Erma Bombeck
Erma Bombeck Biography
Television Personality Journalist (1927-1996)



Erma wrote this when she knew she was terminally ill.



Erma Bombeck
If I had my life to live over...
Someone asked me the other day if I had my life to live over would I change anything. My answer was no, but then I thought about it and changed my mind.
If I had my life to live over again I would have waxed less and listened more.
Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy and complaining about the shadow over my feet, I'd have cherished every minute of it and realized that the wonderment growing inside me was to be my only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.
I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day because my hair had just been teased and sprayed.
I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained and the sofa faded.
I would have eaten popcorn in the "good" living room and worried less about the dirt when you lit the fireplace.
I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth.
I would have burnt the pink candle that was sculptured like a rose before it melted while being stored.
I would have sat cross-legged on the lawn with my children and never worried about grass stains.
I would have cried and laughed less while watching television...and more while watching real life. 
I would have shared more of the responsibility carried by my husband which I took for granted. 
I would have eaten less cottage cheese and more ice cream.
I would have gone to bed when I was sick, instead of pretending the Earth would go into a holding pattern if I weren't there for a day.
I would never have bought ANYTHING just because it was practical/wouldn't show soil/guaranteed to last a lifetime.
When my child kissed me impetuously, I would never have said, "Later. Now go get washed up for dinner."
There would have been more I love yous...more I'm sorrys...more I'm listenings...but mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute of it...look at it and really see it...try it on...live it...exhaust it...and never give that minute back until there was nothing left of it."

Joe, I miss you everyday. Not one day has ever gone by since you had to leave, that I don't think of you. It was the worst New Year's Eve. My 'baby boy', we will be together again someday, and when I find you, I will never let you go again. xoxoxo

Wild Fact About Me Love roller coasters. I was 17, with my friends at the beach, they couldn't find me after they saw me get on the coaster. They were too chicken to join me. They went on another ride , I stayed on the coaster 12 times in a row! They couldn't find me!

If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Eliminating all harm to animals and humans. Prosecute, without any tolerance for, (animal abuse, child abuse, and violence to women), perpetrators. Absolutely no tolerance for it and no second chances for anyone guilty of it.
What/who changed my life and why My guy, Steve, because I moved to FL from MA to be with him. I've lived in New England (Massachusetts) all my life, and never considered living anywhere else.

Quotation "We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect."

- Aldo Leopold

"Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see."

- Mark Twain

"If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion."

- Dalai Lama

"Problems can become opportunities when the right people come together."

- Robert Redford

"The ultimate test of a moral society is the kind of world that it leaves to its children."

- Dietrich Bonhoeffer, German Theologian.

"To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded!"

- Ralph Waldo Emerson, American author/philosopher.

"Those who experiment on animals should never be able to quiet their own conscience by telling themselves that these cruelties have a worthy aim."

- Albert Schweitzer, physician/Nobel Laureate.

"The more I know about people, the better I like my dog."

- Mark Twain, American author.

"We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with which we treat the animals. Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them. It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it. Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living beings, humanity will not find peace."

- Albert Schweitzer, physician/Nobel Laureate.

"The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as now they look upon the murder of men."

- Leonardo Da Vinci, Renaissance artist/inventor.

'When I hear of the destruction of a species, I feel just as if all the works of some great writer have perished.'~ U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

- Margaret Mead, anthropologist.

"Hear our humble prayer, O God, for our friends, the animals. Especially for animals who are suffering; for any that are hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry; for all that must be put to death.

We entreat for them, all thy mercy and pity, and for those who deal with them, we ask a heart of compassion and gentle hands and kindly words. Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals and so to share the blessings of the merciful."

Dr. Albert Schweitzer

"If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home and examine your conscience."

- Woodrow Wilson, former U.S. President.


"What's the use of a house if you haven't got a tolerable planet to put it on?"

- Henry David Thoreau, American author/philosopher.

"Because we all share this small planet Earth, we have to live in harmony and peace with each other and with nature. That is not just a dream, but a necessity."
- Dalai Lama, Tibetan spiritual leader.
"Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds."
- Albert Einstein, physicist.

    This monster is responsible and murderer who burned and tortured a puppy in the city of Manzanillo, Cuba. Let it be very clear that this petition is an initiative to demand justice. We demand that judicial bodies and communities that defend animal rights in Cuba take the necessary measures to punish those responsible and at the same time create a law that punishes animal abusers.
    OMG! PRAYERS for this little darling to REST IN PEACE! Animal ABUSERS ought to be GIVEN the SAME TREATMENT as PUNISHMENT! PLEASE sign & share @ Sosvox.org's team. Thank YOU!
