Juan Martin del Potro

I don’t know him. For two years I was at home, watching `The Simpsons.’

Argentinian tennis star Juan Martin del Potro when asked if he knew anything about his next opponent John-Patrick Smith. The 2009 winner of the US Open has had rotten luck with injuries, and played only 14 matches in two years.

Line(s) of the Day #Firework

Firework

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?
Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards, one blow from caving in?

Taken from the song Firework by Californian songstress Katy Perry, from her third studio album Teenage Dream (2010). Along with one of her later songs Roar, this US chart-topper is considered one of her most empowering songs.

Line(s) of the Day #That’sLife

Frank Sinatra Thats Life

I said, that’s life (that’s life) and as funny as it may seem
Some people get their kicks
Stompin’ on a dream
But I don’t let it, let it get me down
‘Cause this fine old world it keeps spinnin’ around

Taken from Frank Sinatra’s song That’s Life (1963) from the album of the same name. If you’re a fan of ol’ Blue Eyes, it’s definitely worth you checking out another of his most famous songs here.
