More Great Quotes

Gleaned from a recent magazine article, I can not remember who these words were attributed to:

"The richest person in the world... isn't the person who has the most, but the one who needs the least."

"...the real trick in life is to turn hindsight into foresight that reveals insight."

I finally finished reading The Five People You Meet In Heaven , it was beautiful and very nourishing for the mind and spirit. I just finished watching the movie based on this book too. Well-directed and it did not leave out anything pertinent from the book.

Currently slogging through the rest of The Saint, Surfer, and CEO, it feels dry and I am experiencing a bit of guilt for not liking it as much as the other people I've known who thought it was profound.

In the spirit of wanting to revisit some of the classics, I just started slogging through Sense and Sensibility and there are now recurring memories of why I did not enjoy even the condensed version of it in high school. Maybe I am just not intellectual enough to connect with it or perhaps it is the fact that I need to crack a dictionary several times on each page to research disused English vocabulary words. Regardless, I doubt I will be finishing it.

C'mon, you can't tell me they aren't intelligent...

As featured on Cute Overload.

Nothing much going on right now. Did my taxes, waiting to get in contact with the mortgage broker again... watching movies and TV series on DVD to pass the time between the gym and the days when the weather allows me to hike or cross-country ski. I am especially enjoying the first two seasons of Upright Citizens Brigade. It is a pity that the show was cut down in it's prime. I don't believe a lot of people really understood it and appreciated it for what it was. Yes, it was a bit twisted, off-color, and obscure but it was definitely ahead of it's time and marketed to the wrong audience.
