I’m not an optimist, nor a pessimist. When life gives me lemons, I squeeze a bit of juice for my favorite pasta recipe and throw the rest away. People can make their own damn lemonade. I don’t even like lemonade.

I guess I’m a snarkimist.

When I’m being pelted by lemons, I find quotes that make me feel better and show the lemon-thrower what’s what.

So here’s a couple of quotes that give me strength and humor today. Share them with your own lemon-thrower.
