I read this recently and thought it had some good practical advice for us all.
- Accept that some days you’re the pigeon, and some days you’re the statue.
- Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.
- A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.
- Remind yourself that birthdays are good for you: The more you have, the longer you live.
- Drive carefully. It’s not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.
- If you can’t be kind, at least have the decency to be vague or silent.
- If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.
- Never buy a car you can’t push.
- Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won’t have a leg to stand on.
- When everything’s coming your way, you’re in the wrong lane.
- You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.
- Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.
- Don’t cry because it’s over: Smile because it happened.
- We could learn a lot from crayons: some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull; some have weird names, some have ragged wrappers, and all are different from each other but they all have to live in the same box together.
- Happiness often comes through doors you didn’t even know you left open.
