“Enjoy yourself… The years go by, as quickly as a wink. Enjoy yourself, It’s later than you think”

Art of Quotation

As a birthday gift to myself I’m taking a blog-free holiday for the remainder of 2019. Wishing you all the best of the rest of this year and depart singing along to this tuneful reminder:

“You never go to night clubs and
You just don’t care to dance
You don’t have time for silly things
Like moonlight and romance
You only think of dollar bills
Tied neatly in a stack
But when you kiss a dollar bill,
It doesn’t kiss you back”

Song quotes from “Enjoy Yourself“, 1949. Recorded by Guy Lombardo and Louis Prima

Music written by Carl Sigman and lyrics by Herb Magidson.

Enjoy Yourself, (It’s Later Than You Think)

You work and work
For years and years
You’re always on the go
You never take the minute off
Too busy making dough
Someday you’ll say
You’ll have your fun
When you’re a millionaire
Imagine all…

“the only thing which makes it possible to regard this world we live in without disgust is the beauty which now and then men create out of the chaos… they paint… they compose… they write…”

Art of Quotation

“I have an idea that the only thing which makes it possible to regard this world we live in without disgust is the beauty which now and then men create out of the chaos.

The pictures they paint, the music they compose, the books they write, and the lives they lead. Of all these the richest in beauty is the beautiful life. That is the perfect work of art.”

W. Somerset Maugham, book quote from The Painted Veil, 1925
