Floating like a butterfly
This quote from Muhammad Ali has been making me smile all day.... “I wish people would love everybody else the way they love me. It would be a better world.”
So much so that I went to look up some of his other quotes. How about:
"A man who views the world the same at fifty as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life."
"I hated every minute of training, but I said, ''Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.''
"Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth. "
But it's this one I love the most. I'm not sure why, or if I even understand it, but I just know muttering it to myself every time I'm frightened is going to change my life:
"Superman don't need no seat belt."
See. It works already. Cor, I have a party coming up next week that I was dreading. But hold on to your hats, people, Superman is going to be floating through. Don't need no seat belt either.
(Although in the interests of health and safety, and before any one writes in, I will point out that I do clunk-click every trip, just not when I'm travelling by cape ....)
