— Reflections of an Pessimist —

Nagging hope only aggravates despair.

Blood is thicker than water, but less appealing.

Once upon a time money could not buy happiness.

It’s easy to be lulled into thinking that life is not strange.

Just because the shoe fits doesn’t mean you should wear it.

When everything is coming up roses, things get pretty thorny.

Beauty is only skin  deep as any flesh wound will demonstrate.

Marriage is a lot like bungee jumping,  often without the bungee.

If the sun does not shine today it probably wouldn’t have anyway.

The enemy of your friend is your enemy, unless you are a politician.

If you are saving for a rainy day, you have things turned around.

Confession is good for the soul; denial better for the ego.

If you think the glass is half full, yours was the top half.

He who laughs last obviously didn’t get the joke.

The trick to cheating death is an illusion.

Today could be the rest of your life.

Optimists die just the same.

Human being is a verb.

To  err  iss  hunam.

History must repeat itself because it mumbles.

Nothing is knowable for certain—but I’m not sure.
