I love Lucy!

She’s full of eternal wisdom, wit and wile…

Here are a few words from her to lift your mood and make you smile…


1. “I cured myself of shyness when it finally occurred to me that people didn’t think about me half as much as I gave them credit for. The truth was, nobody gave a damn… When I stopped being a prisoner to what I worried was others’ opinion of me, I became confident and free.”


2. “Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.”


3. “I’m not funny. What I am is brave.”


4. “It’s a helluva start, being able to recognize what makes you happy.”


5. “The secret to staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age.”


6. “Once in his life, every man is entitled to fall madly in love with a gorgeous redhead.”


7. “I’d rather regret the things I’ve done than regret the things I haven’t done.”


8. “Luck? I don’t know anything about luck. I’ve never banked on it and I’m afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else: Hard work – and realizing what is opportunity and what isn’t.”


9. “Knowing what you cannot do is more important than knowing what you can do. In fact, that’s good taste.”


10. “The more things you do, the more you can do.”


11. “In life, all good things come hard, but wisdom is the hardest to come by.”


12. “You won’t be happy, whatever you do, unless you’re comfortable with your own conscience. Keep your head up, keep your shoulders back, keep your self-respect, be nice, be smart. And remember that there are practically no ‘overnight’ successes.”


13. “I don’t know how to tell a joke. I never tell jokes. I can tell stories that happened to me… anecdotes. But never a joke.”


14. “I have an everyday religion that works for me. Love yourself first, and everything else falls into line.”


15. “One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn’t pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself.”
