Everything I ever learned ...
... I learned from quotes.
Call me shallow, but I love quotes. I hang on to those pithy, out of context words of wisdom that can get me through a crisis, inspire me, or confirm my deeply held beliefs. Or, simply make me laugh.
My husband loves quotes, too. In fact he comes up with several a day as he engages in his favorite pastimes: doing acrostics and cryptograms. Some of the quotes rate a place on the walls of his office.
Here are a few of his choices that have also worked for me. See if they do anything for you.
** Accept that some days you're the pigeon and some days you're the statue.
** If you're playing poker and you look around the table and can't tell who the sucker is, it's you.
** Always be wary of any helpful item that weighs less than its operating manual.
And one from Yogi Berra: If you come to a fork in the road, take it.
What are your words to live by?
