Quote of the Day

Hawkeye is me anytime I try to play a card game more sophisticated than Uno!

“I’m reminded of a story. You’ve probably heard it. The, uh, King and Queen of this country were playing golf with five clubs, when their son, Jack, remarked how strange it was they had only two hearts between them. Just then, Deucey and her little dog, Trey, started singing ‘Four Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.’ Whereupon the entire family beat her to death and buried her with two spades. Did you get it?…Well, I didn’t. What do I bid?” Alan Alda as Hawkeye Pierce in M*A*S*H

Quote of the Day–Independence Day

“‘Mankind.’ That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it’s fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom… Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution… but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: “We will not go quietly into the night!” We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on! We’re going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!” Bill Pullman as President Thomas Whitmore in Independence Day

This quote seems especially appropriate at the one-year anniversary of COVID-19 putting life on hold for so many:

“You know what they say here? ‘Live for now, for there may be no tomorrow.’ Not for me. I’ve got to live for tomorrow, because for me there’s no now.” Mike Farrell as B.J. Hunnicutt on M*A*S*H

Quote of the Day

“You know, Sis, it doesn’t matter whether you feel useful or not, when you’re moving from one disaster to another. The trick, I guess, is to just keep moving.” William Christopher as Father Mulcahy on M*A*S*H
