Crazy good wisdom...

Blog quote #1131... 
"Live your life so that if someone says "Be yourself." it's good advice." -Robert Orben-     
Wow, took a bit to register that one. But once it did, boy oh boy- is THAT powerful! Bammmm!
That's my view...what say you?

How does one stay Ignorant?

Blog quote #1130... 
"The recipe for perpetual ignorance is be satisfied with your opinions and content with your knowledge." -Elbert Hubbard-     
The question is: Are you up for more learning  vs. do you prefer the status quo? 
Although there is no wrong answer here, our interpretation is Hubbard thinks we are cheating ourselves out of a full life- if we give up the thirst for more wisdom, education, and learning. We agree.

On Being Honest, Yet With Tact...

Blog quote #1129... 
"When you shoot an arrow of truth, dip its point in honey." -Arabic proverb-     
Boy did this one slap me in the face. Anyone who knows me is aware that I like honest conversations and strongly prefer to really know the truth of what people think.  BS, half truths, and not really saying what is on your mind might be convenient immediately, but long term only leads to destruction and further problems.
With that stated, my mom used to always say "You can say anything you want to anyone, as long as you say it in a nice way."  Anyone else get much from this quote?

Asking for help...

Blog quote #1127... 
"The healthy, the strong individual is the one who asks for help when he needs it. Whether he has an abscess on his knee or in his soul." -Rona Barrett-     
No ego here. Know where to go for help.Reach out, or sometimes, the best to reach up!

Eye Opening Statement - on YEARS of LIFE

Blog quote #1125... 
"Most people can do extraordinary things if they have the confidence or take the risks. Yet most people don't. They sit in front of the telly and treat life as if it goes on forever." -Philip Adams-     
How great is this quote? People get complacent and after a while just take life for granted. Every day is its own mystery, surprise, and treat. Each day is also limited and finite in number bestowed upon us. 
Quick point. If the average lifespan is 80 years old then we get an average of 29200 days to live. If we are 50 years old, we've lived 18250 days. That means on average, only 10950 days remain. Better start living! The sooner we realize that, the better.
