A Few Words of Wisdom :-)

I had actually planned to post my Grey’s reviews as today’s NaBloPoMo post. I didn’t get around to write it yet though, because I was so so lazy today. Well, not quite, I got some things done. Tiny things, but still. Just not the things I had actually planned to do ;-)

A recent chat with hai_di about Grey’s quotes finally let me start to “import” all my mail signatures from the file in which they are stored into the new Clippings add-on for Thunderbird. Because the old -, which let me randomly and easily add a signature stopped working some months ago. Importing in this case means “copy & paste” and I’m still not done with it. I came across a few quotes (TV, movie, literature, music or any other unknown source) I almost forgot I had kept as signature or “wisdom”. I really should use them more often… Things like these:

Don’t wonder why people go crazy. Wonder why they don’t.
(TV, “Grey’s Anatomy”, 2008)

It’s not denial. I’m just selective about the reality I accept.
(Calvin & Hobbes)

I could give up chocolate. but I’m not a quitter.

And one of my favourite German ones…

Manchmal habe ich den begründeten Verdacht, dass sich das richtige Leben weit unter meinem Niveau abspielt.
(Cora von Ablaß-Krause alias Gerburg Jahnke von den “Missfits”)

  1. I used google translate for the German quote, and I LOVE IT. Also love that you have a Calvin & Hobbes quote. I loved that comic!

    • I checked google translate and the translation (of this quote and probably in general) is pretty awesome. Nothing compared to bablefish and all. The “reason to suspect” quote is from a character played from a female comedy duo. This character is an alcoholic writer and the alcohol makes her speaks pretty straight forward. Another one from her goes something like this : “There should be tests for the permission to speak. Failed = Shut up! Oh God, there would be such a silence”

      Calvin and Hobbes are so full of win!
