Peanuts Wisdom


Yesterday I was a dog. Today I'm a dog. Tomorrow I'll probably still be a dog. Sigh! There's so little hope for advancement....Peanuts......Snoopy

In twenty years time, I will probably still be working on the same faults, confessing the same sins!

Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, "Where have I gone wrong?" Then a voice says to me, "This is going to take more than one night."....Peanuts....Charlie Brown

Forever.

Sometimes when I get up in the morning, I feel very peculiar. I feel like I've just got to bite a cat! I feel like if I don't bite a cat before sundown, I'll go crazy! But then I just take a deep breath and forget about it. That's what is known as real maturity...Peanuts...Snoopy

Real maturity is going to Mass, praying, sharing song lyrics and Snoopy quotes, not thinking about things and then getting on with the (busy) day.

No problem is so big or so complicated that it can't be run away from!..Peanuts...Linus Van Pelt

True.

Wouldn't it be nice if our lives were like VCRS (video recorders), and we could 'fast forward' through the crummy times?...Peanuts

Except that the good and bad make it all good, make it life. We don't want to have a Click moment.

Or maybe we do, just once or twice.

To take back what we said, what we said in a moment of un-thinking, of lack of self control. Of tiredness.

But you can't.

You have to live with it, face the consequences.

We all have regrets. I wish I could take back some things I have said or done to loved ones.
