Saturday Critters and Commons

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Common sense is
not so common.

The most common way
people give up their power
is by thinking they
don't have any.
        Alice Walker

The two most common
elements in the universe are
hydrogen and stupidity.
     Harlan Ellison

Don't wait for extraordinary
opportunities. Seize common
occasions and make them great. 
  Orison Swett Marden

Just Passing Through

Everybody gets
so much information
all day long that they
lose their common sense.
Gertrude Stein

Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

Speaking of stupid, one of my neighbors still has his tRUMP sign up.

Cloudia said...

How stupidly self-defeating some Americans have become. But my spider Sense is telling me things are going to go better in future. I just have a tingle and I've been right before. Remember the Berlin wall? LOL

Pixie is reaching out to seize the wisdom of the universe without disturbing her catnap too much. She has definitely learned how to make the most of the common! Lovely post today.

Love the Pixie in hiding on this uncommon post.

Hello,:=) You have lots of creatures on your post today, all the images are unusual in a way. Love the Pixi Paw one, and the common sense quotes.

Pixie has the right idea.

We do get SO much information in a day that it can be overwhelming. These are good quotes. Enjoy your weekend!

RedPat said...

Love the quotes and pics today. Pixie & I had the same feeling this morning - stay under the covers!

Sandi said...

The first one is so true.


Caro G said...

The Voltaire witticism is still a propos today. Love today's theme & & Marden's inspiring quote- make the everyday uncommon - even a cat's paw can be an extraordinary subject. =^..^=

Kay said...

These quotes are oh so true. Sad about the stupidity. Sad because I have a friend who is ordering ivermectin from Canada.

Pixie is adorable!

Aloha Cloudia and Pixie and all these adorable critters, which I missed until now. Lovely post and your quotes are spot on.
