Quotation for Saturday 18th April 2020

Good morning everyone,

Whilst searching for today's inspiration I came across a gap in my own knowledge.

I'd never even heard of the man whose quote I have chosen and it looks like quite a serious oversight.

Booth Tarkington is quite a name to conjure with in its own right, and he won two Pulitzer prizes for Fiction in the company of only two other people. So I have some research and learning to do!

But anyway, this quotation of his is something I can say without hesitation is absolutely true, having now reached older age. The glorious thing is though, that if you are still young, this isn't something you have to consciously remember to do. If we are lucky enough, our brains will do most of the job for us.

"Cherish all your happy moments; they make a fine cushion for old age".

And even now, when you may not think it's possible, in the midst of all the anxiety and chaos, you will experience moments of happiness and pleasure that later you'll recall with pleasure.

Have a great day! ๐ŸŒธ

That's really good Callendersgal , no truer word was spoken. And your knowledge is very inspiring :)

I pick up on your sentence about " cherish your memories, they make a fine cushion for old age" Been talking to an older family member who is in Australia now about things we did in our twenties. Nice to know we can still recall those poor but happy times when a cream cake for tea on pay day was a luxury, so was coal to have heat :) Did not just flip a switch and hope we could pay at the end of the quarter. Oh well nice to go off the health issues for a change. Thank you for distracting our minds.

I'm happy if I can help do that sometimes katieoxo60. There's something so lovely about talking and laughing over shared old memories. ๐ŸŒˆ

Hello Callendersgal. Hope your keeping well and sane lol. I have found Captain Toms story inspiring. And watching the new video with Michael Ball this morning with Tom. Singing the inspiring You,ll Never Walk Alone. Brings a lump to my throat. Take care Brian xx

A lovely quote
