“That which does not kill us, makes us stronger.”
Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900)
While Nietzche’s words are true, I just felt he left a little something out so …
Addendum to his quote: “However it is also certain we will
get chewed up, quite a bit, during the process of survival
… stay away from the teeth!”
PL Howe, 2014
Everyone be careful, but have a great weekend. Remember to have some fun!

Lol. Very well said.
Thanks, learned the hard way, lol!
Those who learned the hard way develop lot of character and strength.
hahaahaha— bite marks build character. 😀
Have a great weekend, Penny!
In which case, just so you know, that means I am absolutely loaded with character! 😀 You also, a great weekend! xx
Penny: of course, that doesn’t preclude the need for booster shots. 😀
Ah yes, booster shots, They seem to come around on a regular basis! ha, ha! 🙂
Oh – That explains the few teeth marks on my body…
xo 🙂 🙂 xo
Scars of learning not to be so naive and trusting, also learning to watch our backsides too, RoSy! 🙂 xo
I believe this with all my heart Al
“That which does not kill us…
… had better run pretty darn fast”
I agree, we do become stronger, but at what cost? It will strengthen us in some ways, and weaken us in others.
Have a good weekend Penny. I will be out of touch over the weekend, blog wise. I’ve nearly finished scheduling posts for tomorrow, Saturday and the prompt for Sunday.
I hope your weekend is being a great one for you Alastair and that you are having lots of fun and enjoying yourself. I like your addendum also! 🙂 xo
Thanks very much Penny. I want to a friend’s wedding, he picked me up and took me there, as I couldn’t afford to go. He told me that as we have been friends for nearly 18 years, he was not going to have his wedding without me. So he did a 960 mile round trip. Twice. He did take me up a mountain afterwards though 🙂
Hi Alastair, Hoping it was a great time for you and that this week has been going especially well for you my so very special friend! 🙂 xo
Thanks Penny. Hope your week has been going great as well
How very true!
Sigh! (that was a big sigh, did you hear it Chris?) It is true in life isn’t it? xx
Absolutely. And yes, your sigh rippled across the ocean!
I’m sure Friedrich wondered the same somewhere along the way lol
I think you’re right Andy, I think he didn’t watch those teeth closely enough, alas! 🙂
Well, least someone will have learned from it lol
Quotes and your addendum reminded me of this one: You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear, and if you could it would probably smell bad! 🙂 Hugs to you Penny! Be well!
Hi Barb. That’s a great one! Love it. Hope your weekend has been going well for you my dear friend, hugs and love to you. 🙂 xx
Finally getting some sleep after chemo treatment. I hope that your weekend is good too and going well! Hugs and love – B
Thank you, Penny, for your inspirational thoughts. I hope to get stronger
You are becoming stronger, Yoshiko, with each passing day and experience that you conquer. Do believe this is true, my friend! xx
Indeed, Penny, I begin to feel it with God’s strength through your prayers 🙂
Love that foto. 🙂
It’s a great one isn’t it? 😀
Without reservation! 🙂
