With Woody" 10 inspirational quotes than can improve yourself
It might take a little coffee or probably a few rounds of beer or any
other booze you could get your hands on when it comes to relaxing after
a hard day's work. Well, yeah I'm guilty about that one as well, unless
I'm caught dead wearing a lampshade over my head after a few rounds of
vodka… half-naked! Okay, bad example and I apologize to
everyone reading this after getting nightmares about me in that state
of drunken stupor.
Just don't ask how it happened, please.
But what's really interesting is that how do people go through the
usual part of life when faced with vein-popping stress? I mean, the new
age thing like Zen or yoga is one of the good things and it actually
works. Is there room for the intellectual side of people who can
actually smell the roses-in-a-can while on the move? It kind of had me
thinking that there really must be something in this 'mind-over-matter'
Humor is indeed the best medicine there is whenever you are. I mean
anyone can pay good money to listen to a comedian just to make you wet
your pants after laughing so hard. Despite of what's been happening,
and to those who has gone though the ordeal, it's better to just laugh
while facing the troubles with a clear mind than anger with a clouded
vision. One of my favorite celebrities of all time may have to be Woody
Allen. Now this is one guy who gives you the in-your-face bluntness
that he pulls out with gusto, even without even trying. You can talk
just about anything with a man, and he's bound to mock the subject and
you'll end up laughing rather than being upset about it.
Woody Allen has this to say:
1. "Money is better than poverty, if only for financial reasons." It
sounds good to me, I mean the practicality of all things does involve
money but it doesn't have to take an arm and a leg to get it.
2. "I believe there is something out there watching us. Unfortunately,
it's the government." 'Nuff said.
3. "There are worse things in life than death. Have you ever spent an
evening with an insurance salesman?" This happens to be one of the
classic ones. I mean the issue about life's little problems isn't all
that bad, until 'he' shows up.
Sure, relationships can get complicated, or does have its complications
that probably any author about relationships is bound to discover it
soon. We follow what our heart desires, unless you're talking about the
heart as in the heart that pump blood throughout your body.
4. "Love is the answer, but while you're waiting for the answer, sex
raises some pretty interesting questions." And if you want more, just
keep on asking!
5. "A fast word about oral contraception. I asked a girl to go to bed
with me, she said 'no'." It sounds, 'practical', I think.
And when it comes to everyday life, he really knows how to make the
best out of every possible scenario, and it doesn't involve a lawsuit
if he strikes a nerve.
6. "Basically my wife was immature. I'd be at home in the bath and
she'd come in and sink my boats." I never had a boat in my bathtub
before. Just staring at it while soaking in hot water makes me seasick
7. "I am not afraid of death, I just don't want to be there when it
happens." If it rains, it pours.
8. "I am thankful for laughter, except when milk comes out of my nose."
It could get worse when you're guzzling on beer… or
mouthwash, and it happened to me once!
9. "If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans." At least
he doesn't smite us with lightning, and I'm thankful for that.
And despite of what may happen to all of us in the next ten, twenty, or
even thirty years, I guess we all have to see things in a different
kind of light and not just perspective. I can't seem to imagine life
without any piece of wisdom that could guide us. Whether we're
religious or not, it takes more courage to accept your fears and learn
how to deal with them is all that matters when it comes to even just
And to sum things up, here is the last nugget of wisdom to go
by… however, whenever, and wherever we may be.
10. "The talent for being happy is appreciating and liking what you
have, instead of what you don't have."
