Al: I don’t want you to think that the reason we’re not married is because I think anything of anyone else. It’s because I’m 40 years old and I’m a failure.

Annie: I will kill you if you talk like that.

Al: I’ll get work again, I know. I won’t have seniority because of what happened. I don’t wanna get sidetracked. The reason that I never talked marriage to you is because I couldn’t stand to see you, the princess of worry weighted down by me and my limited prospects. Because I get your worry, Annie. I know a lot of people think that’s a bad thing about you. But I know that it’s because you have a great big heart, and I love you for it! You know? And then… I started to worry, all right? About what would happen to you… and this little hulk. If you guys wound up with someone who thought that your worry was you know…

Annie: Neurotic?

Al: Right, yeah. Somebody who didn’t get you. Who wanted you to feel bad about yourself. Wanted to make you be more normal or wanted you to change…or like yourself more. Who didn’t love all of it, Annie. Who didn’t wanna leave great enough alone. And I thought that I…. I could do that for you. That could be a legitimate function for me in your life. So that allows me… [takes out ring and kneels on the ground]

Annie: Oh, my God!

Al: to propose to you that we get married. I wanna marry you.

The world is no longer a romantic place. Some of its people still are however and therein lies the promise. Don’t let the world win, Ally McBeal.

 

John to Ally from Ally McBeal.

“What is more, I am going to give you a present.”

He laughed once more.

“And that is my present – just that…”

-The Little Prince, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.

I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.

I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.

I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.

I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.

I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.

I wish enough “Hello’s” to get you through the final “Good-bye”.

I wish you enough. 🙂

The best thing about being a part of this group is that there’s always someone there for you.
And, yes, it hurts my teeth to lean on someone, but I wouldn’t trade this group for anything.
We all take care of each other.

 

Cougar town, Season 2.

“Anyone can become angry – that is easy,

but to be angry with the right person at the right time,
and for the right purpose
and in the right way

– that is not within everyone’s power and that is not easy.”

 

(Aristotle)

Betty : “But she doesn’t play fair.”
Daniel : “That’s her problem. You just have to worry about yourself.” *

Or as George Bernard saw once said it, “I learned it long a go, never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig loves it.”

No hay excusas. There are no excuses.

No las busques. Don’t look for them.

Se tu mismo.  Just be yourself.

You gotta be a little skeptical, Sharona. Otherwise you end up believe in everything

–Monk.

“When you get anxious about the future, it is better not to think about it.

The more you think about it the more anxious you’ll get.

Of course its important to think about what lies ahead, too, but if you only look at what’s down the road, you’ll get tangled by the “laundry” by your feet and fall, wont you?

You see, its also important to think about what you can do now.

What you can do today, and if you keep washing things one at a time, you’ll be done before you know it.

Sometimes the anxiety will start to well up, but when it does… take a little break. Read a book, watch tv, or eat soumen with everyone.”
