Just a short one today, linking up to #WednesdayWords on the blog Crazy With Twins.
One of my favourite quotes comes from the film, “Harvey” (the original one, with James Stewart, *not* the remake). The quote is a short monologue by the main character, Elwood P. Dowd (played by Stewart) and is on the subject of smart vs. pleasant:
“Years ago, my mother used to say to me, she’d say: ‘In this world, Elwood,’ she always used to call me Elwood. ‘In this world, Elwood, you must be oh, so smart or oh, so pleasant.’ Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. And you can quote me.”
I would take pleasant over smart any day.
