Quote 1 - 7 - 12

don_socalJanuary 7, 2012

I'd rather be a could-be if I cannot be an are;

because a could-be is a maybe who is reaching for a star.

I'd rather be a has-been than a might-have-been, by far;

for a might have-been has never been, but a has was once an are.

Milton Berle

You can't help getting older, but you don't have to get old.

George Burns

Never continue in a job you don't enjoy. If you're happy in

what you're doing, you'll like yourself, you'll have inner

peace. And if you have that, along with physical health, you

will have had more success than you could possibly have imagined.

Johnny Carson

I've had a few arguments with people, but I never carry a

grudge. You know why? While you're carrying a grudge, they're

out dancing.

Buddy Hackett

If by chance some day you're not feeling well and you should

remember some silly thing I've said or done and it brings back

a smile to your face or a chuckle to your heart, then my purpose

as your clown has been fulfilled.

Red Skelton

That's another fine mess you've gotten me into.

Oliver Hardy and Stan Laurel

Loved all your quotes this week and many made me smile. Is it coincidental that most of them are all of the older generation? Must be the wisdom of the age (of course I don't include myself in that category yet).

Yes, Don. Good all week. Agree with anneliese about the older generation. Not there yet either. Mid-eighties surely can't qualify for older generation.
