Quote of the day

“Be yourself: everyone else is already taken.”   – Oscar Wilde, attrib.

I laughed like anything !   :)

I saw this quote on the NEW BLOG of my very dear blogging friend Simon Johnson – a man who is quite unable to  stop widening his cerebral horizons. I admire him enormously.

Have finally found home: in my ... ahh ... later years. With no family within coo-ee and no assets, I'm in a wonderful and totally independent unit within the auspices of a celebrated aged care organization. Idea is that I have two 'houses' I can move into were I to become cerebrally challenged: but it's my firm intention not to. :D P.S. I have no idea how I got to this number of years: I was young only last week ..

  1. I like this quote. You might also enjoy one that I have sitting prominently where I see it every day:

    “Always be yourself. Unless you can be a unicorn. Then always be a unicorn.” I think as we age, this could be a really excellent direction in which to aim! :-)

    1. I shall draw Simon’s attention to that, Debra – it is very nice indeed ! :)
      I like the idea of your being able to see it whenever: it’s a delightful version of a reminder.


              1. I can’t seem to see it on his blog nor on your comments. Am I losing it? I did see a couple of quotes on one of his blog posts at the bottom of the post – so is it his blog theme that auto posts the quote suggestions?

                1. Shit a brick: I can’t find it now, either ! Hmm Simon’s new site has some technical problems (like, there’s no Home) that he wouldn’t want me to bother him with on account of his rarified mental state – I shall tell him I said that ! [grin] But yes, I believe it’s the theme. Maybe it’s the theme causing all the problems !

                    1. Well, I think it is, even if it’s sometimes above my comprehension level. Simon can’t stop studying and learning, that’s his problem. :)


Go on - you can say it. :)
