangerfield

“There is no such thing as “fun for the whole family.” – Jerry Seinfeld

“How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?” – Satchel Paige

“Any man who has $10,000.00 left when he dies is a failure.” – Errol Flynn

“We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.” – Anais Nin

“If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to.” – Dorothy Parker

“The murals in restaurants are on par with the food in museums.” – P. De Vries

“Santa Claus has the right idea; visit people once a year.” – V. Borge

“Half the lies they tell about me aren’t true.” – Y. Berra

“I have enough money to last me the rest of my life, unless I buy something.” – J. Mason

“I’ve had a perfectly wonderful evening. But this wasn’t it.” – G. Marx

“I bought some batteries, but they weren’t included.” – S. Wright

“The problem with cats is that they get the same exact look whether they see a moth or an ax murderer.” – P. Poundstone
