Tuesday Tidbits #138


Welcome to the limited series, Tuesday Tidbits. A collection of quotes to provide inspiration, determination, and elevation. I hope you find something that brightens your day!


I love the people in my life for being just who they are. But I love them most for who they make me want to be.

In order to forgive others, we must first be able to forgive ourselves.

If I had known I would live this long, I would have started lying about my age years ago.

All you need is an opportunity, and the courage to take it when it comes.

Sometimes I use the “Columbo” technique in conversation. I will purposefully stumble over a word, phrase, or idea allowing enough of a pause for the listener to interject what they think I am trying to say. Right or wrong in their perception, it does make them a part of the conversation and they become more engaged.

When a discussion reaches the point of raised voices, it has become a fruitless endeavor. Volume cannot win an argument.

I fear a world where science is given the back seat to rhetoric and untruths.


Now get out there and write something!

    Your ability to write these fabulous tidbits that make it hard to choose a favorite will never cease to amaze me!!

    I love them all, but I think I’m especially fond of the first one. The one about lying about your age made me laugh. With your tenacity and strength, you’ll live to see 100! I share your fears about science. I feel like the movie Idiocracy is becoming a documentary.

    I love these!!

    Lying about one’s age got me thinking about my grandma. She guarded her age like a classified government secret for the first 85 years. After that, she told everyone and took special pride in living for such a long time.

  4. Comment #1 could have come from me. That’s what I always said about the love of my life, that I like the person I was when I was with him because he always encouraged me to be more than I thought I could ever be.

    Wonderful collection. I love the “Columbo” approach to a conversation and will be taking every advantage to try it out.
