‘n Paar mense se opinies

Elbert Hubbard (1859 – 1915)

Life is just one damned thing after another.

Sigmund Freud (1856 – 19390

All that matters is love and work.

Carl Gustav Jung (1875 – 1961)

As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.

Sören Kierkegaard (1813 – 1855)

Life must be understood backwards; but…it must be lived forwards.

Benjamin Disraeli (1804 – 1881)

Youth is ablunder;

Manhood is a struggle;

Old age is a regret

Life is an incurable disease.

en my gunsteling

van ‘n 1934 fliek : You’re telling me

It’s a funny old world – a man’s lucky if he gets out of it alive.

One day, when a seamstress was sewing while sitting close to a river, her thimble fell into the river. When she cried out, a fairy appeared and asked, ‘My dear woman, why are you crying?’ The seamstress replied that her thimble had fallen into the water and that she needed it to help her husband in making a living for their family.

The fairy dipped her hand into the water and pulled up a golden thimble set with sapphires…
‘Is this your thimble?’  she asked.
The seamstress replied, ‘No..’

The fairy again dipped into the river and held out a golden thimble studded with rubies.
‘Is this your thimble?’ she asked.

Again, the seamstress replied, ‘No.’

The fairy reached down again and came up with a leather thimble .
‘Is this your thimble?’ she asked.

The seamstress replied, ‘Yes.’

The fairy was pleased with the woman’s honesty and gave her all three thimbles to keep, and the seamstress went home happy.

Some years later, the seamstress was walking with her husband along the riverbank, her husband fell into the river and disappeared under the water. When she cried out, the fairy again appeared and asked her, ‘Why are you crying?’
‘Oh, my husband has fallen into the river!’

The fairy went down into the water and came up with George Clooney.
‘Is this your husband?’ she asked the woman.
‘Yes,’ cried the seamstress.

The fairy was furious. ‘You lied! That is an untruth!’

The seamstress replied, ‘Oh, forgive me. It is a misunderstanding.  You see, if I had said ‘no’ to George Clooney, you would have come up with Brad Pitt. Then if I said ‘no’ to him, you would have come up with my husband. Had I then said ‘yes,’ you would have given me all three.  I’m not in the best of health and would not be able to take care of all three husbands, so THAT’S why I said ‘yes’ to George Clooney.

And so the fairy let her keep him.

The moral of this story is:   Whenever a woman lies, it’s for a good and honourable reason, and in the best interest of others.

Toe ek nou my e-pos oopmaak, is daar weer so baie gemors dat ek gesukkel het om die belangrike boodskappe van die res te onderskei.

Voetstoots toe sommer ‘n klompie delete en ampertjies hierdie ook gemis.


Wife: I wish I was a newspaper, So I’d be in your hands all day.
Husband: I too wish that you were a newspaper, So I could have a new one every day.
***********************************************************  
Doctor: Your husband needs rest and peace. Here are some sleeping Pills.
Wife: When must I give them to him?
Doctor: They are for you, so he can have his rest and peace.
***********************************************************

 Wife: I had to marry you to find out how stupid you are..
Husband: You should have known it the minute I asked you to marry me.

Kan nie glo dat dit met my kon gebeur nie

Suid-Afrika alweer in die spervuur.

Augustus 23, 2011 in Sonder kategorie

Internasionale nuus is oor die algemeen vir my veel interessanter as die plaaslike nuus. ek gooi daagliks so vinnige ogie om te sien wat oral aangaan.

Totdat hulle weer iets soos hierdie kwytraak. 

Die artikel gaan in sy geheel oor die haglike toestande waarin arbeiders van die Suid-Afrikaanse wynbedryf hulle bevind

Ek glo daar is nog arbeiders wat nie te watwonderse behuising het nie. 

 

Weet egter nie van die volgende stelling nie.

“I spoke to a worker who has been living in a pig stall with his family for more than 10 years,” HRW’s Kaitlin Cordes told the BBC.

Boonop is dit ook nog geklassifiseer as ‘n top story.

Het een van julle al gehoor van Susanne Eman, ‘n formidabele vrou iewers in Arizona?

Haar ideaal is om haar gewig meer as te laat verdubbel, wat sy wil bereik deur 20 000 kalorieë per dag te eet.

Sy weeg tans 330kg met ‘n mikpunt om 730kg te bereik.  Meer onnatuurlik as dit het ek lanklaas gehoor of gelees.

Sy word beskryf as hit among fans of ‘super size big beautiful women’,

En sê van haarself: ‘The bigger I get, the better I feel. I feel more confident and sexy. Why shouldn’t I push the limits and see how fat I can get and stay healthy? I’d love to find out if it’s humanly possible to reach a tonne.’

daardie deeltjie van  “……and stay healthy”, din ek het sy alreeds oorskry, siende dat sy alreeds nie meer self kan beweeg nie, maar gebruik maak van ‘n gemotoriseerde tipe van scooter.

hierdie is ‘n roofkopie van iemand anders se slimmigheid
No English dictionary has been able to explain the difference between the two words ‘complete’ and ‘finished’ in a way that is so easy to understand. Some people say there is no difference between COMPLETE & FINISHED but there is:
When you marry the right one, you are COMPLETE.
And when you marry the wrong one, you are FINISHED.
And when the right one catches you with the wrong one, you are…..
COMPLETELY finished

na ‘n heerlike sonnige dag vroeër hierdie week.

vanaf gister weer pure winterweer.

Nuus

Augustus 17, 2011 in Sonder kategorie

Die nuus maak my soms vies, soms opstandig en ander kere bekommerd.  Maar nuus lees en kyk ek – heel dikwels net die hooftrekke op TV. 

So het ek gehoor van ‘n Japanese student wat die afgelope naweek oor die afgrond van die Niagravalle gegaan het.  Haar voet het gegly toe sy van ‘n posisie wou afklim waar sy nie behoort te gewees het nie.   Wat ‘n aaklige gedagte.  In die soektog na haar liggaam, is ongeïdentifiseerde liggaam van ‘n man onder die valle gevind. 

Vanoggend oor die radio het ek egter ‘n nusie gehoor wat my kliphard laat wonder het.  Die syfer vir diefstal by OR Tambo lughawe is dubbel wat die wêreld standaard is.

Wêreld standaard 3 uit elke 10 000

Hier plaaslik 6 uit elke 10 000.

Waarom op aarde moet daar ‘n wêreldstandaard vir misdaad wees?
