Monday Morning Quotes

The Monday Morning Quotes began in 1998; first thing each week I sent a quote to a small group of friends and allies as an inspiration for thought or even dialogue. Sometime in 1999, as the list of recipients grew, I started adding my own thoughts. By 2001, there were hundreds of people receiving the quote and my reflections each week. I will continue to add to the archive here from both directions-–newest ones and older ones. Dialogue is still welcome . . .

Quote #632 - Strange Little Life #StrangeLittleLife

18 Aug, 2014

"Of course it would be hard. But I remembered what my nurseryman grandfather used to say when I didn't want to go to school: half the work in the world was done by people who didn't feel so good today."

Rollo Romig

"You can't get much done in life if you only work on the days you feel good."

Jerry West

"I've got my strange little life to lead. Leading it the best I can--that's how I buy the ticket to where I want to be."

Dean Koontz

Don't always feel like doing what I gotta do.
But wanna be who I gotta be.
And who I gotta be means
I gotta do what I gotta do
even when I don't feel like it.

Yes, yes, I know,
for some that means putting on a face,
putting on a facade,
masking their feelings,
playing a role,
but that's not what I mean.

Yes, yes, I know,
for others that means shutting out who they are,
shutting down all their feelings,
becoming a soldier and muscling through,
but that's not what I mean either.

Do you know what I mean?
being who I am, even on the days that are hard,
the days that don't feel so good;
getting done what I absolutely have to
and whatever else I can;
being clear about what I can't;
being as forthright as the situation will allow;
making my way through to the next place
which will feel much better,
especially if this is the way I do it.

It's a strange little life, dear heart, I know.
It's your life,
your strange little life to lead.
Can you do it?
Can you be who you are
and do what'cha gotta do?
