No.95


"I only ask to be free. The butterflies are free."
CHARLES DICKENS, Bleak House
***
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
 fences...it 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
 redeemed.
***
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.
***
A MIME WHO CAN RHYME,
HAS WASTED HIS TIME.
***
"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) ....as concerning the issue of wage, I would prefer profit-sharing instead...perhaps I'm dreaming that too...:):)
