~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

The only way to live happily with people is to overlook their faults and admire their virtues. – Author Unknown


Quotes attributed to Antoine de Saint-Exupery:

"A child is not frightened at the thought of being patiently transmuted into an old man."

“A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.”

“A single event can awaken within us a stranger totally unknown to us. To live is to be slowly born.”

“I know but one freedom and that is the freedom of the mind.”

“As for the future, your task is not to foresee it, but to enable it.”

“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”

“If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.”

“Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward in the same direction.”

“It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important.”

“It is in the compelling zest of high adventure and of victory, and in creative action, that man finds his supreme joys.”

“One only understands the things that one tames.”

“More wisdom is latent in things-as-they-are than in all the words men use.”

“Perhaps love is the process of my leading you gently back to yourself.”

“Pure logic is the ruin of the spirit.”

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

We do three kinds of jobs, cheap, quick, and good.

You can have any two:

A good, quick job—won’t be cheap.

A good job, cheap—won’t be quick.

A cheap job, quick—won’t be good

My husband and I often spell words so that our small children won't understand what we're saying. I didn't realize what a habit this had become until one day when my husband and I were in the grocery store at the soup aisle. An aggressive young woman banged into our cart, then nudged me over, blocking my access to the soup. Annoyed, I looked at my husband and said, "Boy, is she r-u-d-e!"

"Yeah," he replied, "and I'll bet she can s-p-e-l-l."

Numerous services on the Web will shorten the URL for you. Find links to them, along with information about them, at:
