I decided I should take a leaf out of her book and from now on sign off with a suitably intelligent sounding phrase. It didn't take me long to find one; it's been my favourite for years, ever since I watched Robin Williams in Dead Poets Society. Wow, guess I've been a Latin buff all along, who knew?
Each to their own though I suppose. For a more modern, distinctly un-Latin twist I rather like 'When the world slips you a Jeffrey, stroke the furry wall' as famously quoted by Russell Brand in 'Get Him to the Greek'. OK it sounds weird but basically it's saying when the world gets you down, find peace in the things around you. Strange but true! Not sure I'd hang that one on my wall but other favourites I have next to my desk are 'If you're going through hell, keep going' by Winston Churchill and I love this one my family gave me - 'To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world'. Aw shucks :)
In case you're wondering where I got the above picture from, it came from a brilliant website called 'Feed Your Soul' - it's so cool! I know absolutely nothing about art but I know what I like and here you can find a huge bunch of talented artists who are all nice enough to share their works of art online and allow you, me and everyone else to browse to our heart's content and download and print whatever we like for free. You can choose as many as you like, all it will cost you is the ink and the paper! Well worth a look and art lover or not, I guarantee you'll find something there that will make your day that little bit brighter.
TODAY I LEARNED: That you can talk about getting completely legless and still sound cool and intelligent! As long as you do it in Latin...
