In a Bad Mood?

“A hundred times I was upon the point of killing myself; but still I loved life. This ridiculous foible is perhaps one of our most fatal characteristics; for is there anything more absurd than to wish to carry continually a burden which one can always throw down? to detest existence and yet to cling to one’s existence? in brief, to caress the serpent which devours us, till he has eaten our very heart?”

The most important decision you make is to be in a good mood. --- Voltaire

I think Lady Gaga just puts glue on herself and rolls around on random things.

The Twitter account which reportedly posted it in January 2012 is an Orlando Bloom spoof/fan account, thus its repeated mis-attribution to good ol’ Legolas. I managed to find the same quip on a greeting card dated April 5th, 2011, so it’s certainly been out there a while. Regardless of the source, it’s still funny, considering
