The Treasures of being Courteous

Blog quote #1141... 
"Nothing is ever lost by courtesy. It is the cheapest of pleasures, costs nothing, and conveys much. It pleases him who gives and receives and thus, like mercy, is twice blessed." -Erastus Wiman-    
Not much more to add here other than two questions...
Why  don't we all practice courtesy more often? And how did we get away from it and move toward rudeness and general cluelessness- which are both repugnant?

A strange phenomenom with Income and Expenses

Blog quote #1140... 
"Expenditure rushes to meet income." -Cyril Northcote Parkinson-    
Isn't that something that no matter how much money one makes, the expenses seem to keep pace? Why is that?  
Make more equals a license to spend more? What's wrong with a little savings?  Great observation here by Cyril.  Hmm...

On constantly pushing to the Limit...

Blog quote #1139... 
"You will soon break the bow if you keep it always stretched." -Phaedrus, 15 B.C.-50 A.D.)-    
We took this as  saying...moderation, in everything. Also, take rests in between striving for excellence. One cannot constantly have the 'pedal to the medal' or, it soon wears out/ loses its lustre. 
What did you think Phaedrus was trying to say here?

"Assumptions are the termites of relationships." -Henry 'the Fonz' Winkler-    
Power packed, concise comment with a unique, yet effective comparison. One conclusion here might be-- For better relations, clarify before assuming? Hmm...

Peace, at all costs...

Blog quote #1137... 
"Peace is more precious than a piece of land." -Anwar El- Sadat, Egyptian president-    
Amen to that!  One could fill in the blank where is says 'piece of land.'  When discussing fighting over most anything, peace is best.

A message for Mothers everywhere...

Blog quote #1136... 
"God could not be everywhere, and therefore, he made mothers." -Rudyard Kipling-    
Technically not true as the almighty is everywhere and everything, yet Kipling's statement gives us an idea of the importance of Mothers. Their love, teaching, wisdom, patience, and overall help in getting us from the womb to who we are today, cannot be understated. 
Thanks to all Moms everywhere, for being awesome. Happy Mother's Day

on DREAMING...

Blog quote #1135... 
"There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds." G.K. Chesterson-    
Today's message has the author hinting to us- to perhaps dream without limits? Those who are willing to try anything and think BIG, not even the sky--err the clouds can hold back.
Quite likely, the biggest impediment to our achievements, are the constraints our own minds place on us. Interesting...

On Complacency...

Blog quote #1134... 
"He who stops being better, stops being good." -Oliver Cromwell , 1599-1658-     
Complacency is ok to a limit in certain things, but it can get carried away. In this case, always good to keep raising the bar and improving on ourselves!

Remaining COOL...

Blog quote #1133... 
"One cool judgement is worth a thousand hasty counsels. The thing to do is supply light and not heat" -Woodrow Wilson-     
Most good decisions are made with level heads. In general, we get ourselves into trouble when making decisions in anger or with too much alacrity( both combined and we really are asking for it.) 
Proverbs 21:5 tells us "Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty."
Thus the moral here is clear; remain cool and calm when making decisions and plans.
