Friday Philosophy…Surprise

People have mixed feelings on surprises.

There are those of us who do not like the huge party-style “surprise” in which many people jump out yelling. With that being said, quiet surprises are a good thing. 🙂 And no screaming is involved!

“Surprise is the greatest gift which life can give us.” ~ Boris Pasternak

“I like the serendipitous surprises of reality.” ~ Lawrence Wright

“So enjoy, endure, survive each moment as it comes to you in its proper sequence — a surprise.” ~ Vera Nazaria

“The moments of happiness we enjoy take us by surprise. It is not that we seize them, but that they seize us.” ~ Ashley Montagu

“Expect nothing. Live frugally on surprise.” ~ Alice Walker

“Everybody keeps telling me how surprised they are with what I’ve done. But I’m telling you honestly that it doesn’t surprise me. I knew I could do it.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Blessings and pleasant surprises to you all. Never give up!
