Rising with the Daily Sun

Good Morning East Tennessee!

This light-hearted morning column is to start your day with a smile. You should probably save the wars and politics for after your brain wakes up and give yourself some time with your coffee and your favorite PJs (the ones with the feet are very cute). I can see you there with your elbow on the desk, your chin in your hand and your eyes halfway opened. I know it's a delicate situation, so I'm going to save the troubles of the world for later and wake up with you.

People love quotes because they're short and profound. It's amazing that some folks say more in one sentence than others say in an entire lifetime. Short simple quotes are perfect for the attention span, and, if you can find a few with some profound humor, you have the perfect recipe to start your day.

"I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I'm saying." Oscar Wilde

"Dogs have owners. Cats have a staff." unknown

"If the phone doesn't ring, it's me." Jimmy Buffett

"Love makes the world go round and alcohol makes it go around twice as fast." Compton Mackenzie

"Nothing is more embarrassing than watching someone do something that you said couldn't be done." Sam Ewing (That's dedicated to someone I used to know)

"My work fascinates me. I can stare at it for hours." Jerome K. Jerome

"Those who think they know everything are very annoying to those of us who do." Terry Marchal

"If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then give up. There's no sense in being a damn fool about it!" WC Fields

"If we don't succeed we run the risk of failure." Dan Quayle

"Sometimes you're the windshield; sometimes you're the bug." Mark Knopfler

"A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle." Gloria Steinem

Have a great day folks.
