I received a story by email recently (you know the ones) that I actually opened and read. (This is not typical for me. I tend to see that it's one of those "inspirational" forwards and delete without ever opening.) I got a few chuckles out of the "proverbs" for life. Maybe you will too. :)

* Just accept that some days you're the pigeon;
and some days you're the statue.

* Always keep your words soft and sweet -
just in case you have to eat them.

* Always wear stuff that will make you look good
if you die in the middle of it.

*Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be
"recalled" by their maker.

* If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

* If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again,
It was probably worth it.

* It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to be kind to others.

* Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time,
because then you won't have a leg to stand on.

* Nobody cares if you can't dance well.
Just get up and dance.

* Since it's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird,
sleep late.

* The second mouse gets the cheese.

* When everything's coming your way,
you're in the wrong lane.

* Birthdays are good for you.
The more you have, the longer you live.

* You may be only one person in the world,
But you may also be the world to one person.

* Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

* We could learn a lot from crayons... Some are sharp; some are pretty; and
some are dull. Some have weird names; and all are different colours;
but they all have to live in the same box.

* A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.


  1. I think my favorites were "If you can't be kind at least be vague" - that made me laugh out loud! Followed up by the "Maybe your sole purpose is to be kind" - and the "only one person in the world, but the world to one person" - thanks for sharing, it was a great Friday read!!

  2. I really liked, "Since it's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late". YAY!!!

    And my fave was, "A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour", because life is one big rarely takes the route you had planned for it!


I am so glad you stopped by! My hope is that we can engage in a conversation together. I love to reply to your comments, but I need your help to make that happen.

If you have a blogger profile, would you consider editing your profile to "show my email address?" Then, when I receive your comment in my email inbox, I can reply directly to you.

Alternately, you can check the box "email follow up comments to..." so that I can reply to you right here. (You will also receive other readers' comments using this method.)

I'm excited to get to know you better!
