Embracing Reality With a Sense of Humour
Ash to ash and dust to dust; yup that is what we reflected on yesterday, Ash Wednesday. Since it is now Lent, how about some quotes on the reality of our human condition, seen through a humourous lens of course; it wouldn’t do to be morbid and depressing about reality. As my kids say, ” It is what it is, right?” You can’t do anything about reality except embrace it with a wry sense of humour.
If I had no sense of humor, I would long ago have committed suicide. Mahatma Gandhi
