Screw Calm and Get Angry


      While I was in New York, I stumbled in a Barnes and Noble bookstore, because my brother had requested a specific book for his souvenir. The B&N excursion turned out to be fruitful one for me as well since while swerving around bookshelves I found this beauty. The title Screw Calm and Get Angry perfectly suited my mood and I bought it without hesitation. It's full of clever, sarcastic and witty quotes by random more or less famous people and today I thought I'd share a couple of my favorite ones. Hopefully they'll amuse you just as much as they did me.

If we see light at the end of the tunnel,
it's the light of the oncoming train.
(Robert Lowell)

One of the symptoms
of an approaching nervous breakdown
is belief that one's work is terribly important.
(Bertrand Russell)

By working faithfully eight hours a day,
you may eventually get to be a boss
and work twelve hours a day.
(Robert Frost)

Hard work never killed anybody,
but why take a chance?
(Edgar Bergen)

Only two things are infinite,
the universe and human stupidity,
and I'm not sure about the former.
(Albert Einstein)

The only reason
some people get lost in thought
is because it's unfamiliar territory.
(Paul Fix)

Half the world is composed of idiots,
the other half of people clever enough
to take indecent advantage of them.
(Walter Kerr)

Wise men talk
because they have something to say;
fools because they have to say something.
(Plato)

It is better to keep your mouth closed
and let people think you are a fool
than to open it
and remove all doubt.
(Mark Twain)

How fortunate for leaders
that men do not think.
(Adolf Hitler)

    1. I'd never pick up a Keep Calm book, but a book that says get angry - in a second. Apparently.:)

  13. Beautiful pictures!! Grandpa's house again? =)
    Nice quotes, I had seen most of them sometimes but the last one... I think you have put this Adolf Hitler one at the end because it sounds so dramatic... And "the end" (Hitler). Haha I haven't ever seen this one but scares me a lot. In fact, intelligent people... or very stupid people and how the smart ones make them do anything (better now) scares me a lot.

    By the way, you are so pretty in this mini-suit, like an aggressive-too hot-executive =)

    1. Aaaand!! omg! thank you for your one thousand comments =) =)
      - I agree, lady gaga has phenomenal boobs and a great body (even out in the middle of a forest growling)
      - I heard something about "The Artist is Present" but now you've told me i will find and watch more =)
      - And finally... you lied to me! Mark Knopfler in your town?? With someone you know?? It's incredible!!! I like his music a lot but is my boyfriend who is in love... it's like his father or grandfather or something. He plays the guitar too. I think nothing in the world would be such amazing as meeting him ^^

      I thing that's all haha!

    2. You're absolutely right, Hitler's was the last for impact.:) But it's a good one and oh so true...

      And yes, grandpa's house again.:D

  14. OMG i can't believe that last one is Hitler! I feel bad for laughing in recognition at a quote by ADOLF HITLER!!! lol. Awesome post, i loved a lot of these quotes. It's a shame there aren't any by a woman, but that's typical of a book of quotes :( if you wanna hear something a woman said usually you have to buy a specific 'girl quotes' book, which just fucking sucks.

    You look awesome in those pics by the way, love the short-suit!! :D

  15. Lol, these quotes suit your humour and wit perfectly. In fact I think I made reference to the 'light at the end of the tunnel' quote in my last post - you must have been laughing!

    Girl you look super chic and bang on trend with this shorts suit - I love it. I wonder if I could get away with it with my chunky legs - very professional looking photos. I must consider a Nikon!
