Laughs and Love

Dear Reader,

Happy Valentine’s Day!

One year ago today, it was evident that a virus was coming, but little did we know that it would linger for so long. Last year around this time, I was fortunate enough to visit Newport, Rhode Island (more here). Along the water, the wind was bone chilling, and the small town, perfect for a summer getaway, did not have much in the way of winter attractions. Regardless, Newport was a nice mini vacation and an important reminder to enjoy opportunities as they come.

Today, in 2021, we are spending Valentine’s day right here in Boston. While it can be easy to be bummed out that we are staying home over the long weekend (it’s President’s Day tomorrow), I’m taking this day to be grateful for all that I have. Who knows what next year will bring? Flood? Famine? …ALIENS??? Given the plague that we have witnessed and continue to endure, I would be sad, but not shocked if greater tragedy were to befall us in 2022…. However, I tend not to think that way; I’m an optimist. So, instead of pondering doom and gloom, I wanted to share with you some funny quotes (i.e. non-lovey-dovey ones; I’m not a Hallmark card) to help make everyone feel a little better on this Valentine’s Day:

Below quotes from:

“Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence in society.”

—Mark Twain
Newport, RI (more here)

“I want my children to have all the things I couldn’t afford. Then I want to move in with them.”

—Phyllis Diller

“Never follow anyone else’s path. Unless you’re in the woods and you’re lost and you see a path. Then by all means follow that path.”

—Ellen DeGeneres

“I walk around like everything’s fine, but deep down, inside my shoe, my sock is sliding off.”


“I haven’t spoken to my wife in years. I didn’t want to interrupt her.”

—Rodney Dangerfield

“There is no sunrise so beautiful that it is worth waking me up to see it.”

―Mindy Kaling, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?

“A good rule to remember for life is that when it comes to plastic surgery and sushi, never be attracted by a bargain.”

—Graham Norton

Wishing you love and laughs this Valentine’s Day, dear Reader!
