Quotes #462 and 463, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

Here goes Blog Quotes #462 and #463... "I can prove anything by statistics, except the truth." -George Canning, British politician- I found this humerous. The point is to be careful. Stats are good. With that stated, they can be stretched like a slingshot, twisted like a pretzel, and manipulated like a rookie frat boy. Observe with care. See if the author is pushing an angle. Pay attention. And you know what they say... the average human has one breast and one testicle. Quote #463... Statistics are like bikinis. What they reveal is suggestive, but what they conceal is vital." -Aaron Levenstein- HMMM That's my view...what say you?

Quote #461, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

Here goes blog quote #461...

"The trouble with not having a goal is that you can spend your life running up and down the field, and never score."
-Bill Copeland-

Can anyone relate? The chicken running around with it's head cut off feeling?
This reminds me of the analogy of Progress and Activity. Just because you are busy doesn't mean you are productive, or actually getting anything done.

The purpose of a goal, like a goal line, is to set a mark and see if you actually 'cross the mark.' Get to the goal--- if you will.

Many people don't take the time to set goals. Those are usually the same people that are going through life, and not getting much traction. Those are the folks that are likely starring in the movies of other director's lives. In other words--- they are parts to someone else's goals and plans.

Goals are good. If you don't currently set them, perhaps it's a decent thing to consider? They just might help you get to one side or the other of that field called life, and score a few more times.

That's my view...what say you?

Quote #460, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

Here Goes Blog Quote #460...

"I'm not interested in how you got to the wrong answer."
-Jack Williams-

The other day a good friend of mine and I were chatting and he gave me that line. We both cracked up at it. The rudeness. The arrogance. Of course, it's just a kidding line. Nonetheless, a classic.

It happened to be a line that he heard many a time from his dad while growing up. We then went off into 'Memory Lane' thinking up and re-hashing classic one liners from our elders.

Each of us has heard them from our parents. We will probably be repeating those same lines on to our kids and grandkids. Heck, one time our family roasted our dad for his 70th birthday---and guess what the platfiorm was? The "Ism's" of our father.

Long live the one liner classics from our parents!

That's my view...what say you?

Quote #459, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

Here goes Blog Quote #459...

"A loyal friend laughs at your jokes when they are not so good, and sympathizes with your problems when they are not so bad."
-Arnold Glasgow-

That, my friends, is truer that one might think.

Key word in this quote--- LOYAL.
Re-read as needed. Share with others. Perhaps a nice little subliminal message will get passed around.

That's my view...what say you?

Quote #458, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

Here goes Blog Quote #458...

"If you don't know where you are going, you might end up somewhere else."
-Toby Keith-

Driving down the road the other day, I heard this song come over the radio waves. I had to do a double take as to the meaning of the statement.

After further pondering, it was determined to be one of those tricky statements that go round and round. Can always expect something fun and unique from country music.

Silly, yes.
Makes you think, absolutely.
Some truth to it--- I believe so.

Moral of the story... it's not a bad idea to determine where you want to go, otherwise you'll surely end up somewhere else. I think??

Might lead to the question--- How does someone know where 'somewhere else' is, if they don't know where they are 'going?' HMMM...
Nice piece of writing by Mr Keith and his crew!
