Quotes of the Day

Could we please have a go at this? Needs to be original, or something that is said by you, family or friends. I have so many sayings from my late philosophical mother. I will start with one of them. This particular one has helped me and my family big time.

'The people who don't want you, don't really deserve you'.

"I'll make you a DJ - I'll make you famous." -my seven year-old cousin.

He randomly told me this when we were at a parade, shortly after which he pulled both the drawstrings on my hood completely closed. Suddenly, there was a faceless guy fighting a kid (who was laughing maniacally) in the middle of the sidewalk. Not my proudest moment. :)

"I'm worried that the life force from my soul is going to go in the ground and then into him and he'll come alive, and he'll be angry, and we'll be the only ones here, and then we'll be lunch."

This isn't really advice, but I think it's funny. One night my best friend and I were walking around town and we were going to cross the street when she saw a dead snake in the middle of the road. She's terrified of snakes. And that's what she said when she refused to go anywhere near it. : )

A question I have stickied on my computer is "How do you eat an elephant?"... which of course everyone knows the answer to, but by asking it as a question it forces me to think of the answer whenever I see it.
