Wit and Wisdom

Everything is relative because everything is related.

Say less; do more.

Stop, look and listen -- really, really listen.

Think fast;
think twice;
say something nice.

All you have are the choices you've made...

It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you; it’s the things you know that ain’t so. Mark Twain

Be ever vigilant.

Know your adversary.

Life is as harsh as we need it to be in order for us to learn our lessons. We influence the setting; we set the tone. 

Out of sight;
out of mind.

Life is a bit like mountain climbing --- the summits are usually further than you think.

Dare to be silent. It's not easy.

Do not desire to shine or appear clever.

Ashes to ashes;
Dust to dust.
What's been done,
it's in the past.

There are fundamentalists in every trade. They have no creative inspiration (no soul).

Those who are the weakest and most cowardly are often the most cruel.

We are most easily hurt by those we love the most.

“In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”—George Orwell

In a full heart, there is always room for more love.

Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity.

The best way to keep one's word is not to give it lightly.

Rudeness is the weak man's imitation of strength

Sooner or later, all chickens come home to roost. And when they do, they flock in together.

There is no one alive that can't use some help.

Take your time -- just don't waste any.

Smooth as a cat's meow-wow.

Fine as frog fuzz split down the middle.

There ain't no one that doesn't need help.

"The truth will set you free. But first, it will piss you off."

"A good solution applied with vigor now is better than a perfect solution applied 10 minutes later."
General Patton

Nothing is forever -- though sometimes it seems like it.

I'm worried. And mostly about things I can do little or nothing about. Where's the sense in that.
