Further Life Lessons From The Doctor


It’s time for some more wisdom from everybody’s favourite Time Lord.

Things got very philosophical and deep for a while there…. (And for my blogging friend Bun and his boys, I finally found a quote from the Tenth Doctor I could tolerate.)

But you can always trust the Eleventh Doctor to come in swinging with the optimism:


Truths were told:


And my favourite fashion choices were upheld:


Relevant observations were made about the state of the world and its politics:

We’ve definitely all had moments like this (I feel like this right now with only one more week of term before the holidays):


And to finish, the Eleventh Doctor swings again:

  1. I really like the ‘never trust a hug’ quote. It is such a refreshing take on the action of a hug. With a hug, sometimes you just can’t know if its genuine or if it’s done out of politeness, or maybe you hug back out of obligation.

    Good luck for the last week. The school holidays are just right around the corner. So close, yet so far. At least with your work you know you will get time off at a certain point. As for me, I took leave and will be back at work on Wednesday. After that…well, I don’t know when I’ll get time off again πŸ˜€

    • I actually remember that line in the show because I was really struck by it at the time.
      Someone said that the last term is 12 weeks! I’m trying not to think about that and just focus on this lot of holidays coming soon. πŸ™‚ Hope you had a good break. Enjoy the last couple of days left. πŸ™‚

  2. Thank you for the quote from the tenth doctor! I appreciate you posting one. I know you had to grit your teeth and put yourself through a lot to find one. I’m not sure what happened there. I like David Tennant as an actor, but perhaps he wasn’t given as many good lines as some of the other doctors. πŸ™‚

    • There’s a t-shirt with that quote on it. I’m tempted….

      It’s been interesting having these daily quotes from each of the Doctors. You start to get a feel for the type of Doctor they were. I’ve never really had an absolute favourite, I think they each bring something I like, but I’ll confess to going off the Tenth Doctor based on his quotes and becoming more fond of Eleven. I love his “swings to swing on” quote. πŸ™‚

  3. I am particularly fond of the final one. Worlds to save, swings to swing on. Yes exactly! As a hugger I am laughing away, especially at the comment from Gerard. Must remember to keep that hugging thing under control. In my defense I am no back slapper. πŸ™‚

  4. I like that last one too, but you have me bemused H. (not an uncommon state of affairs, I admit πŸ™‚ ) Hols? What hols? It’s September! I don’t know how your Australian system works but our half term week off isn’t till the end of October. You’ll just have to hang on a bit πŸ™‚

  5. My favourite was ‘Won’t this go any faster? Come on. Come on. Come on’. I’m pretty sure I say this at least once a day when I’m out on the road in traffic. Apparently it’s not any better when you have a Tardis πŸ˜‰

    I don’t know about Doctors 1 to 8, but so far I’m up to Doctor 11. Slowly, but surely …

  6. I’m going to live a little and swing on a swing…but first I have to put on my hat, hug my cat and get going. I love The Doctor, he’s so wise, but always willing to have fun.

    BTW, your post showed up in my email…I’m just late in commenting.

Talk to me. I love a discussion. I might learn new stuff.
