Bill Murray said "I'm suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog when it doesn't like a person" I love this. First of all... I'm kind of a big fan of Bill Murray. I don't know if I'd like him as a person, but he does star in a few of my favorite movies. His characters are always very flawed, but also very lovable. He can be serious and bring you to tears... or he can find a way to make you laugh in the middle of a pretty serious scene with his amazingly quick wit. I think that's him... either that or the writers are all great at putting the right words in at the right time. Oh, and as for the thing he said about dogs... I agree. If my dog doesn't like you... it's probably YOU!

J. Mike Fields said "If you want it, you'll make time. If you want it, you'll take action. Excuses are for the mediocre, and you're anything but that. Go out and make it happen." I love this. I was recently taking to a guy who's literally on his death bed. As I was sitting with him at hospice, we talked about so many things, but one thing I mentioned was that I need to take better care of my own health. He called me on it. He said... “John... if you mean that... you need to actually do something about it. You're cheating your wife by not taking better care of yourself” He's 100% right. I do need to make more time to get the exercise I need... to eat better and to get more sleep!

Robin Williams said “I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy. Because they know what it's like to feel absolutely worthless and they don't want anyone else to feel like that.” I think we may have had this quote shared in the past, but it's a great quote. It's also a sad quote when you realize that Robin Williams took his own life.... and he did so much to bring joy to others... all the while he was wrestling with his own inner demons. If you have friends who might be in that same position. I encourage you to stay in touch with them. Let them know how much they mean to you and tell them you love them often!

Sofo Archon said "What's the best way to control people? Divide them into different ideological groups and they'll soon start fighting against each other. This way they will forget who their true enemy is." Sadly, this happens all the time. In the office... in politics... in religion... in life in general. Instead of letting anyone divide you... and tell you who to dislike. Think for yourself. I have many friends who are complete opposite of me in different areas of our lives. I pride myself in being able to RISE ABOVE that to have a meaningful conversation about things we DO agree on. Does that mean I'll change their mind on the other thing? NO... I will most likely not even attempt to!

Michael Rivero said "Most people do not have the courage to face that choice. Hence, most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all." YIKES! That quote kinda hits close to home if you're on social media! Have you noticed that it seems like much of the information is pushed out with very little though about whether or not the information is even true? I'm one of those critical thinkers who actually look into things. Many times I find the story to be untrue. Back when I would point that out... I would usually be attacked by someone online... so now I usually scroll on!
