Susan's Thursday morning note March 5, 2009 Snoopy Quotes
Good morning! This is a fun e-mail to write, going through Peanuts, Charlie Brown, Lucy, and Linus quotes. And the timing is perfect, for my sister, Julie, loves Snoopy & she had a little girl less than 12 hours ago. Her fourth little girl that is now bundled in pink in Wyoming. For my first ever dedication, here’s to you, little Tessie Bay! Welcome to this world! Here is my quote from Snoopy just for you!
“Why can’t we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together? I guess that wouldn’t work. Someone would leave. Someone always leaves and then we have to say good-bye. I hate good-byes. I know what I need. I need more hellos!” Welcome, little beautiful Tessie! Such fun to say you’re here!!! You have three sisters that can’t wait to bring you home and dress you up – their new live doll! Here’s a quote by Linus on sisters: “Big sisters are the crab grass in the lawn of life.”
Here are other quotes that I can’t resist adding to this note. Have fun reading them! And have a great week! Susan
Snoopy: Dear IRS, Please remove me from your mailing list. Just remember, once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed. My life has no purpose, no direction, no aim, no meaning, and yet I'm Happy. I can't figure it out. What am I doing right? Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It's already tomorrow in Australia. Exercise is a dirty word - Every time I hear it, I wash my mouth out with chocolate. If I were given the opportunity to present a gift to the next generation, it would be the ability for each individual to learn to laugh at himself. Wouldn't it be nice if our lives were like VCRs, and we could 'fast forward' through the crummy times? Lucy: I never made a mistake in my life. I thought I did once, but I was wrong. Try not to have a good time...This is supposed to be educational. Charlie Brown: I've developed a new philosophy...I only dread one day at a time. I have a feeling that when my ship comes in I'll be at the airport. That's the secret to life...replace one worry with another. There must be millions of people all over the world who never get any love letters...I could be their leader. This is my depressed stance. When you're depressed, it makes a lot of difference how you stand. The worst thing you can do is straighten up and hold your head high because then you'll start to feel better. If you're going to get any joy out of being depressed, you've got to stand like this. Linus: No problem is so big or so complicated that it can't be run away from! There is no greater burden than great potential. The only real way to look younger is not to be born so soon. - Quote by Charles Schulz. Therapy session with Charlie Brown (patient) and Lucy (therapist): Charlie Brown: What can you do when you don't fit in? What can you do when life seems to be passing you by? Lucy: Follow me. I want to show you something. See the horizon over there? See how big this world is? See how much room there is for everybody? Have you ever seen any other worlds? Charlie Brown: No. Lucy: As far as you know, this is the only world there is, right? Charlie Brown: Right. Lucy: There are no other worlds for you to live in, right? Charlie Brown: Right. Lucy: You were born to live in this world, right? Charlie Brown: Right. Lucy: WELL LIVE IN IT THEN! Five cents, please.
Too fun! We all have a little bit of each of them in us, don’t we? Have a great day and weekend – the weather is fantastic! It will be easy to take Lucy’s advice & LIVE today, won’t it?!?!?! I hope you can run in soon – and I hope even more that I’m working when you do! Susan
