Anything on your mind that isn't about RLS? It's nice to realize that there is life beyond this disease and have an opportunity to get to know our online family in a different context.

Favorite quotes

Post by Rubyslipper »

I read an article in a magazine that had favorite quotes from different people. I have a couple too and thought it might be fun to see what quotes are special to others. So if you want to, post your favorite quote/quotes and why you like them so much.

"Well-behaved women seldom make history" I just like the idea of all the "rebel" women in the world and the contribution they have made to society.

That's my first one--I have several more.

Don't pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches.

Andy Warhol

I too like rebels....they don't care what the rest of the world thinks about them just their friends
I feel like a science project!!!

I hope a few more people respond to this thread but maybe it's just one of those that doesn't interest anyone else. I love to read quotes that mean something to others. I even have a little Wizard of Oz journal that I keep special quotes in. I was hoping to add to it with a notation of who sent the quote.

Tazzer, thanks for sending yours. If I don't get any others, that's okay but just thought it might be fun. It might take off yet!

One of my favorite quotes is from the movie "Parenthood." I don't know if anyone has watched it or not--it's probably at least 10 years old or older. It starred Steve Martin and Mary Steenbergen. They are parents of 4 kids (I think) and life just isn't that easy for them. Their kids are cute, but they all have problems of one kind or another. Nothing major, but enough to make them "different." Anyway, Steve's grandmother comes in after Mary tells Steve she's pregnant again. He had just quit his job and wasn't thrilled with life, period. His grandmother comes in the room and says (obviously using a roller coaster as a metaphor for life):

You know, when I was nineteen, Grandpa took me on a roller coaster.
Gil: Oh?
Grandma: Up, down, up, down. Oh, what a ride!
Gil: What a great story.
Grandma: I always wanted to go again. You know, it was just so interesting to me that a ride could make me so frightened, so scared, so sick, so excited, and so thrilled all together! Some didn't like it. They went on the merry-go-round. That just goes around. Nothing. I like the roller coaster. You get more out of it.
Parenthood. 1989.

Pretty wise old woman! You know, I like the roller coaster, too! Sometimes it scares the heck out of me, but--in the end--it sure IS more fun than the merry-go-round.

Sorry this is so long....
