Recently here on 1057thehawk.com, Barbara LaRue had a post about her favorite quotes. I read through it, enjoyed it, but then felt sad. “Why did you feel sad?” I’m sure you’re wondering. Well I tell you, so stop being so damn impatient. It made me sad because there are very few quotes in this world that inspire me to do anything but get angry. In fact, most of the world’s most popular “yearbook quotes” drive me up a wall. Because my life is such a rich, full cornucopia of happiness, I’ve decided to share my feelings (of hatred) on some of the more famous quotes I’ve heard in my life-time.
“Its kind of fun to do the impossible!” -Walt Disney
No its not, Walt. Its kind of not possible. That’s why the call it the “impossible”. Stop putting such unfair expectations on me. -Mike Krenek
“Of all the words of tongue and pen/the saddest are these/it might have been” -John Greenleaf Whittier
Oh I can think of quite a few sadder words, buddy boy. “We’re going to have to amputate”, “I value our friendship too much”, “I swear this has never happened before”, “The Bush Administration”, “Have you been drinking tonight, sir?”, “Directed by Tyler Perry”…I could go on and on. And just as a heads up, your middle name is SO pretentious. -Mike Krenek
“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll still land among the stars.” -Anon.
If you miss, you’re a failure. No matter where you land. -Mike Krenek
