    Hi Shawn,

    Hope all is well with you today. Every week i always look forward to received quotes from you. And today seems it’s loaded, i love it! Thanks for not forgetting sending one or three for me(lol) 🙂

    In stupidity quotes, i like this most, “I am patient with stupidity but not with those who are proud of it. -Edith Sitwell

    I can tolerate stupidity at some extent, cause i am also stupid sometimes (are you?)(lol) human as we are you know, bound with some imperfection. And it’s fun being stupid sometimes, gee! but not all the times.

    But to those who are wearing proud of it,oh damn!

    Anyways, have a great weekend Shawn! God bless you and your family.

      I know what you mean, Sally. Yes, I do consider myself to be pretty stupid and I remember all my dumb mistakes…and I make many every week. But I’m trying to be better and I fully admit them. Whereas some people seem to either be proud of their stupidity, or worse: they pretend they’re not stupid when you catch them at it!

    Hello Shawn,

    They say that stupidity is a lack of understanding, the ability to be reasoned with and a poor ability to profit from experience. Some people are so bent on being right they will not listen, hence the reason they make the same mistakes. Not sure if that is stupidity or just plain stubbornness, smile!

    These quotes made me smile, thankyou for sharing. Favourites 8,11, 13,17…..
    I also have some to share.

    I never apologize.
    I’m sorry, but that’s just the way I am.

    – Homer J. Simpson

    One bright morning…
    in the middle of the night,
    two dead boys came out to fight.
    they stood back to back
    and faced each other
    drew their swords
    and shot each other.
    the deaf policeman heard the noise
    and came to kill
    those two dead boys.
    If u dont believe my story
    its true ask the blind man he saw it too!

    – Nicole*

    A day without sunshine is like night.

    – Unknown

    dont look at me in that tone of voice

    – spanky

    I hate when I wish on a star only to realize afterward that I just wished on an airplane.

    -unknown

    Have a great day!
