Favorite Quote: On Going to Work


Quote:
Some people see things that are, and ask, "Why?"

Some people dream of things that never were, and ask, "Why not?"

Some people have to get up and go to work and don't have time for all that.


Who Said It:
George Carlin

Aww Carlin. That's a great line. Welcome back, Mister Rivers.

Awesome quote by one of my favorite comedians. Good to see you back Michael!

Susan Erickson said...

yes, not everybody has time....but those with a curious mind....do make time. George was going for a laugh and I'm sure he got it. There is that other old quote, " necessity is the mother of invention!"

I saw George for the first time when I was 13 at a one man show on Long Island. I'd never heard of him, but friends had and invited me. I thought he was hysterical. I'm sure 80% of his humor went over my head, but what I understood made me a Carlin fan for life.

I do have the time to ask WHY?! whenever I have to get up early to go to work. And I get some extra time with the long commute.
