Amusing Musings – The following quips, while amusing, can also get us to thinking about how full our lives really are.

  • Some see a glass half empty. Others, a glass half full. I just see that someone forgot to put his glass into the dishwasher upside down and we’ve talked about this, [Steven].” – “Tim Siedell (@badbanana)
  • “Some people see the glass half full. Others see it half empty.  I see a glass that’s twice as big as it needs to be.― George Carlin
