321 Quote Me – Life’s to short to waste.

Rory (A Guy Called Bloke) has set another 321 game. In Rory’s words

*****

321 Quote Me is NO LONGER a tagging game – it is now a Community Prompt Game only, as in if any of my readership wish to take part – they can do so freely on their own steam and not through either a ‘tagging’ or an obligation to play.

Guidelines: 3.2.1 Quote Me!

  • Post 3 quotes on topic
  • Post 2 pieces of music on topic.
  • Display one image which represents the topic in your eyes.

This week the topic is Life’s Too Short To Waste which spookily was what I’ve been thinking about today. So here goes:

“It is said that your life flashes before your eyes just before you die. That is true, it’s called Life” – Terry Pratchett

“I don’t wait for the calendar to figure out when I should live life” – Gene Simmons

“Dream as if you will live forever; Live as if you will die today” – James Dean

Iron Maiden – Wasted Years

“One should always be wary of people who talk unashamedly of fellowship and good cheer as if it were something that can be applied to life like a poultice. Turn your back for a moment and they may well organise a Maypole dance and, frankly, there’s no option then but to try and make it to the tree line” – Terry Pratchett

Money can’t buy you happiness but it does bring you a more pleasant form of misery” – Spike Milligan

Inner Beauty

Thanks to Di (Pensitivity101) for the Quote Me 321 tag.

Rory (A Guy Called Bloke) selects a random topic and the challenge is to post two quotes on that topic. The topic here is Inner Beauty.

The first one is from Miss Piggy

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it may be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye

The second is from Avijeet Das

True beauty is not in how people look. It is in how people love, care, and share

And one extra for free. Need a bit of a Carl Sagan fix.

The beauty of a living thing is not the atoms that go into it, but the way those atoms are put together

I’m going to open this up to anyone who fancies a go. If you do give Rory a mention. Thanks.

Random Quotes

Things have been a crazy over last week or so. It’s either busy or being even more tired than usual. Can’t work out which. But I’ve been very remiss on responding to stuff. Sorry. Anyway let’s at least respond to one thing quickly.

Thank you to Rory (A Guy Called Bloke) for the Random Quotes. His quotes are epic. The subject is Attitude so let’s do some quotes.

Always try to get at least one of my heroes in. Time for some Carl Sagan.

“The really intelligent people have an attitude of fact finding rather than fault finding”

Next are from another person sadly not with us anymore. The one if a kind Lemmy (Motörhead).

I’ve been known as Lemmy since I was around 10. I didn’t always have the mustache … I’ve only had that since I was 11

“If you’re going to be a fucking rock star, go be one. People don’t want to see the guy next door on stage; they want to see a being from another planet.”

One from the brilliant Stephen Fry

“Taste every fruit of every tree in the garden at least once. It’s an insult to creation not to experience it fully”.

My 3 tags for quotes about attitude are
