Quote by Rodney Dangerfield
I was such an ugly kid - When I played in the sandbox, the cat kept covering me up
This quote humorously highlights the perception of the speaker as an unattractive child. The phrase "the cat kept covering me up" suggests that even animals found them unpleasant to look at. It serves to convey a lighthearted self-deprecating tone, implying that the speaker was deemed so unappealing that even a cat would prefer to hide them from view. The quote overall communicates a humorous reflection on the speaker's childhood appearance and evokes a sense of amusement or playful self-acceptance.
We catch on to the truth and technique of expectation in those rare moments when we are stirred by an awareness of a guidance seemingly higher and greater than our own, when for a little while we are taken over by a force and an intelligence above and beyond those commonly felt. Confident and free, filled with wonder and ready acceptance, we permit ourselves to be taken over by our unquestioning self.
Truth to me was dead, God had never lived, life was full of pain, and death was the end of life. As a young Atheist, I sincerely believed that man had created God to fill the gaps in knowledge that would never be spanned by experience, reason, or science. In 1983 the God who pursues those who deny him interrupted my existence, he captured my soul with raw love. Two decades later, God's tangible friendship still amazes me. To deny his existence I'd have to first deny my own.
There is a criterion by which you can judge whether the thoughts you are thinking and the things you are doing are right for you. The criterion is: Have they brought you inner peace? If they have not, there is something wrong with them -- so keep seeking! If what you do has brought you inner peace, stay with what you believe is right.
