Wisdom Nuggets

Well, this is something my wife could use right about now. Come to think of it, most of us could.

I especially enjoyed the "Nineteen Tips for Cheering Yourself Up" entry.

And sorry for the late, late post.



Money will not buy you happiness, but it will let you look for it in more places.

Your conscience will not keep you from doing what is wrong, but it will certainly keep you from enjoying it.

Misers are not much fun to live with. However, they make *great* ancestors.

Opportunities always look bigger going than coming.

The real reason you can't take it with you is that generally it's gone before you are.

Hospitality is making your guests feel at home even if you wish they were.

A closed mouth gathers no feet.

A modern pioneer is a woman with three young children who can make it through a rainy Saturday without a television.

Remember, the world is full of willing people. Some who are willing to work, and others who are willing to let them.

WISDOM for YOUR WEEK: "To the man who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness, but to the sinner he gives the task of gathering and storing up wealth to hand it over to the one who pleases God." (Ecclesiastes 2:26)

Oh Mr. Musings, you have created a GEM with this one!!!!!!!! (Thursday's post... sorry I'm late replying to it). I LOVE "The Happiness Project", what a fabulous concept!! I will, of course, be signing up! :) And I will keep in mind from now on to keep my mouth shut so-as to "gather no feet". That's a good one. =)

Oh, you're not late ... I didn't finish writing it up until 11:30 Thursday night!

As always, thanks for the kind words. Many people who read my stuff are actually more pleased by the links I provide than the other material, and I'm okay with that.

Yes, The Happiness Project was a delight to run across, and I shall have to make it a regular stop on my Web journeys.
