I used to keep track of deep, thoughtful, witty, or just plain cool quotes that I came up with. Here’s one that I remember:
“I stopped thinking outside the box years ago. Too many people are already searching for what’s outside the box. Instead, I open the box, marvel at what it holds, then hold it up above my head and say ‘Hey! Lookie what I found!'”
And a new one:
“Why is life so miserable when so little goes wrong? Are we so used to the relative perfection that we experience every day that the minor problems in life become devastating?”
I’ll be keeping a list of Parkerisms here, under their own category.
