“Good news is rare these days, and every glittering ounce of it should be cherished and hoarded and worshipped and fondled like a priceless diamond.”
-Hunter S. Thompson
It is unfortunate that this quote has any truth to it. Any grain of good news is almost as rare as winning the lottery, and we know the odds on that. It just isn’t possible to turn on any news station and not get a healthy dose of incredibly bad news. Do I really need to know how much someone hates someone else, or who killed the old man in your neighborhood? No, I most certainly don’t.
So follow the advice of Hunter S. Thompson when he suggests that we fondle, caress and fully embrace every piece of good news that we get.
Who know? The last piece of good news you might hear might actually be the last piece of good news that you hear…Think about it…
I personally feel that this quote no longer holds merit on this planet. I have discovered a ton of wonderful good news, when I turned away from the main stream media, words of others, etc. and started listening to me, instead. 😀
