Phrases I Like – An Oldie But Goodie

Posted by middlerage on October 27, 2012

Touchy feely week continues, here at Tea Time, with a nod to one of my favorite phrases. It was a very popular bumper sticker in the 90s, and I always admired it, but time makes all cool things passé. I think it deserves a mini-revival: Practice Random Acts of Kindness and Senseless Beauty.

Of course, I realize that most of my Phrases I Like are older than this gem, so my post title is just acknowledging that this phrase is clichéd and middleaged, just like me; not yet ready for a bona-fide antique license plate.

Don’t worry, I’ll be getting back on the rage wagon soon, and we’ll leave bleeding heart opinions behind. But for now, breath deep and practice some random kindness.

Also, shout out to Mark L for turning me onto a phrase for a good fit: I made that box real nice and Kentucky. Perhaps Ohio and Tennessee just have too large a margin of error?

les continuing list:

  • Practice random acts of kindness and senseless beauty
  • S/He’s busier than a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest
