I love Quotes. I love them because they make me think. What does the quoter mean? Why did he/she write this? Is there a message to get through to the reader/the world? What did YOU initially think when you read it?
Here goes blog quote #106....
"Most people can do extraordinary things if they have the confidence or take the risks. Yet most people don't. They sit in front of the telly and treat life as if it goes on forever."
- Philip Adams-
Ok, who DOESN'T Love this quote?
Have you ever heard people say.. "Aahh I'll get to that tomorrow", or "Whats the rush" or Let's get together sometime"?
Pretty soon, tomorrow comes and you are busy doing something else life threw at you, or you aren't feeling so great or you get bogged down with work. A whole slew of others "things " can get in the way of doing whatever you were talking about doing, but put off for another day.
I read something this past week about the Annual fishing trip that some guy used to do with his buddies. He was in his late 50's and decided to pass saying he was "busy" but not to worry as ..he has another '20 years' to do the fishing trip. Think about this.. its an ANNUAL trip.. 1 time a year.. so in reality he only has 20 more times, not a "lifetime of 20 -30 more years", to do the trip.
Such is life and I believe Adams is so on the mark here.. we all treat life like we'll be here forever. NOT TRUE ! We get older, we get sick, we have a job transfer lose, accidents happen, we have triplets.. LIFE HAPPENS.. So whatever you want to do.. GET TO IT. Who knows when or how many times the chance to do "whatever" will come up again?
That's my view....... What say YOU?
