QUOTES # 2 A few more for you to read and ponder on. :) Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest. (Mark Twain) Always forgive your enemies …….. They hate that! Attitude is everything, so pick a good one. Be careful of the words you say, Keep them short and sweet, Because you’ll never know from day to day Which ones you’ll have to eat. Be yourself. Who else if better qualified? Don’t count the days, make the days count. Don’t spend money you haven’t earned to buy thing you don’t need to impress people you don’t like. Do more than exist; live. Do more than touch; feel. Do more than look; observe. Do more than read; absorb. Do more than hear; listen. Do more than listen; understand. Do more than think; ponder. Do more than talk; say something. (John H. Rhoades) If...if and buts were candy and nuts we would all have a Merry Christmas ! If you don't love it...live without it ! If you pay peanuts, you get monkeys. If you scatter thorns...don't go barefoot. If you take big paces...you leave big spaces. If you want a thing well done...do it yourself ! If you want it done right, you have to do it yourself. Practice makes perfect...so be careful what you practice. Remember, when you throw dirt, your losing ground ! Don't go around saying the world owes you a living; the world owes you nothing; it was here first. (Mark Twain)

Ossie, those are such words of wisdom. I had to copy them so I can read them often. I probably have read them before but I would like to read them often and remind myself to be wise and live in the present. Thank you.

These are rules that everyone could .... and should .... live by ..... some of them are better than others of course .... but that happens. The one I like most of all .... I think .... is the last one by Mark Twain .... and it should be given to every child when they turn 12 .. letting them know early that they have to work for what they want. It is good of you to share these with us.

Good to read that you enjoyed them and yes maybe the last Mark Twain quote should be given to every pre-teen as you suggest, but would they take any notice of it? :)
