Revised: Visual Quotations

That old saying had to come from somewhere, correct? What old saying may you ask yourself. The true answer is that every saying has an origin. More importantly, we’re surrounded by these known phrases. Some regional while others are international. Since humans learned to speak and conceptualize the world  in their own way, these sayings have become apart of our communicative DNA.

I’ve been a sucker for quotes my whole life. Those one liners from the films and shows along with advertisements. You may hear people quote authors, scientists, actors, actresses, activists, athletes, heroes, villains, children, old people, random people, specific people along with–What I’m trying to say is that everyone has something to say. Some come and go while others stick around like shoulders.

With there being too many quotations to choose from, I went with an all time favorite by Star Wars character, Yoda who’s voiced by puppeteer  Frank Oz. I believe the phrasing was, “Do or do not, there is no try.” I’ve always liked this quote, because it’s a simpler way of saying, there is no half stepping, or all or none. On a side note, Frank is also the voice of Miss Piggy and Fozzie Bear from The Muppets but we’re not here for trivia or are we….?
