ALWAYS NEW AND IMPROVED


"Our ideals are our better selves."

Amos Bronson Alcott (1799-1888) American educator.

Probably.

However, keep in mind, "better" is only that; it isn't necessarily as good as you can be.

Strive to improve and when you have, look to become even better.

HOBBES KNOWS


"The search for happiness is one of the chief sources of unhappiness."

Eric Hoffer (1902-1983) American philosopher/author.

Contentedness is a form of happiness.

Find that and you'll be happy, tail or no tail.

IF YOU WANT TO LEAD . . .


"Follow the crowd and you will never be followed by a crowd."

Unknown

Ok but at least understand what the crowd thinks, where it intends to go.

Not doing that is another reason you will never be followed.

I KNOW THIS MUCH


"Imagination and fiction make up more than three quarters of our life."

Simone Weil (1910-1943) French Philosopher

Don't know how Ms. Weil would know that, and "three quarters" does sound like a convenient number regardless.

But I do believe the concept is true.

What I imagine added to what I erroneously believe to be true is a big number.

What about you?
