Jenny: My followers know I do not believe in time. It is an arbitrary creation by human beings to measure stress. I removed my watch in 1987, and I never looked back.

Nice quote. Thought provoking.

Ummm...Mrs. Matlock? (PJ raises her hand)

Ummm....Sue wrote a limerick about you this week.

Ummm...She thinks she's so smart...I mean...ummm..she's so smart.

Ummm...if she happens to fall down on the playground, I didn't do it.

Ummm....I wrote a limerick too....for extra credit.

Ummm...it's about you.

Ummm...My inspiration? Oh, it was something about "Nantucket" I heard my older brother reciting....



There was an old woman from A Z
who was anything other than lazy.
She was always so busy
Her life in a tizzy
No wonder that woman was crazy.

I think when you stop learning you might as well crawl under a rock!

Thanks for sharing this quote. When I first began the last stages of my bachelor's degree the catch-phrase was "becoming a life-long learner." I was too naive to understand really what they were talking about, but I do now! :)

Sue said...

PJ is such a tattle tale!

And she DID SO push me. Honest.

I had to look it up. I had no idea who he was.
PJ and Sue crack me up!~Ames

edenhills said...

That is a wonderful quote. I know lots of people who fail to enjoy the present because they are reliving the past and worrying/dreaming about the future.

Well, after posting to A-T for nearly a year, today I learn that Ms Jenny herself participates! Then I take this opportunity to thank you for hosting a delightful meme and for faithfully stopping by each time I participate.

One of my favorite Johnson quote is: What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.

Have a fine weekend, Jenny.
