Top Ten Thursday: quotes & memes

'mended heart'
This week's Top Ten Thursday is our top ten favourite quotes and/or memes. 

Favorite Quotes
These aren't necessarily my favorite quotes but I think they are wise sayings.

01/
"To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it."
― Kurt Vonnegut

02/
"Expect problems and eat them for breakfast."
― Alfred A. Montapert

03/
"I have decided to be happy because it is good for my health."
― Voltaire

04/
“I would always rather be happy than dignified.”
― Charlotte Bronte

05/
“In a time of destruction, create something.”
― Maxine Hong Kingston

Fake Memes
I have seen and done a lot of memes so I decided to make up some memes or rather, things to do for no good reason other then to waste time and be amused. Please note: Do these at your own risk.

06/
Walk around the mall or some crowded place and ask everyone you bump into, "Hey, aren't you the kid that used to eat glue for lunch?" It could be anything that might be fun to you or really, anything that make people think you're a bit off. Of course, they will deny it but you just go ahead and say "Sorry, my mistake," and smile at them before leaving.

07/
If you happen to look up at the sky and spot a plane or a bird or anything that moves – make a wish.

08/
On Mondays or any day that you are sure to hate, wear the silliest, brightest colored, not-so-stylish or any clothes that make you feel cheerful. 

09/
Whenever you're inside an elevator, think of something funny and just start laughing. If anyone stares at just, just keep on laughing.

10/
When you spot a penny or a coin in the ground, pick it up, check out the year on the coin and think of a good memory from that year or if nothing good happened that year, then spend the coin on something good.

Do you have any favorite quotes or something that you do out of habit or just for fun?

  3. What a wonderful collection, love both parts, but especially the second one! Beating the Monday gloom by wearing something cheerful sounds like good advice. For me it's usually a neon pink workout jersey for my Zumba class!

  4. Love your list Lissa but especially #1 and #5 - I think creativity is so good for the soul and making something is a bit like meditation for me. Have a lovely day.

  7. Your own list is soo fun and what a novel idea to do that with a coin! i love it!

    "Walk around the mall or some crowded place and ask everyone you bump into, "Hey, aren't you the kid that used to eat glue for lunch?""
    -That is hilarious. You really do have the most interesting yet fun humour! I would so love to see someone do that, let alone you!

  8. What is a meme anyway? I still don't really know.

    1. meme? I don't know, I think the word hasn't been used in a while because everyone uses 'challenge' or 'tag' or something else.

      that coin idea I had a while ago and I really like it so I mentioned it here.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.
