There are a few things my husband tends to say or quote over and over. And over. Let’s call them Walterisms. One of them is a quote from Marcus Aurelius. Aurelius was a Roman general and emperor known for his stoic philosophy and many believed he wrote his philosophy before going to war. The quote my husband favors is: “Abide always by the first impressions and add nothing of your own from within.” My husband is a bit of a nerd but so am I. I learn a lot from him. Although I am not big fan of stoic military philosophy, I admit that going with your first impression is usually well-served. In return, I teach my husband about things I enjoy such as flowers. He can now correctly identify crocuses and pansies. 🙂
Here are 3 other Walterisms:
- Happy as a gopher in soft dirt.
- As right as the mail.
- Fine as frog’s hair. (Have you ever seen a frog’s hair? It’s mighty fine).
One day, my husband will make a wonderful grandpa. 🙂
