Play With It

A   L   O   H   A !
" To truly laugh,
you must be able
to take your pain
and play with it. "

Charlie Chaplin

" When people talk, 
listen completely. 

Most people never 
listen. "

Ernest Hemingway

" There's nothing written 
in the Bible, 
Old or New testament, 
that says, If 
you believe in Me, 
you ain't going
 to have no troubles. "

Ray Charles

" To find joy in work
is to discover
the fountain of youth. "

Pearl Buck

A strange and unique coupling of aphorisms, pain, listening, and youth--maybe I will play with all of them and find a way to--(hardy har har) not be cynical today.

I like the Chaplin quote

Didn't realize I was playing with pain. I thought I was just laughing to cover it up. What an awesome hospice thought, too!

Your quotes fit today! I agree, except when it comes to hubby. Sadly, the fact that we're from such different heartstrings, pops up. Your quote on playing with (that issue)or pain is just wonderful magic! Time to play away!

I know that when I'm working well on writing I do forget how old I am and all the aches and pains.

Brian Miller said...

i agree with hemingway...most people are too busy thinking of what they want to say next to listen to much of anything...

Joy in work and the fountain of youth appeal to me greatly Cloudia.

Hemingway didn't follow his own excellent advice very well. Listening, really listening, is surprisingly difficult.
Laughing at myself is very easy though...

Ahhh... Ray Charles' quote is perfect, isn't it? I can't understand how people wonder why God has forsaken them because He didn't save them from a particular disaster. It bothers me even more when people say God saved them from the tornado or whatever. Are you saying He preferred you to your neighbors? Sigh.... I get tired of that.
