Dusting Or Living
Poet: Julie Hebert, 2012

There are many people, in the world today,
That would rather clean, than go out and play.
They clean just in case, someone may arrive,
Not realizing those people, are out living their lives.

So much time wasted, on cleaning your house.
Wouldn't you rather be out on the town with your spouse?
Personally I would much rather, be out and about,
Then sitting at home, cleaning with doubt.

I have a life, in need of some play.
Who cares if my house, is not spotless each day?
A house is no home, unless its been lived in.
And living comes mess, from the floor to the ceiling.

So dust if you must, but remember this saying.
Life is too short, don't go wasting a day.
Old age will find you,
And it won't be discussed.
When you go as we all do, you'll make much more dust!

"Humor is so healing . . . and it's fun too." Anne Wilson Schaef
Humor Quotes

Poet: Nixon Waterman

Smile, once in a while,
'Twill make your heart seem lighter;
Smile, once in a while,
'Twill make your pathway brighter;
Life's a mirror; if we smile,
Smiles come back to greet us;
If we're frowning all the while,
Frowns forever meet us.
Give but a smile to sorry men,
They'll give it, bettered, back again.

Funny Inspirational Quotes

Try Smiling
By Poet Unknown

When the weather suits you not, Try smiling.
When your coffee isn't hot, Try smiling.
When your neighbors don't do right,
Or your relatives all fight,
Sure 'tis hared, but then you might Try smiling.

Doesn't change the things, of course- Just smiling.
But it cannot make them worse- Just smiling.
And it seems to help your case,
Brightens up a gloomy place,
Then, it sort o' rests your face- Just smiling.

By Poet Unknown

Like a bread without the spreadin'.
Like a mattress without beddin',
Like a cart without a hoss,
Like a door without a latchstring,
Like a dry an' barren creed bed-
Is the face without a smile.
Like a house without a dooryard,
Like a clock without a mainspring,
That will never tell the hour;
A thing that sort o' makes yo' feel
A hunger all the while-
Oh, the saddest sight that ever was
Is a face without a smile!
The face of man was built for smiles,
An' thereby he is blest
Above the critters of the field,
The birds an' all the rest;
He's just a little lower
Than the angels in the skies,
An' the reason is that he can smile;
Therein his glory lies!
So smile an' don't forget to smile,
An' smile, an' smile ag'in
'Twill help you all along the way,
An' cheer you mile by mile;
An' so, whatever is your lot,
Jes' smile, an' smile, an' smile.

"Beware of little expenses. A small leak will sink a great ship." Benjamin Franklin
Funny Quotes about Life

Poet: Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Smile a little, smile a little,
As you go along,
Not alone when life is pleasant,
But when things go wrong.
Care delights to see you frowning,
Loves to hear you sigh;
Turn a smiling face upon her,
Quick the dame will fly.

Smile a little, smile a little,
All along the road;
Every life must have its burden,
Every heart its load.
Why sit down in gloom and darkness,
With your grief to sup?
As you drink Fate's bitter tonic
Smile across the cup.

Smile upon the troubled pilgrims
Whom you pass and meet;
Frowns are thorns, and smiles are blossoms
Oft for weary feet.
Do not make the way seem harder
By a sullen face,
Smile a little, smile a little,
Brighten up the place.

Smile upon your undone labor;
Not for one who grieves
O'er his task, waits wealth or glory;
He who smiles achieves.
Though you meet with loss and sorrow
In the passing years,
Smile a little, smile a little,
Even through your tears.

"Laughter also provides a sense of well-being, contentment, joy, and boosts your spirit and the attitude of those around you." Sandra V. Abell
Attitude Quotes

Poet: Edgar A. Guest

Laughter sort o' settles breakfast better than digestive pills;
Found it, somehow in my travels, cure for every sort of ills;
When the hired help have riled me with their slipshod, careless ways,
An' I'm bilin' mad an' cussin' an' my temper's all ablaze,
If the calf gets me to laughin' while they're teachin' him to feed
Pretty soon I'm feelin' better, 'cause I've found the cure I need.

Like to start the day with laughter; when I've had a peaceful night,
An' can greet the sun all smilin', that day's goin' to be all right.
But there's nothing goes to suit me, when my system's full of bile;
Even horses quit their pullin' when the driver doesn't smile,
But they'll buckle to the traces when they hear a glad giddap,
Just as though they like to labor for a cheerful kind o' chap.

Laughter keeps me strong an' healthy. You can bet I'm all run down,
Fit for doctor folks an' nurses when I cannot shake my frown.
Found in farmin' laughter's useful, good for sheep an' cows an' goats;
When I've laughed my way through summer, reap the biggest crop of oats.
Laughter's good for any business, leastwise so it seems to me
Never knew a smilin' feller but was busy as could be.

Sometimes sit an' think about it, ponderin' on the ways of life,
Wonderin' why mortals gladly face the toil an care an' strife,
Then I come to this conclusion--take it now for what it's worth
It's the joy of laughter keeps us plodding on this stretch of earth.
Men the fun o' life are seeking--that's the reason for the calf
Spillin' mash upon his keeper--men are hungry for a laugh.
