“All the world’s a stage and most of us are desperately unrehearsed”  

Sean O’Casey

 

Okay, maybe I don't agree with "all" of this quote as it also references "most" when "some" might be more appropriate but the message needn't totally be dismissed, right? Quotes can make us think. . .

Michael, what a great quote, and does make you think.   Not every situation has been rehearsed, so makes sense.

Michael,

I think Kat Palmiotti makes a good point about "unrehearsed".  And this quote came to mind as I read your post. "Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death"The famous quote from "Auntie Mame" (1958) with Rosalid Russell.

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 - your words have much to say about the many eyes watching us.  Not that I am overly fearful of conspiracies.

 

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS - I can understand how that could be interpreted.

 

Brian England - I prefer to think there is a certain power we have when we accentuate the positive.

Joan Cox - true.

 

Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! - you first.  My karaoke skills are best in my "head" as not to disturb others.  

 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel - a well-staged comment.

Michael Jacobs - So many thoughts are swirling in my head that need not be divulged except to say what I loved about chidren's plays is that (rehearsed or insufficiently rehearsed) they were all little darlings who tried hard to please. Giving them all a round of applause was robust from everyone who came to see the performance.

Michael:

That quote certainly makes one think...about times rehearsal is important, but those time when there isn't an opportunity and that's OK. Impromptu can be good.

Enjoy your weekend!

Oh I would agree with "most" are unrehearsed.

So many twists and turns and levels to the game of life. Nobody could be rehearsed for it all. It is the lessons that life offers that make us ready for center stage!

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP - any live performance(but especially when children are the *stars*) can be rather endearing on many levels.

 

Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! - do you think Mojito Mixmaster Brian England has some extra special ingredients???

 

Jeff Dowler, CRS - the world is a big place with lots of players.

Michael Jacobs - little darlings are endearing and cute but when they are adults without preparation and everyone (like the whole world is watching) as if they were on stage (not a dress hearsal), it's rather pathetic, especially if it is involves leadership at the highest level.

Sharon Tara - interesting how that works at times, isn't it??

 

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® - some versus most(or all) seems better(maybe even best).  

 

Lise Howe - darn scene changes.  And it seems they occur at the last moment.

Michael, after 25 years in this business, pretty much it has already been rehearsed, so I just go for it!

I could use a little more time in the rehearsal phase of life.  It is just we don't always know what we have to rehearse for.  Life is so full of surprises!

Raymond Henson, eXp Realty - you're right, life presents a lot of "spur-of-the-moment" and "thinking-on-your-feet" moments.

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS - situations and timing certainly play a role in looking at quotes.  At least I think so.
