That feeling when you actually get something you’ve been working towards:
“Well, I’m, uh, more the ‘I-don’t-mind-pushing-my-best-friend-into-but-I’m-scared-stiff-when-I-get-anywhere-close-to-it-myselfing’ kind.” Danny Kaye as Phil Davis in White Christmas
These famous quotes, which are inscribed at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial in Washington D.C., really had an impact on me when we saw them last summer.
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
This seems like a fitting quote for New Year’s Eve!
“Champagne is just ginger ale that knows somebody.” Alan Alda as Hawkeye Pierce on M*A*S*H
“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” Albert Camus
“Oh, short answer, ‘yes’ with an ‘if.’ Long answer, ‘no’ with a ‘but.'” Reverend Lovejoy on The Simpsons
“Sirs? I’m sorry I’m such a pain. It’s hard to be nice when you’re miserable.” Gary Burghoff as Radar O’Reilly on M*A*S*H

“Look, it is so simple. You can have a khaki pant that are chinos. You can have chinos that are khaki. But not all chinos are khaki, just like not all khakis are chinos, or even pants. Hell, you could have a khaki shirt or a hat.” Anne Ramsay as Lisa Stemple
