"The world is not run by thought, nor imagination,
but by opinion."

1. It's better to give than receive...
particularly if you don't have room for it.
2. There is a power behind every throne...
the electric company.

3. The moving finger writes and having writ...looks for a publisher.
4. If there were a tax on political flip-flops
and humbuggery... we would need no
other sources of revenue.
5. Weigh the faults of others against a
feather...weigh your faults against
a brick.
6. Hope is no substitute... for

7. Unlock the poet within you...
just don't give him a pencil.
8. If you have a problem beyond
your abilities, training, or endurance...
just call it a challenge and forget it.
9. Success isn't about having things...
but about having a place to put them.
10. It's better to give than to receive...
particularly if you don't have a place
for it.

"I would much rather that posterity should inquire why no statues were erected to me than why they were."

Do not do unto others as you would have them do unto you...
their tastes may not be the same.

The town was so dull that when the tide went out,
it refused to come back.

INTUITION: that strange instinct that tells a woman she is right
whether she is or not.

If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.

Count, I laughed out loud at #7. It's advice I probably should have followed myself. Hope all is well.

Love everything here...most importantly it is important to be insignificant, significantly!


Thank you all for your comments. Thanks for expressing concern about my health and for wishing us a Happy Thanksgiving. MARTY: It is advice I, too, should have followed good ol' #7; SNEE: Boxaholics Rule! YUN YI: Stay with me...I grow on people. Sometimes I even inspire! TALON: So good to see you back again We missed you! WE had a great Thanksgiving. Ok! You are permitted here to agree with Helen Rowland. PAUL: I have achieved significant insignificance without even trying by RECOGNIZING the importance of BEING UNIMPORTANT. My best to you all.
