With Love from (and thanks to) The Grass Stain Guru

I didn’t see this post (with this sweet photo) from The Grass Stain Guru until late last night, but it’s too good not to share the day after Valentine’s Day:

Life is short.
Break the rules,
Forgive quickly,
Kiss slowly,
Love truly,
Laugh uncontrollably,
And never regret anything that made you smile.

– Mark Twain

Even better than a Wordless Wednesday!

    I’ve heard the “dance as if no one’s watching” part, and didn’t know (and am still not convinced!) that it comes from the same poem or quote or whatever. And I can’t imagine James Dean saying that, but one never knows. I guess we should take it from the quote and not sweat the small stuff:)

  2. Po says:

    A lot of attributions for this quote, and nonattributions too, via Google, e.g.,

    Life is short, break the rules (they were made to be broken)

    Don’t sweat the small stuff,
    You are who you are meant to be,
    Dance as if no one’s watching,
    Love as if it’s all you know,
    Dream as if you’ll live forever,
    Live as if you’ll die today”
    ― James Dean
