Quotes Part 9

Ahhh…the final set of quotes for the year.  I thought I’d do a holiday theme.

“Celebrate the happiness that friends are always giving, make every day a holiday and celebrate just living! – Amanda Bradley

“How many observe Christ’s birthday! How few, his precepts! O! ’tis easier to keep holidays than commandments.” – Benjamin Franklin

“If all the year were playing holidays, to sport would be as tedious as to work.” -William Shakespeare

“The holiest of all holidays are those kept by ourselves in silence and apart; the secret anniversaries of the heart.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“I once wanted to become an atheist, but I gave up – they have no holidays.” – Henry Youngman

“Symbolizing eternal hope, the wreath goes ’round and ’round, And where it starts or ends cannot be found. Woven of things that grow – for life, and hung for holiday delight The wreath must be left in place From Advent through Twelfth Night.” (Don’t know who said this.  I don’t have that written down.)

“I do come home at Christmas. We all do, or we all should. We all come home, or ought to come home, for a short holiday – the longer, the better – from the great boarding school where we are forever working at our arithmetical slates, to take, and give” – Charles Dickens

“Holidays – Have no pity” – Eugenio Montale

“At this time of the year, with the holidays upon us, nothing says she cares about how I am, where I am and what I’m doing as much as the restraining order” – Randy Saint (Gotta love this guy’s name)

“The one thing I remember about Christmas was that my father used to take me out in a boat about ten miles offshore on Christmas Day, and I used to have to swim back. Extraordinary. It was a ritual. Mind you, that wasn’t the hard part. The difficult bit was getting out of the sack. – John Cleese
