Quotes As If I’m Relevant #32

For those of us with big hearts and an internet connection, social media is a colosseum for us to combat each other in a never-ending battle for healing.

From the convenience of home we lose not life and limb, but our souls and our time. Since when did we forget that battle creates wounds, not heal them?

Quotes As If I’m Relevant #31

We continue to be relentlessly myopic in our good intentions — taking action to our future’s ruin.

A Joke Too [Annoying] to Be Funny #6

A man walks into a bar, orders his beer, flips his coaster over to the blank side and gets out a pen.

He asks the bartender, “Do you agree that this is a coaster?”

The bartender replies, “Yes.”

The man draws a house on the coaster and asks, “Do you agree that this is a house?”

The bartender, confused by the line of questioning, replies hesitantly as he serves the man his beer, “Yes…”

The man places the beer on the coaster with the house drawing and asks his final question, “Do you agree this beer is on the house?”

The bartender, now growing impatient, snaps, “Of course it is, what’s with all of these non-sensical questions?!”

The man raises his glass and exclaims, “I love this bar! Cheers!”

Quotes As If I’m Relevant #27

We scoff at primitive ancient societies for sacrificing life and limb to the gods for a good harvest.

I wonder if the future will scoff at us because we sacrifice our health, time with our families, and our morals & ethics for a good income?
