15 Quotes by Penny Marshall

Penny MarshallThe late film director, producer and actress Penny Marshall was a great talent and I’m sure she’s missed by all who knew her well.

Penny Marshall rose to fame in the 1970s with her role in the hit US television sitcom Laverne & Shirley.

Playing the role of Laverne DeFazio, she was funny and she created a character that has proved to be one of the standout comedy characters from the golden age of situation comedy.

If you’re not familiar with Laverne & Shirley then you can purchase this sitcom on DVD from Amazon. Alternatively there are plenty of clips available on YouTube to give you an idea of how good it was back in the day.

You might also find this ABC News tribute to Penny Marshall well worth a couple of minutes of your time:-

In recent years there has been an improvement in the availability of opportunities for women, particularly in show-business. And that’s how it should be of course.

However we have to admire those strong and talented women from previous generations who managed to succeed at their chosen profession, despite a system that was rigged against them. And in Penny Marshall women had a great role model.

She managed to become a successful director of films, an area of entertainment which is still heavily dominated by men to this day.

She was clearly a very smart lady. So here are 15 quotes by Penny Marshall which reflect her personal philosophy.

15 Quotes by George Orwell

As George Orwell he was and he still is widely respected as a novelist, essayist, journalist and critic.

So here are 15 quotes by George Orwell that are I think guaranteed to make you think dear reader.

  4. If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear. ~George Orwell

5 truly inspirational quotes

Truly Inspirational QuotesWe can all use a little inspiration occasionally, I’m sure you’ll agree dear reader. So here are what I beleive to be 5 truly inspirational quotes.

Truly Inspirational Quotes:

Before you speak ask yourself if what you are going to say is true, is kind, is necessary, is helpful. If the answer is no, maybe what you are about to say should be left unsaid. ~Bernard Meltzer

Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired, and success achieved. ~Helen Keller

In a president, character is everything. A president doesn’t have to be brilliant. He doesn’t have to be clever; you can hire clever. You can hire pragmatic, and you can buy and bring in policy wonks. But you can’t buy courage and decency. You can’t rent a strong moral sense. A president must bring those things with him. He needs to have, in that much maligned word, but a good one nonetheless, a vision of the future he wishes to create. But a vision is worth little if a president doesn’t have the character – the courage and heart – to see it through.  ~Peggy Noonan

If you have made mistakes, even serious ones, there is always another chance for you. What we call failure is not the falling down, but the staying down. ~Mary Pickford

Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them and every day begin the task anew. ~Saint Francis de Sales

21 thought-provoking quotes about relationships

People; often we feel that we can’t live with them but we can’t live without them either.

While they can be frustrating we are social animals, so we need people and relationships.

The more we understand about relationships the more likely we’ll be in a position to form and sustain successful relationships.

Hence today’s blog post with 21 thought-provoking quotes about relationships to help you ponder and improve your understanding of one of life’s trickier aspects.

Now some people struggle to form successful relationships, whilst others seem to enjoy perfect relationships all the time. Well don’t be fooled by appearances.

All relationships can be tricky because we all have this romantic notion about what the perfect relationship should look like. That notion may be romantic but it’s also inaccurate.

Perfect relationships don’t exist.

Consequently relationships take time, effort and compromise. We must work at them constantly to keep them healthy and beneficial.

Furthermore we must recognise that for a relationship to work it must be balanced. The dynamics within the relationship must be in equilibrium.

By that I mean that within any relationship both parties must feel their needs are being met.

Where the dynamic within a relationship favours one side or the other then this breeds resentment and frustration. That in turn results in friction and disharmony within the relationship, which can be damaging of course.

No one can have it all their own way all the time. Compromise is essential.

However compromise shouldn’t be to the point whereby you’re actively working against your own interests.

It would never make sense to do anything that works against our own interests. If we don’t look after our own interests, then no one else will.

So here are those 21 thought-provoking quotes about relationships, I hope you find them interesting dear reader.

Quotes about relationships:

  1. A dame that knows the ropes isn’t likely to get tied up. ~Mae West
  2. When you don’t talk, there’s a lot of stuff that ends up not getting said. ~Catherine Gilbert Murdock
  3. When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are. ~Donald Miller
  4. The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much and forgetting that you are special too. ~Ernest Hemingway
  5. For there to be betrayal, there would have to have been trust first. ~Suzanne Collins
  6. Cheating and lying aren’t struggles; they’re reasons to break up. ~Patti Callahan Henry
  7. I suffer from girl-next-door-itis where the guy is friends with you and that’s it. ~Taylor Swift
  8. I want to be in a relationship where you telling me you love me is just a ceremonious validation of what you already show me. ~Steve Maraboli
  9. Relationships don’t always make sense, especially from the outside. ~Sarah Dessen
  10. Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike. ~JK Rowling
  11. It’s no good pretending that any relationship has a future if your record collections disagree violently or if your favourite films wouldn’t even speak to each other if they met at a party. ~Nick Hornby
  12. The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed. ~CG Jung
  13. There is greatness in doing something you hate for the sake of someone you love. ~Shmuley Boteach
  14. Every couple needs to argue now and then. Just to prove that the relationship is strong enough to survive. Long-term relationships, the ones that matter, are all about weathering the peaks and the valleys. ~Nicholas Sparks
  15. I know enough to know that no woman should ever marry a man who hated his mother. ~Martha Gellhorn
  16. People like to say love is unconditional, but it’s not, and even if it was unconditional, it’s still never free. There’s always an expectation attached. They always want something in return. Like they want you to be happy or whatever and that makes you automatically responsible for their happiness because they won’t be happy unless you are. I just don’t want that responsibility. ~Katja Millay
  17. To say that one waits a lifetime for his soulmate to come around is a paradox. People eventually get sick of waiting, take a chance on someone and by the art of commitment become soulmates, which takes a lifetime to perfect. ~Criss Jami
  18. Every couple have their ups and downs, every couple argues and that’s the thing; you’re a couple and couples can’t function without trust. ~Nicholas Sparks
  19. If a girl starts out all casual with a guy and she doesn’t tell him that she wants a relationship, it will never become a relationship. If you give the guy the impression that casual is okay with you, then that’s all he’ll ever want. Be straight with him from the start. If he gets scared and runs away, he wasn’t right for you. ~Susane Colasanti
  20. Women cannot complain about men anymore until they start getting better taste in them. ~Bill Maher
  21. What we wait around a lifetime for with one person, we can find in a moment with someone else. ~Stephanie Klein

5 philosophical quotes about getting old

Philosophical quotes about getting oldMost people worry themselves silly when they think about getting old. However let’s face it, getting old is better than the alternative.

Yes, as we get older we get more aches and pains and we slow down a little. That’s natural. However for me the idea of getting old is really just a state of mind.

And what do I mean by that statement?

Well we’re all getting older every minute of every day but do we have to get old? I think it’s all down to our personal philosophy.

By that I mean, it’s all down to how we look at things. As long as we can retain an enthusiasm for life and embrace all things new then we’re not old at all. Older yes, but not old.

Old is when you’ve had enough of life and you’re ready to embrace the Grim Reaper.

And I hope for you dear reader that will be a long, long way off.

In the meantime, here are 5 philosophical quotes about getting old to help you put it all into perspective.

Philosophical quotes about getting oldPhilosophical quotes about getting old:

Anyone who stops learning is old, whether twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young. ~Henry Ford

We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing. ~George Bernard Shaw

Middle age is when you’re sitting at home on a Saturday night and the telephone rings and you hope it isn’t for you. ~Ogden Nash

The old believe everything: the middle-aged suspect everything: the young know everything. ~Oscar Wilde

I am not sure exactly what heaven will be like, but I know that when we die and it comes time for God to judge us, he will not ask, ‘How many good things have you done in your life?’ rather he will ask, ‘How much love did you put into what you did?’ ~Mother Teresa

15 Quotes by Martin Luther King Jr

Quotes by Martin Luther King JrSynonymous with the civil rights movement in the United States, the late Martin Luther King Jr was its most visible spokesperson and leader.

He was one of the most influential figures of all time, I would argue, and his dignity and philosophy are all the more impressive given the unjust treatment people like him experienced at that time, and often still do.

Quotes by Martin Luther King Jr:

  1. I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear. ~Martin Luther King Jr
