I like that one, don't pay too much attention to the ominous ticking sound, I consider it background noise.
Thank you, Michael, for a weeks good quotes, some made me think,, some made me smile and some made me do both at the same time!

James Thurber had such a strange little outlook on life and his stories always make me laugh. This quote makes a lot of sense to me. The past for me is definitely a comfortable armchair and I've pretty much forgotten about the unpleasant things that have happened and think back over the good. I do at times see the present as a ticking clock,meaning..I need to do this,I need to do that,will I get it done in time etc. etc. etc. Kind of like Alice's rabbit. I agree..good quotes all week long.

Loved all your quotes and grinned a lot. I also tend not to hear the ticking, not much I can do about that and since I am an optimist by trade, I don't worry too much about the future either. The past is definitely that armchair, except that mine is not in the attic, I sit in it quit comfortabely.
