10 Good Things on a Monday (14)

Ten Good Things on a Monday is a fancy meme hosted by Nice Nina @ Brush Up on Your Reading!

Here's how it works:

  1. Think of a particular group of good things you want to make a list on, does not necessarily have to be about books, e.g. your current book wish list, or your favorite book foods (you know, foods you love to eat while reading, if you're like me), or your favorite girly names, whatever you can think of, as long as it makes you feel good.
  2. If you have no ideas for a list, you can always visit my blog post to check out my theme for that week and you can take a cue from my list.
  3. Post your list on your blog, grab that cute ARGH button above and put it on your post too, so we'd know you're doing this meme.
  4. Leave the link for your post on my own 10 Good Things post for the week, if you see others doing it, comment too and let's share our good things with everybody.
  5. Everybody goes through the whole week happy!

This week I am going to do my favourite 10 quotes by Lemony Snicket

1) "Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them." (Horseradish: Bitter Truths You Can't Avoid)

2) "Fate is like a strange, unpopular restaurant filled with odd little waiters who bring you things you never asked for and don't always like."

3)  "Reading is one form of escape. Running for your life is another."

4) "I suppose I'll have to add the force of gravity to my list of enemies." (The Penultimate Peril)

5) "If you are allergic to a thing, it is best not to put that thing in your mouth, particularly if the thing is cats." (The Wide Window)

6) "It is one of life's bitterest truths that bedtime so often arrives just when things are really getting interesting." (The Grim Grotto)

7) "When someone is crying, of course, the noble thing to do is to comfort them. But if someone is trying to hide their tears, it may also be noble to pretend you do not notice them."

8) "Love can change a person the way a parent can change a baby- awkwardly, and often with a great deal of mess."

9) "Just because something is traditional is no reason to do it, of course. Piracy, for example, is a tradition that has been carried on for hundreds of years, but that doesn't mean we should all attack ships and steal their gold." 

10) "One of the world's most popular entertainments is a deck of cards, which contains thirteen each of four suits, highlighted by kings, queens and jacks, who are possibly the queen's younger, more attractive boyfriends."

I love Lemony Snicket - some of these quotes had me literally howling with laughter.

Have a great week everyone. :D
