Thoughts for you to ponder while I am on vacation

No man needs a vacation so much as the person who has just had one. 
~ Elbert Hubbard

A good vacation is over when you begin to yearn for your work.  
~ Morris Fishbein

A vacation is what you take when you can no longer take what you've been taking. 
~ Earl Wilson

A vacation is like love — anticipated with pleasure, experienced with discomfort, and remembered with nostalgia. 
~ Author Unknown

A vacation is having nothing to do and all day to do it in. 
~ Robert Orben

The rainy days a man saves for usually seem to arrive during his vacation. 
~ Author Unknown

A vacation trip is one-third pleasure, fondly remembered, and two-thirds aggravation, entirely forgotten. 
~ Robert Brault

No vacation goes unpunished. 
~Karl Hakkarainen
Vacation: a period of travel and relaxation when you take twice the clothes and half the money you need. 
~ Author Unknown

Vacations prove that a life of pleasure is overrated. 
~ Mason Cooley

If we would only give, just once, the same amount of reflection to what we want to get out of life that we give to the question of what to do with a two weeks' vacation, we would be startled at our false standards and the aimless procession of our busy days. 
~ Dorothy Canfield Fisher
