Even though I almost never end up using them, I like to collect quotes and anecdotes that speak to me. For example, I really enjoyed this observation that Laurie posted yesterday:
Another quote that I've been keeping in reserve for a few weeks is from Winnie-the-Pooh. It pretty well sums up about half of the things I write or say (just ask my husband):
One morning, as I was making school lunches, I dropped a bunch of cheese on my dog's head...
Now, whenever I am making lunches, the dog dances with excitement, his eyes sparkling with hope and joyful anticipation.
I want to live my life like that. Life is good. And you never know when cheese might fall from the sky.
"I don't see much sense in that," said Rabbit.
"No," said Pooh humbly, "there isn't. But there was going to be when I began it. It's just that something happened to it along the way."
You'd think I'd have more quotes to continue this germ of a post idea, but I'm too disorganized to find them later when I actually want them. Thus, we'll end with a quote from Motley Crue that I've co-opted for myself as a statement of feminist empowerment:
"Just because we wear lipstick doesn't mean we can't kick your ass!"
