"The past is History the future will always remain a mystery and today is a gift . . . thats why they call it PRESENT"By reading this line I felt that everyday i should be thankful and be happy that i'm alive and breathing. This are one of my favorite words of wisdom, i'm not sure if thats what you call it but if you have one of yours please do share. Here's another one this is for if you think life has the same sh!t everyday. "Life is like a sh!t sandwhich, the more bread you have the less sh!t you taste"

Hi IceTroll, I heard those words from the animated movie, KungFu Panda (great funny movie) and thought wow, that is so quaint and I smiled when I read it in your discussion, very wise words. I like, "Every journey begins with the first step..." Makes perfect sense to me whenever I think of doing something new or something I don't like, to get through it I must just take the first step and move forward in journey of life.

Taking the first step, i haven't encountered that yet. But a priest gave me advice on moving on, in a long term process we need to take little steps :) after the first step take little steps and run and take a leap of faith. Some people never do intend to make anything happen unless their inspired.

...? Why does the topic say "chinese words of wisdom"? Anyways, here's one: "Running away is the best strategy." A lot of the time, avoiding trouble is so much simpler than challenging them. =P

He who asks is a fool for five minutes, but he who does not ask remains a fool forever.
