Fat Bottom Girl Said What

When my ass talks, people listen.

Serendipity

“If you want to improve, be content to be thought foolish and stupid.”  –Epictetus 

I just caught the end of the movie “Serendipity” tonight, and one of the characters refers to the above quote in the movie.  I don’t remember ever hearing it before when I’ve watched the movie, but my ears must have been open to hearing it tonight.  There’s many things I could say about the movie, and the theory of serendipity, but I just can’t tonight.  I am already sad because I am here alone, as my son is with his father and not sitting here on the floor playing Legos.

So, I am just going to leave you with some more quotes from Epictetus, as he must have been a very smart dude!  I guess that’s why he was a philosopher.

“There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.”

“What concerns me is not the way things are, but rather the way people think things are.”
