The 07/23/13 Joy Jar

23 Jul

Moi got a mosquito bite and aside from cursing the thing, she started thinking about the order of things. This tiny thing can cause to focus on it and it can inflict not only pain and discomfort, but in some cases, death. It shows that no matter how small one is perceived to be, one can have an impact. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is the lesson that everyone and everything can have an impact.

If you think you’re too small to have an impact, try going to bed with a mosquito.
Anita Roddick

I believe more in precision, when you have the capability, like when you see a mosquito fly and you’re able to hit it, you’re able to hit it with a couple of short sharp shots… it’s a beautiful thing.
Alexis Arguello

If a mosquito has a soul, it is mostly evil. So I don’t have too many qualms about putting a mosquito out of its misery. I’m a little more respectful of ants.
Douglas Hofstadter

“The sun shines and warms and lights us and we have no curiosity to know why this is so; but we ask the reason of all evil, of pain, and hunger, and mosquitoes and silly people”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Probably the saddest thing you’ll ever see is a mosquito sucking on a mummy. Forget it, little friend.”
Jack Handy

“Mosquitoes remind us that we are not as high up on the food chain as we think”
Tom Wilson
