Heart Thoughts

And you're overdue for another issue of serious thinking.



A well-rounded person should be able to entertain himself, entertain guests, and entertain new ideas.

Someone who lives for applause keeps all their happiness in the hands of others.

Think less about what you eat and more about with whom you eat. No food is quite so satisfying as good company.

The most common type of unskilled labor? Finding fault.

Misery loves company but can't bear competition.

Forget comfort and luxury. All you really need to be happy is something to be enthusiastic about.

Don't complain about the attention you get. It is always better to be looked over than overlooked.

Honesty is the best policy. Sadly, there are often too few policyholders.

Love is not blind. It simply often sees what is not yet there.

Silence is often misinterpreted ... but never misquoted.

It's all right to sit on your pity pot every now and again; just be sure to flush when you're done.

I think we're going to sneak in a movie tomorrow, followed by a wedding reception for a dear friend's son on Sunday. Y'all have a good weekend, too.

I'll see you on Monday.
