A Thoughtful Reminder for the Weekend

One of my favorite quotes by Mark Twain is “Be good and you will be lonesome.”  Actually I have this quote on one of my pint glasses, which means that I adhere to his advice.  Have a wonderful and safe weekend everyone!

    Have a nice and enjoyable weekend, dear TBM! This was so nice. Thank you, with my love, nia

  3. The ice cubes really make the picture interesting 🙂 do you agree with this quote? It’s kinda depressing if you think about it though… 🙂

    • TBM says:

      🙂 I can see that point of view. For me, I view the quote as more playful, but I can definitely see the dark side of it as well. That’s one of the things I love about Twain. His humor is also social commentary and makes me think.

  4. You have a great weekend too TBM!! I am really looking forward to a long weekend here because Monday is a new holiday called Family Day, so it’s a 3 day weekend for me. Yayyyyy!!

  5. xandimusic says:

    Love Twain, love this quote, love you!

  10. Love the Mark Twain glasses. I think I should have some Hemingway etched on my wine glasses. Have a great weekend.

  11. T. F. Walsh says:

    I like that quote… hehe

  12. Jackie Cangro says:

    Twain has so many good one-liners.
    One of my favorites is: There are lies, damn lies and statistics. 🙂
    He knew how to put everything in perspective.

  13. “Be good and you will be lonesome.”

    Oh where has this quote been all my life? This should be stamped across my forehead. 😉
