Favorite Quote: On Relief

For fast-acting relief, try slowing down.

Who Said It:
Lily Tomlin

My Thoughts:
This reminds me. Why is it with all these advanced technological gadgets created to make life simpler, I'm busier than ever?

I want something to make life simpler! Slowing down HAS helped. Lily has that smile on that is so contagious....

Oh Michael, that's because they make gadgets for everything now and you have to carry them all around and use them and recharge them abd replace them when something new and better and more expensive comes along.
It's a plot, I tell ya!

So, I'm taking Lily's advice and

This is SO true. You're right. Every time a new gadget comes out we get busier and busier. I always have to remind myself that I DON'T have to answer that text message or email right away. And I DON'T have to take that phone call if I don't want to.


Sometimes I wish there were no cellphones, so we could enjoy actually living life.

Know what you mean Michael.
No way have tech advances resulted in time saving (sadly) and paper & pens still can't do without them ! :)

Deeper Daze said...

Because if you didn't have all those technologies you wouldn't be able to do as much =) so the more efficient you become the more you take on... and you're ridiculously good looking.


How very true!

Good point!

Jill said...

god, I know. I'm so sick of having to learn new technological crap. I wish my husband was tech-savvy.

Doug Goff said...

Awesome quote! And yeah all these gadgets have definitely made things more complex.

Gay Guy said...

I love Lily Tomlin. So funny and so smart.

I try to keep technology about making my life easier, not letting it run my life. I can let a phone ring. Even a cell phone. I have a friend who will try me on my land line, and if I don't answer, she'll call me right away on my cell. Just to say something that can wait. Makes me crazy.

I have friends who think that gay men are more technologically advanced than straight men, or at least early adopters. Any thoughts on that, anyone?

On Eartha Kitt's 1984 disco album "I Love Men" there is a song called La Grande Vie in which Eartha spells relief R.O.L.E.X " Pardon. Do you have the time? Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
