Laughter is one of the best antidotes to depression and the book  “Colemanballs” provides just that. The cricket season has begun (surprise it’s not raining) so here are a few quotes from the gentile world of cricket.

Florence and friends

This is Florence, my jam jar.
She is full of inspiration and
on rainy days when things are looking bleak
or I feel a bit down, or I need motivation
or just when I feel like it
I delve in and pick out one of the tickets
Upon which are written things like;

  • A friend is the one who comes in when the world has gone out.
  • Many people will walk in and out of your life. But only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.
  • There are people whom one loves immediately and forever. Even to know they are alive in the world with one is quite enough.
  • A friend is one who knows all about you and likes you anyway.
  • A friend is a gift you give yourself.
  • If I had a single flower for every time I think of you, I could walk forever in my garden.
  • The best time to make friends is before you need them.
  • The language of friendship is not in words, but meanings.
  • My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me
  • How rare and wonderful is that flash of a moment when we realise we have discovered a friend.
  • The world is not filled with strangers. It’s full of other people just waiting to be spoken to.
  • Happiness isn’t the easiest thing to find, but one place you’re guaranteed to find it is in a friend’s smile.
  • Be slow in choosing a friend, slower in changing.
  • There are no goodbyes for us. Wherever you are, you will always be in my heart.

So on rainy days when things are looking bleak
or you feel a bit down, or you need motivation
or just when you feel like it
delve in and pick out a ticket.


Florence returns with hope and love

This is Florence, my jam jar.
She is full of inspiration and
on rainy days when things are looking bleak
or I feel a bit down, or I need motivation
or just when I feel like it
I delve in and pick out one of the tickets
Upon which are written things like;

We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

*

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Others stay awhile, make footprints on our hearts and we are never, ever the same.

*

Hope is the most exciting thing in life and if you honestly believe that love is out there, it will come. And even if it doesn’t come straight away there is still that chance all through your life that it will.

*

Two lives, two hearts joined together in friendship united forever in love.

*

Hope is the dream of a soul awake.

*

Never shall I forget the times I spent with you; continue to be my friend, as you will always find me yours.

*

Hope is faith holding out its hand in the dark.

*

Do not use a hatchet to remove a fly from your friend’s forehead.

*

Hope is the feeling that the feeling you have isn’t permanent.

*

To the query, ”What is a friend?” his reply was ”A single soul dwelling in two bodies.”

*

Hope is knowing that people, like kites, are made to be lifted up

*

Friends will keep you sane, Love could fill your heart, A lover can warm your bed, But lonely is the soul without a mate.

*

So on rainy days when things are looking bleak
or you feel a bit down, or you need motivation
or just when you feel like it
delve in and pick out one of the tickets

Spread your wings…..

I always wonder why birds choose to stay in the same place when they can fly anywhere on earth-

Then I ask myself the same question.

How rare and wonderful is that flash of a moment when we realise we have discovered a friend [William Rotsler]

It only takes a moment to say “I love you” but it will take me a lifetime to show you how much.

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember amateurs built the ark. Professionals built the titanic.

The thing that is really hard, and really amazing is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself. [Anna Quindlen]
