Plain Talk

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

Andy Rooney

That made me laugh! I guess since no one else was around, I really meant it. :)

But it made me wonder. Are we most ourselves when no one else is around? I am shaped by the world around me, even to the extent that I try to influence it.

I think I'm pretty genuine most of the when I laugh with people, I mean it. Ha ha. See, that was genuine ;)

Excellent Quote - and so true!

But I'm an open, honest person, so I always mean what I do and what I say, even if people don't like it. ;o)

he must do his smiling while he's alone... you don't see much smiling while he's griping on 60 minutes... sometimes it is pretty funny though.

That is a great quote, and one that is typically Andy Rooney!

I find his vision of life so refreshing!

I always thought Andy Rooney had a way with wit and words. You picked out a great quote.... and yes, I did laugh out loud, and still am.

Hope you are having a great weekend!

Hey, I don't think I have ever seen Andy smile so I hope he does when he's alone :)
