I feel like I'm going to be struck by lightening.

I have some issues with this man. 

I didn't used to. 

This is a new development that has been brewing the past few days. 

It all began when I added another quote of the day to my Google homepage. I had always had a quote of the day, but I added a new one. . . and this is more a quote of the second because a new quote will pop up every time I refresh the page. 

I have been loving it. There are so many amazing things that people have said.

Some not amazing thing people have said. . . 

"My life is my message"
"The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong."
"You can't shake hands with a clenched fist" (My mom and I tried this, you CAN. Also, my mom brought up the classic, "terrorist fist jab")
"Where there is love there is life"

Okay, so do we see how all of the things are stupid? 

Yes, these are all things that Gandhi said.

Like, who decided these were such wise quotes? Last time I checked, they were all stupid. 

And still, these things get printed on notebooks, pens, stickies, shirts, mugs, calenders. . . etc. . .

I'm basically a horrible person now. 

Stay tuned for: Mother Teresa, Mother Shmaresa

Well, for a minute there I thought you were dissing Ben Kingsley, and I was going to come in here with guns blazing and set you straight.

But then, I realized you meant Ghandi.
