~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

It is a common delusion that you make things better by talking about them. - Dame Rose Macaulay

"We become vulnerable when we love people and go out of our way to help them." Thatís what the wealthy industrialist Charles Schwab declared after going to court and winning a nuisance suit at age 70.

Given permission by the judge to speak to the audience, he made the following statement: "Iíd like to say here in a court of law, and speaking as an old man, that nine-tenths of my troubles are traceable to my being kind to others. Look, you young people, if you want to steer away from trouble, be hard-boiled. Be quick with a good loud no to anyone and everyone. If you follow this rule, you will seldom be bothered as you tread lifeís pathway. Except youíll have no friends, youíll be lonely, and you wonít have any fun!" Schwab had made his point -- love may bring heartache, but itís worth it!

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

An Austrian hotelier has sawn off part of his roof because it was hanging over the border into the Czech Republic.

A court had ordered Dietmar Hehenberger to trim 12ins from the roof of his luxury hotel in Guglwald, reports CKK.

"I would rather cut off part of the roof today and live in peace than to risk being forced to demolish more in the future," he said.

Mr Hehenberger blames Austrian authorities who he says used imprecise maps when approving his new hotel wing.

Both the Czech and Austrian authorities ordered the hotel owner to remove the overhanging part and he finally agreed, after an appeal failed.
