After a couple of hours in a local cafe with friends (yes there was a glass of wine involved) I have been catching up on the week’s worth of blogging and I found myself drawn once again to the meanderings of Lauren Holgate (@ ladaisi) by the catchy headline ‘You Are Not A Tree’.
Wondering what it all meant (as it is quite obvious I am NOT a tree), I read on to learn…
Brutal, cynical and to the point.
Is this really the one that struck a chord with me?
Some say platitudes are ‘crap’ but in my experience, they have an ability to sneak in through a chink in the armour when you least expect it. And now I’m starting to wonder what this might mean about me…and how I can, in my glass-half-full kind of way, define ‘stupid’ in a motivational and optimistic light.
‘Stupid is as stupid does’ (from inspirational tear-jerker, ‘Forrest Gump‘) is the only thing I can think of so it doesn’t bode well…
Thanks for the link-back!
I loved these quotes, too. And by the way, if you're not a member of Pinterest.com, you should join up. Dozens of pages of just such inspiring and sometimes cynical quotes!
The John Wayne one was among my top favorites as well. . . what can I say? There is something very cynical about me that enjoys a dry sense of humor.

Aha…very good Charlie Wade aka Sonic Hedgehog!
However, I would just like to reassure you that I am not paranoid.
Now would you please stop stalking me? (kidding!)
Reminds me of a Nirvana lyric that seems to pop up in my head from time to time.
“Just because you're paranoid, don't mean they're not after you.”
