Five Quotes
Thursday, 2009 August 13 - 11:53 pm
I've been having trouble coming up with a new Five Lessons topic, so I'm doing something a little different today. My friend Anna wants each of her friends to come up with an original quote to put on a wall. So far I've come up with these possibilities:

  • If someone else shows you the way, it's the wrong way. Choose your own path.

  • God doesn't hate you. He's just not that into you.

  • To improve your life, improve yourself.

  • Happiness is not found at the bottom of a liquor bottle; it's somewhere in the middle.

I kinda wanted the quotes to be funnier, but I didn't want to sacrifice profundity.

Anyone have their own original quotes? And I do mean original, not something you read somewhere.
