Three Quotation Thursday

If you have an important point to make, don’t try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time—a tremendous whack. Winston Churchill

Oh my stars....would that we could sometimes just WHACK the people over the head instead of merely whacking the point!!

I object to people running down the future. I am going to live all the rest of my life there.
Charles F Kettering

Don't you just wonder how some folks get through the day? I know at least ten people who should be walking around carrying hand baskets as they are convinced that civilization is getting ready to go to "H E double toothpicks" in a hand basket. COME ON...lighten up. Sing a song...dance a dance...hug somebody...eat an ice cream cone...BE JOYFUL...it can't hurt now, can it??

A sense of humor... is needed armor. Joy in one's heart and some laughter on one's lips is a sign that the person down deep has a pretty good grasp of life. Hugh Sidey

And that's all that I have to say about THAT!
