Through all the various bits of research and messing around on Google I tend to come across some really good websites devoted to either brining good news or sharing smiles. In any case I thought it was about time that I shared some of these websites, all of which are definitely worth a look.
Here is a fellow blogger who I have reblogged in the past. The blog is a series of photos taken from all over the world
This is one of my all time favourite websites. It updates the posts every Sunday and is a collection of people’s secrets that are sent in. I believe them to be true and think that this is a lovely way to get things off your chest
Here is a website that a friend recommended to me a while back and it really is a little find. Some of the quotes are funny, others inspirational and others just plain funny- kind of how I hope this little blog will work out
This website isn’t actually quotes but stories from peoples life’s and some of them are very touching
Finally here is a website clearly made by someone who started off like me and sees the value of a good quote. This website has them all and I could not be more grateful

Myself and a few friends recently heard a quote and have been using it in everyday life. It’s a simple little phrase and we believe it answers pretty much every life problem we’ve been able to think of. It works for personal problems, issues with your looks, your friends, situations with boys and girls, problems to do with college and work. Just about everything.
Then another friend after hearing us using this phrase in the manner in which we do decided to call us up on it. Saying simply that one phrase cannot answer all life’s questions. Our response was “of course it can” Now stealing a few images from Memes pages across the internet I’ll give you it and let you judge for yourself.
Well reader, what’s your opinion? do you have a problem, sure few naggins, be grand

This week after spending an entire evening going through my favourite Disney Film quotes it felt only natural to devote an entire post to this fantastic genre in its own right. I found myself actually annoyed that it has taken me this many months before devoting a post to it. To begin with I’ve found the most inspirational and tear jerk moments from the best of the bunch. So here goes, tissues at the ready….*tear flick*
You think the only people who are people, are the people who look and think like you. But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger, you’ll learn things you never knew you never knew.
Take it from an old spectator. Life’s not a spectator sport. If watchin’ is all you’re gonna do, then you’re gonna watch your life go by without ya.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
The past can hurt. You can either run from it or learn from it.
The Lion King
A dream is a wish your heart makes when you’re fast asleep. In dreams you will lose your heartaches. Whatever you wish for, you keep. Have faith in your dreams, and someday, your rainbow will come smiling through. No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dreams that you wish will come true.
The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.
Ohana means family, family means nobody gets left behind. Or forgotten.
Lilo and Stitch
Reach for the sky!
Remember: Always let your conscience be your guide.
Reflect before you act.
If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you.
Winnie the Pooh
A lie keeps growing and growing until it’s as plain as the nose on your face.
Keep your chin up, someday there will be happiness again.
Things will look better in the morning.
The Jungle Book
Now for some of my favourites
I’m a stallion baby
Shrek 2– dedicated to Dave (he made me do that)
Just keep swimming, Just keep swimming
And I shall call you squishy and you will be my squishy
And in the morning I’m making waffles
Pumbaa: “It’s our motto.” Young Simba: “What’s a motto?” Timon: “Nothing. What’s a motto with you?”
The Lion King
Hey, look.”Esc-a-pay”. I wonder what that means? That’s funny, it’s spelled just like the word ‘escape’
So do you remember all these quotes from your childhood and would you be able to name all the characters that said them?

It’s that time of year again, that one fantastic week of the year that all the students in UCC get together as a group and in a lovely union of acquaintances and friends get really really drunk for a week straight. Oh and raise lots of money for charity doing so, don’t forget it’s all for charity. So in the spirit of the week that’s in it I’ve compiled a list of some of the best and funniest drinking quote for this week’s post.
“Beer doesn’t make you fat; it makes you lean…..against bars, tables, chairs and poles”
“It only takes one drink to get me drunk. The only trouble is I can’t remember if it’s the thirteenth of fourteenth drink”
“I feel sorry for people who don’t drink. When they wake up in the morning, that’s as good as they’re going to feel all day.”
Said by the one and only Frank Sinatra
“Get up and dance, get up and smile, get up and drink to the days that are gone in the shortest while.”
“The problem with some people is that when they aren’t drunk, they’re sober.”
William Butler Yeats – wise man
“The worse you are at thinking, the better you are at drinking”
“It is well to remember that there are five reasons for drinking: the arrival of a friend, one’s present or future thirst, the excellence of the wine, or any other reason.”
“Responsible drinking. Now that’s an Oxymoron.”
“I envy people who drink – at least they know what to blame everything on.”
“Here’s to alcohol: the cause of, and solution to, all of life’s problems.”
Homer Simpson – if we can’t listen to him then we can’t listen to anyone

The origins of this quote are at lot more historic that I first thought. It was first said by St Ambrose way back when in 387 A.D. When St. Augustine arrived in Milan, he observed that the Church did not fast on Saturday as did the Church at Rome. He consulted St. Ambrose, bishop of Milan, who replied: “When I am at Rome, I fast on a Saturday; when I am at Milan, I do not. Follow the custom of the Church where you are.” The comment was changed to “When they are at Rome, they do there as they see done” by Robert Burton in his Anatomy of Melancholy. Eventually it became “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.”
Now it can be used in daily contexts. It is specific to occasions when you participate in activities that are not usual to how you normally act. Situations that maybe you wouldn’t normally do, things that you may not even want to do….. Hence the sayings
“When in Rome, do as the Romans do”
So when is the last time you were in a situations where the saying was appropriate??
