He will be missed…

I often on a Sunday night would try to catch at least the last ten minutes or so of 60 Minutes, just hear the cantankerous voice and gruff opinions of the indomitable Andy Rooney, a guy who’s inspired and made me think my entire life.  He was a household name and at the ripe age of 92 he passed away due to complications from surgery. He retired from CBS in late September of this year.  Shit! The world feels like a different place knowing this old dude is gone.  Here’s a link to the Times Global article and full story.

And now a few great quotes in honor of this cool journalist:

“If dogs could talk, it would take a lot of fun out of owning one.”

“Anyone who watches golf on television would enjoy watching the grass grow on the greens.”

“Computers make it easier to do a lot of things, but most of the things they make it easier to do don’t need to be done.”

“Happiness depends more on how life strikes you than on what happens.”

“I didn’t get old on purpose, it just happened. If you’re lucky, it could happen to you.”

“If you smile when no one else is around, you really mean it.”

I smiled as I typed out all these quotes…and no one else was in the room…thanks Andy! 🙂
