Tuesday—Quotes to Remember

I’m nearing the end of the Tuesday topics you sent me – this week and next. Thank you very much for all of the ideas. The suggestion for this week was Quotable Quotes. Here are a bunch of my favorite ones that I’ve posted in the past – I still think they are grand.

Today I have two more to add:

This one hung on our refrigerator door through the kids' growing-up years. It kept me from nagging too much; I knew they knew it and they knew they knew it.

"Don’t trade what you want most for what you want now."
-anonymous

And here is a brand new one I found today. Last year while visiting Pike’s Market in Seattle Abe was asked for a quote by the news team. He speaks his piece at 1:10.

 

“I think it’s nonsense. I don’t see any problem with it.
They’re animals. They’re meant to be eaten.”
-Abe Payne


And why wouldn’t he believe that?

That's a great quote, definitely one that will prove more meaningful as the kids get older.

I couldn't watch all of the news clip (but did see Abe) because it's just too ridiculous.

i'm glad they took the least intelligent thing i said and edited it out from all the evidence i actually gave.

Ha ha ha. Abe, my favorite part was the, "they're animals. They're meant to be eaten." I heard your full quote, though. You were eloquent and intelligent. I always think it's funny to see what an "editor" choses to keep. I still loved the quote though. Simple truth... spoken simply.

Mom, I loved the old photos you dug up too. Reminded me of being little.

PETA is retarded. Yeah, I know that is not a nice word, but I can't think of anything better right now! Nonsense is the nicer word, I suppose. :)
