Five sentences about life

Another Google search for other people’s homework —five sentences about life — has brought someone to Orange Crate Art. Game on:

Life is like a box of chocolates.

Life is one damn thing after another.

Life, like a box of chocolates, is one damn thing after another.

That’s life. That's what all the people say.
If the last two sentences aren’t familiar, Frank Sinatra will explain.

Homework-doers: do your own homework. That’s the way to learn something.

'Life is so peculiar' ...

sung by Louis Jordan & Louis Armstrong -

"Oh, life is so peculiar, the deserts only got sand.
The oceans only got water, you never know where you stand.
When I get out to dinner, there's nothing to wear but clothes,
Whenever I get sleepy, there's nothing to do but doze,
Whenever I get thirsty, there's nothing to do but drink,
Life is so peculiar that it makes you stop and think."

Thanks, Timothy!

YouTube has a performance of this song with Bing Crosby, Peggy Lee, Marge and Gower Champion, and Ida Moore.

I like that. I saw the word “homage” and thought “uh-oh,” but it’s really well done. Thanks for the link, Timothy.

Life... is like a grapefruit. It's orange and squishy, and has a few pips in it, and some folks have half a one for breakfast.

Family motto about Life:

Nothing the easy way.

Additional observations (some more original than others):

Time speeds up as you go along.

Life is what happens while you were making other plans.

Most of Life is just showing up.

Watch out what you wish for.

Thanks, Elaine. I recognize “Life is what happens . . .” (not word for word) from John Lennon’s “Beautiful Boy.”

Homework-doers, you should still do your own homework.
