A few good sayings.......

God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

If you wouldn't write it and sign it; don't say it!

Resentment is like taking poison, and hoping the other person will die.

There are two kinds of people who don't say much, those who are quiet, and those who talk a lot.

STRESSED? It is just desserts spelled backwards.

Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a stroke of luck.

We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are.

"Do or do not. There is no try."

There is only one thing more painful than learning from experience, that is not learning from experience.

You don't seem to realize that a poor person who is unhappy is in a better position than a rich person who is unhappy. Because the poor person has hope. He thinks money will help.

Here is the test to find whether your mission on Earth is finished: if you're alive, it isn't.

Confidence comes not from always being right, but from not fearing to be wrong.

Almost anything is easier to get into than out of.

Friends are like angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly...

"The Pessimist curses the wind, the Optimist expects it to change, the Realist adjusts his sails!"

"That which does not kill us had better run away damn fast..."

You are what you do….not what you say.

Last but Oh, not least:
Never Explain.
Your friends don't need it and your enemies aren't going to believe you anyway.
