Keeping life in perspective


Today, The Porch simply lists a few quotes that can help us keep ourselves – and life – from becoming too serious. We need to pause at times just to keep our sanity. Much of life can be explained through country and western music and its lyrics, so here is one song quote that sets the stage:

“I’ve always been crazy, but that keeps me from going insane.” from I’ve always been crazy by Waylon Jennings

So, here you have it:

4. “Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.” – Mark Twain
