YOU HAVE A CHOICE, THIS IS IT

"To be happy, we must be true to nature, and carry our age along with us."

William Hazlitt (1778-1830) British essayist.

You can fight aging (ageing if you prefer), many do, all unsuccessfully.

Or you can embrace the process taking, advantage of the good that comes each year you live.

What'll it be for you?

YOU'LL GET OUT MORE THAN YOU PUT IN

"Plough deep while sluggards sleep."

Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) American statesman/scientist/philosopher.

Not one of Mr. Franklin's more erudite quotes but the point's still valid, if not always taken.

Those less inclined to work hard than those who do will also be less likely to succeed.

A REVOLUTIONARY THOUGHT




"Every revolution was first a thought in one man’s mind."

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) U.S. poet/essayist/lecturer.

Not all revolutions succeed but none of those only thought, never began, ever will.

What is your revolution?

IF IT AIN'T BROKE . . .

"Striving to better, oft we mar what's well."

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) British poet/playwright.

Change what isn't "well" leaving "what's well" alone.

The difficult part is deciding which is which.

Do so carefully.

MUCH MORE THAN THE NAME

"There is a scarcity of friendship, but not of friends."

Thomas Fuller (1608-1661) British clergyman and author.

How appropriate in this day of Facebook "friends".

Don't be fooled; many, maybe most of yours, are not to you nor you to them.

Strive for friendship not friends.
