Thursday Quotables (Feb 25)

Welcome to Thursday Quotables, a weekly meme hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies. Every Thursday you can post a quote from a book that you're currently reading. It can be meaningful, funny, a real tearjerker or just something beautifully written. You decide. Click on the link above if you want to learn more.

Right now I'm reading a book by Robert Eggleton, called Rarity from the Hollow. It's about a very smart young girl, Lacy Dawn, who is being abused by her father, and who escapes reality with the help of her imagination.

This line is from the first chapter. I just love this analogy. It's so simple and precise.  

"Don't complain. Complaining is like sitting in a rocking chair. You can get lots of motion but you ain't going anywhere,"

What about you? What analogies do you use in your everyday life?
