"Quote of the Day" Elbert Hubbard

Ms. Dominique tweets her "Quote of the Day

God will not look you over for medals, degrees or diplomas but for scars.― Elbert Hubbard 

“I can honestly say that there are few inspirational quotations that give me more hope than this one. It’s as if Mr. Hubbard (husband to Old Mother H. maybe?) sat down and wrote these lines to fit me personally.

“Just now I was checking in the mirror for scars, and I found the tiny scar from where I had my nose job ten years ago (I didn’t always have this cure little Irish-looking nose) and found it, barely visible, next to my right nostril. 

“Then, of course, I have a few scars from where they lasered off the varicose veins—not to mention the scars from my tummy-tuck (one of my editors paid for this) and my appendix removal.

“Also, I have a few scars left from when they lasered off the tattoo of our golden retriever (originally it was inked with brown henna on my shoulder blade, and then later tattooed—for real—until I broke up with that bastard poet—I think his name was Hummer or some suchand he kept the dog!)

"And getting that tattoo hurt like hell....

"Anyway, I have lots of scars and feel particularly close to E.H. for this insight on faith.”

"Quote of the Day" 2pac Shakur

Ms. Dominique tweets her "Quote of the Day"

No matter where I go, I see the same hoe -- 2pac Shakur 

“Many people (mainly white people) are unaware of the profound depths and beauty of Tupac Shakur’s music.  His lyrics express his deep love for others, and especially the way he values the beauty and intelligence of women.

“It is also true, though few people knew it, that Tupac had a deep and abiding love for Princess Diana.  Really. He worshipped her from afar. Mainly because he couldn’t go to England because of various legal restraints.

“It was in his musical tribute to her, called 

The Love Song of Tupac Shakur

that he fully expressed the depth of his love for her.


“This song is the story of a forbidden love. Like in Romeo & Juliet, you have the lovers 2pac Shakur, the L.A. rapper, and Princess Diana, the English royal.

”There are poignant moments and romantic verse in this song, as for example the beautiful couplet where Tupac says to the Princess,

            spread Ur grace, on my face

”Yes, I'm sure you are now wiping away a tear, as am I.”

"Quote of the Day" Pope John Paul II

Ms. Dominique tweets her "Quote of the Day" :

Stupidity is also a gift of God, but one mustn't misuse it.--Pope John Paul II

"Yes stupidity is a rare and precious gift. God was very generous with His gifts and He is especially profoundly generous with this one.

"Just today one of my old boyfriends sent me a text message suggesting that I return the diamond bracelet he gave me for X-mas. Goodness, doesn't he realize that I already returned it to the jewelry store for a refund (using the receipt he, rather stupidly, left in his wallet).

"Yes Stupidity is a flowing and bountiful gift. And so is Faith, Hope and Charity. Maybe my old boyfriend should have more charity. He has plenty of the other stuff."

"Quote of the Day" Princess Diana

Ms. Dominique tweets her "Quote of the Day" :

If you find someone you love in your life, then hang on to that love. ― Princess Diana

"These are the inspiring words of the late Princess Diana. I have taken these words to heart and thought about them and re-read them, and someday I may even try to memorize them.

"They are perhaps not as memorable as her last words, which were: 'My God. What's happened?' But they are still inspirational in a very saintly way. Not like the last words of Mother Teresa, which were 'Who took my rosary? The Holy Father gave me that rosary. One of you lazy c**ts has my rosary.'

"Anyway, I've always looked to Princess Di as an inspiration. Finding a super-rich Arab boyfriend is, as you might guess, high on my To Do List. But that part about dying in a spectacular car crash--not so much."

"Quote of the Day" Mother Teresa

Ms. Dominique tweets her "Quote of the Day" :

Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. ― Mother Teresa, Holy Lady and Raconteur

"Everyone deserves a smile. And smiles are a cheap way to help people. A smile is free, and it's a reflection of the worth of the person you are smiling at.

"As I traveled in India, following the path of Mother T., I saw the poor, the sick, and the helpless. and I thought: 'Wow, there are a whole lot of poor people here. Maybe we should do something for them. Like give them food and clothes and medicine.'

"But then I thought of the example set by Mother Teresa. Yeah, a smile and a prayer--these are the gifts that really matter. Why waste money on food and clothes and medicine. God has given them the greatest gift of all--Poverty--which is a very Spiritual & Holy gift. Why would you interfere with God's plan? I know I wouldn't."

"Quote of the Day" C.S. Lewis

Ms. Dominique tweets her "Quote of the Day"

Can a mortal ask questions which God finds unanswerable? Quite easily, I should think. All nonsense questions are unanswerable.-- C.S. Lewis, essayist and juvenile author.

"This idea is a tough one. Can you ask questions which God finds Unanswerable? I can't. He's not even returning my phone calls.  And what about questions that are Unknowable? Or Unthinkable? Or Unaccountable? Even for an accountant? Hard to say.

"And what about questions that are Unmentionable? Like my Unmentionables...  I don't know. It's like when they asked my Grandpa if he wore boxers or briefs. He said 'depends'. So even that question is, in part or in the hole, unanswerable--except maybe for God. And why would he care?

"One of my friends told me that he knows a family of Mormons who wear holy underwear.  Can't they afford to buy new underwear, without the holes?"

Ms. Dominique tweets for Marriage

Ms. Dominique tweets for Marriage:

“Marriage is not like prayer. You can always back out of a prayer. That’s why God has so much to forgive. Marriage is mostly what you have to do in front of others. As people say, it's like a pair of docks. A real Mystery is why we do it at all.

“Or maybe it’s like when you buy a new riding mower online—sight unseen—and it turns out to be a billygoat with a “sprinkler,’ ‘two horns’ and a ‘manure spreader.’ But marriage actually prepares you and your friends for a pair of docks: Marriage includes you, your significant ‘other’ and all of your friends (or at least your wedding guests).

“And you have to hold your wedding guests to their end of the deal. They have to help you to get through your marriage. And they have to support you if you ‘falter at the altar.’ And they have to hold your hair back while you puke. And give you all of the receipts for the wedding gifts.”

Spiritual Advice in the manner of Elizabeth Gilbert’s “Eat, Pray, Love”

Ms. Dominique tweets for  Christmas presents!

“There's a reason we refer to ‘leaps of faith’ -- because the decision to accept any notion of Divinity is a mighty leap from the Rational over to the Unbelievable. And I don't care how many scholars of every religion will try to prove to you through the scriptures that their faith is rational; it isn't. If faith were rational, it wouldn't be faith. 

“Faith is belief in what you cannot see or prove or touch. It’s like believing in the Tooth Fairy, or Santa Claus, or the Easter Bunny. You must have faith. Or else you don’t get your shiny new quarter, your Christmas presents, or your Easter candy. Jeez, are you that stupid that I have to explain this to you? What are you, a five-year-old?”

Spiritual Advice in the manner of Elizabeth Gilbert’s “Eat, Pray, Love”

Ms. Dominique tweets for teapots (shaped like her boyfriend) and just “Letting go”

“Letting go is a scary enterprise for those of us who believe that the world revolves only around ourselves—which is obvious where I am concerned. But maybe not for you. Because, unlike me, you have a handle, which I personally turn. And if I let go of this, even for a split-second, well – that would be the end of The Universe (or at least your universe). 

“But what if I just try dropping it…. if I sit quietly for now and cease my relentless jiggering of Reality. Watch what happens if I let go. The world does not come to an end. The airplane does not crash out of the sky in mid-flight, after all (yep, that’s what you told me when you talked me into joining the Mile High Club … remember?). 

“The potted cacti in our bedroom does not wither and die, and the Nile does not run red with blood. Or at least not my blood. Life continues to go on…. That’s why I’m so sure that my management of every moment in this whole world is so non-essential? Why don’t you let it be? Try it. Jeezus, just let it the fuck be!"

Ms. Dominique tweets for a healthy colon:

Ms. Dominique tweets for a healthy colon:

“Why do people always look so serious in Yoga class? When you make serious faces, like this ___!!! you scare away the good energies. When you try to meditate, you must smile. You can always call the good energies with a big smile. 

“Smile with your face, smile with your mind, and all of the good energies will come to you and clean away all of your dirty energies -- your dirty, dirty energies. You know the ones. You can even smile with your liver, and with your adrenal glands, and your colon, too. Just do it. If you’re too serious, you make yourself sick. So smile instead. Make your colon happy. Remember, an empty colon is like a happy mind. Sometimes your mind just needs to take a good, healthy shit. That’s all. It can only help-- mainly by taking all that pressure off your brain.”
