    1* Accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue.

    2* Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.

    3* Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.

    4* Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be recalled by their Maker.

    5* If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

    6* If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

    7* It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    8* Never buy a car you can't push.

    9* Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won't have a leg to stand on.

    10* Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.

    11* Since it's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late.

    12* The second mouse gets the cheese.

    13* When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.

    14* Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.

    15* You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world
    to one person.

    16* Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once

    17* We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and
    some are dull. Some have weird names and all are different colors, but they
    all have to live in the same box.

    18* A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

    Okay, tonight, I think I am being philosophical.

    1. There are days that you are nither. Those are the really good days.

    2. I agree.

    3. Who cares what I'm reading? I want to enjoy it!

    4. How 'bout, "do everything with thought"?

    5. Sometimes, you just have to say it.

    6. If you don't lend the money, you haven't lost money, or a friend.

    7. Be yourself.

    8. Uhhh...

    9. Have you ever heard of handstands?

    10. That's right. Do what you have to do.

    11. Sleeping late is good.

    12. If you're always in first place, you don't get to look at ...

    13. Some days, you just shouldn't get out of bed.

    14. Why can't we be old first?

    15. I'm not sure I want to be anyone's everything.

    16. Yeah!

    17. All of them are colorful.

    18. I agree. Detours can be fun.

    Can you tell I have absolutely nothing I care to do at the moment? Hubby is out of town for a week. I love being on my own. Guess I got used to that when he was in the service. It's a bit different now, with all the kids out of the house. Well, almost...

    These are good quotes. I have to say I was laughing at the one about how it seems your sole purpose in life may be to serve as a warning to others!

    I like the "Warning" one too. Although the Crayon one makes sense, too.

    Very cute! :wink:
