“To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone, and a funny bone.” – Reba McEntire

    This is a quote which uses three bones to define the structure as human being we need to live. The wishbone is not a human bone, but is no less required. It symbolises how we each need the ability to dream. The wishbone is not something we have already with our natural body- it is something we need to pursue and find, as the case of a dream. The backbone could be compared to a support system made up of friends and family; without you would find yourself paralysed when in need. Last of all is the funny bone. Though not particularly funny, our funny bones certainly feel weird when we hit it. However, the funny bone is no less an important bone of the body, showing how humor and the weirdness of life is necessary to embrace in order to achieve your goal.
