Do you have a favorite quote that you return to again and again? What is it, and why does it move you?
One of the indisputable facts about jelly (ie jello, not jam) is that its ultimate shape will depend on the mould in which you leave it to set.
One of the downsides – or upsides, take your pick – of having a mind like unset jelly is that the answer to a multitude of questions is depends on the day – ie, what’s the shape of today’s mould? Could be square, could be round, could be dog-shaped. Could be frog-in-a-pond – my daughter-in-law’s specialty for kids’ parties: green jelly in a glass with a chocolate frog suspended in the middle.
This could be because I’m a Gemini – a volatile, fickle butterfly, so they say, but since this makes me ROFL (me??!!) I’m guessing it’s something much more mundane like… I don’t know, you choose.
Anyway, the upshot is that I have lots of quotes I return to again and again – you guessed it, depending on the day.
To everything there is a season
and a time to every purpose under heaven
Ecclesiastes adapted by Pete Seeger
Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof
Don’t be a sheep, X. People eat sheep.
(X = insert name as required)
And for today’s favourite:
Thou shalt smile and have a nice day.
It upsets those who have other plans for thee.
