Motivational Calendar – January

For those of you who don't have one, you can share mine. I think if I had to put up with it by myself it would kill me. These are the most depressing "motivational quotes I have ever heard in my life. Seriously, take a good look and think about each one. Just what about "If you aim at nothing you'll hit it every time." makes anyone want to be productive? BOCTAOE namely ummmm maybe the 20th? You will also notice that sundays have no quote. They share the same quote as saturday. Obviously the people who compiled this calendar deemed that the weekend is not important enough to merit two whole quotes. What kind of a world is this where the weekend is ignored?!

Here they are in their full, textual (and occasionally rhyming) glory.

  1. Great art picks up where nature ends.
  2. Be happy while you're living, you're a long time dead.
  3. You don't get harmony when everyone sings the same note.
  4. Children are the message we send to a time we will not see.
  5. Whether you think you can or you can't - you are right. note to self: don't feel depressed today or you're screwed
  6. The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking. whoa thanks, I almost thought for myself there...
  7. Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed.
  8. -.
  9. Sometimes even to live is an act of courage.
  10. Time engraves our faces with all the tears we have not shed.
  11. Dreams are only thoughts you didn't have time to think about during the day. get your nightmares out of the way by thinking about them all day.
  12. Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
  13. Much good work is lost for the lack of a little more.
  14. Experience is a comb that nature gives us when we are bald.
  15. -.
  16. If you're doing your best you won't have time to worry about failure.
  17. Faith is like a radar that sees through fog. faith is a radar that picks up invisible objects in broad daylight.
  18. I don't care how poor a man is; If he has family, he's rich.
  19. Forgiveness is a funny thing, it warms the heart and cools the sting.
  20. Friendship isn't a big thing - It's a million little things.
  21. If you don't know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere else. no shit sherlock. what would you care anyway, it's not like you had a destination in mind.
  22. -.
  23. A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds.
  24. If you aim at nothing you'll hit it every time. Have no goals and you may achieve it. Sorry, why am I at uni again?
  25. A grandmother is a babysitter who watches the kids instead of the television.
  26. Gratitude is the memory of the heart.
  27. Happiness is never stopping to think you are.
  28. Nothing is more fatal to health than an over care of it. clearly
  29. -.
  30. In about the same degree as you are helpful, you will be happy. hello, my name is Earl.
  31. You must be the change you wish to see in the world.

I hope this list was as intriguingly useless to you as it was to me. Tune in next month for such wonderful delights as: "Don't try to be different. Just be good. Good is different enough."
*bangs head against wall*

    "Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed."
    I love how the fundamental tenet of economics is now a motivational quotation. But how is that motivational? "There ain't enough stuff to go round" doesn't motivate me much, except perhaps to grab it all first, it's mine, it's mine!
    Oh well, I guess if you aim at nothing you'll hit it every time.

  4. Dreams are only thoughts you didn't have time to think about during the day
    that doesn't explain the dream i had where my shower was full of stage props. or another one where i went to get a parcel and my mother had sent me a rabbit.

  5. GOD

    Apologies, but I'm afraid the missing motivation is entirely down to me. You may think I look good for my age, but even six thousand years ago I had to rest up every once in a while. The whole universe creating thing really took it out of me, so I decided to take a break after a good week's work, and, well long story short the whole thing got completely blown out of proportion. So like the lady said about the days of the week underpants: "it's because of god." (And yes, I AM good. Thanks for noticing.)
