LESSONS from our members...

By Kathy J from Cleveland Texas
My father (A L Jones) taught me to never "loan" any money or anything of value that I couldn't afford to "give" away. His logic was that if the person were to pay you back or return your goods, then that was wonderful. However, if the person didn't pay you or return your goods, then that was OK too, because you weren't expecting it back anyway.

By Joe
I've learned that a bad day is completely cured in 24 hours.

By Vickey McWhorter
My mother used to say this -- now it fits me: "I'm too young for Medicare and to old for men to care."

By Paul A
When you think no one is around to see...that is when someone shows up.

By Jay Campbell, Swansea, S.C., USA
Life is God's gift to me. What I do with this life, is my gift to God.

By Velma Lou
Don't let yesterday steal all your tomorrows!

By Gary E. Orr, Circa 1985
Old sayings do not become old because they aren't true. Take them to heart.

I live by Kathy J's theory. If I can't afford to "give" it to you then you probably won't get it. Returns are always a pleasant surprise.

Margaret Cloud said...

You always seem to find the nicest quotes.

The Mulligan Family said...

Those were all wonderful. Loved the "raising boys - not raising grass" quote too!

Cheryl said...

I enjoyed the "raising the grass" one especially! Where do you find such lovely quotes? I love them.

Renie Burghardt said...

I love Jay Campbells quote!

Have a great Sunday!


PS. We got up to 25 today and had bright sunshine. It felt like a heat wave. Tomorrow low 30s then getting to the normal mid-40s and low 50s. Yay!

Wanda said...

These are great. I really love the quote of the day about "raising" boys.

Mental P Mama said...

Every. Single. One. Of. These. Is. Awesome!

Merle said...

Dear Patty ~~ Loved all the quotes but my favorite one was
"Life is God's gift to me. What I do with this life is my gift to God."

I loved the Laughing Monkey e mail
