Finding Wisdom in Unexpected Places

Sometimes you find a quote that speaks to you, and you say, "That's it! That's just how I feel and that's exactly how I would say it, too!" 

I came across this great post over the weekend over at the BOOK RIOT blog, entitled:

It was a brilliant piece of writing and, umm, diligent research, and reminded me of why I LOVE Calvin and Hobbes so so much... it also reminded me that I can go back and read them over and over, and keep finding new pearls of wisdom.

I'd forgotten this classic bit of dialogue:

Calvin: They say the world is a stage. But obviously the play is unrehearsed and everybody is ad-libbing his lines.
Hobbes: Maybe that’s why it’s hard to tell if we’re living in a tragedy or a farce.
Calvin: We need more special effects and dance numbers.

My life needs more special effects and dance numbers for sure.

But my all-time favorite Calvin and Hobbes quote I made into a painting years ago. It now hangs on my son's wall, reminding him to live each day to its fullest.

 I many need to do a companion painting now, with my new favorite Calvin quote. More special effects and dance numbers for everyone!

What's your favorite quote this summer?


  1. Calvin and Hobbes are wonderful and wise characters. :-) I think more special effects and dance numbers would be great!

  2. these are great! and love your painting---hmmmm quote, let me see---i guess, "everything will be alright in the end and if it's not alright it's not the end" :)
