"I only ask to be free. The butterflies are free."
1. If you don't have a lot going
 for you...make sure you know
where it's at.
2. An optimist is someone who
resents the fact that you are
a pessimist.
3. You can't look down on others...
unless you are on a high horse.
4. Poise is the art of using a smile
instead of the mouth.

5. Drive in such a manner that
 you turn road rage into a
road wave.
6. Character is somewhat like can surround a 
person no matter where 
they are.
7. Never ask a wage from life...
you aren't willing to work for.
8. You should learn your first 
maxims while cutting...
your wisdom teeth.

9. If life were a pawn shop...
good habits would never be
10. Tomorrow may never come...
but today is already in the kitchen.

i never think at all when 
i write
nobody can do two things
well at the same time
and do them both well

DON MARQUIS, Archy the Cockroach

What do the French call it when you raise
chickens in town?
A coop de ville.
"Ah, the things we did together.
I won't tell if you don't!"

Love the one about the redundant rhyming mime artist! And good to see a picture of you.

Hi there,
I hope you and Helen and Lucy are well and enjoying spring. As usual there was a great deal of food for thought in your collection. This jumped out at me and I'm not clear why that is as I have never even been in a pawn shop: "If life were a pawn shop... good habits would never be redeemed."

Butterflies are probably as free as us, because we never know whether ME the man is dreaming being a butterfly or ME the butterfly is dreaming being a man (parodying some old Chinese wisdom) concerning the issue of wage, I would prefer profit-sharing instead...perhaps I'm dreaming that too...:):)
