Weekend Quotes

I've got another blog post in the hopper but it wasn't ready to share before I headed off to my parent's lake cottage for the weekend. But I came across a few interesting quotes recently that I thought I'd share in the meantime.

Quote #1: I saw this on a bumper sticker: You may all be laughing at me because I am different. But I'm laughing at all of you because you're all the same.

Now that's not to insinuate that I sit around and laugh at others who aren't in wheelchairs, but I thought it was a good message that beckons people to think alternatively about all kinds of people who are different. It's an interesting phrase to chew on.

Quote #2: This comes courtesy of actor/rock frontman/spoken word artist Henry Rollins. I was watching the special features of some crappy DVD I rented through Netflix called 'The Devil's Tomb.' I think Rollins was asked if he brings anything different to the table when he does independent movies as compared to big budget studio movies. He said "I bring my 'A' game to the post office, I'm not messing around, life is too short!" I thought that was awesome. It gave me a little extra gusto pop to my own everyday outlook on various things.

Unrelated, I thought I'd also post
this interesting article written by a guy who had to spend a number of weeks in a wheelchair due to pelvis injuries. He chronicles his observations about life in a wheelchair. Welcome to my world sir, relatively speaking.
