Nothing to Add

Saturday, November 12, 2011

Just a lazy Saturday. Grandsons had a basketball game, then check out e-mail, Facebook and SparkPeople and clean out the DVR. We all need a day like this everyt once in a while.

Be a Hero!

Thursday, November 10, 2011

A light supper, a good night's sleep and a fine morning have often made a hero of the same man, who, by indigestion, a restless night and a rainy morning would have proved a coward.

- Lord Chesterfield, diplomat

Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.

- Benjamin Franklin in Poor Richard's Almanac

"Failure" is Success!

Wednesday, November 09, 2011

To swear off mistakes is very easy. All you have to do is swear off having ideas.
- Leo Burnett, advertising pioneer

Stumble seven times, get up eight
- Chinese Proverb

What is called failure is successfully identifying something that does not work.
Paraphrased from Thomas Edison

  


Actions Speak!

Tuesday, November 08, 2011

I have always thought the actions of men the best interpreters of their thoughts.
- John Locke, philosopher

What you do makes so much noise that I cannot hear what you say.
