“Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.”
Irish poet and playwright, Oscar Wilde
Let me honest about this. I saw this quote yesterday on the WoollyMuses site when he posted it in response to my “FOWC With Fandango” prompt, “leave.” He said he saw the quote posted on a blackboard in a pub somewhere.
The quote struck me because of its fundamental truth. I think we all know people who bring happiness and joy to whoever they’re with or wherever they are. But, no doubt, we all know a few people whose very presence is a downer, and when they leave, it’s a relief.
So thank you, Woolly, for the inspiration for my One-Liner Wednesday post. And thank you to Oscar Wilde for your insight.
