Think About it Thursdays

I honestly think it is better to be a failure at something you love than to be a success at something you hate.

First you forget names, then you forget faces. Next you forget to pull your zipper up and finally, you forget to pull it down.

Totally agree! I'd rather fail at something that intrigues me than have to be faced to do the mundane day after day even though I do it well. Guess that's why I'm a writer!

Sounds a lot like old age to me...LOL!

I agree!

I liked George when he was with Gracie. We have a lot of their old tv shows and even a few radio broadcasts on tape. Hilarious!

Fun day,
Jen

I agree with the first part...second part is funny when said that way but it acutally is a sad stage of life!!

I love writing and would much rather create my stories despite the challenges inherent in the publishing business than do anything else.

Hi Diane:)

Very profound and meaningful quotes with a tinge of humor.

On second thoughts, is it possible to fail at something you love and be a success at something you hate? I am just confused :)

Have a wonderful day Diane

My refridgerator is such a mess! I wish that was mine. I would definitely fail at something I love than succeed at somehting I hate. What a great thought!

Good ole George.

I'd rather fail at what I love.

Thanks for your comment on my blog.

Funny quotes from George...I'm desperately hoping I never forget to pull down my zipper. ;)

P.S. You have the tidiest fridge I've ever seen.
