A little irony

I was amused to see the topic of today’s Friday Five, because a short time earlier, I had chosen this quotation to print up and post in the office kitchen today:

Looking for and enjoying beauty is a way to nourish the soul.
The universe is in the habit of making beauty.
There are flowers and songs, snowflakes and smiles,
acts of great courage, laughter between friends,
a job well done, the smell of fresh-baked bread.
Beauty is everywhere.
— Matthew Fox
It just sang in my heart this morning. Yesterday’s was a fun one:

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems,
but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
— Herm Albright (1876 – 1944)
