This is one I need to send to all my strong female friends, and I think I'll send it to my daughter, too.

There are three kinds of men: The ones that learn by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence.

That's one of my favorites. Here's another old one and two new from a recent book I read.

"Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be". -Abe Lincoln.

"When you live with generosity, blessings come to you from corners and avenues you would never have expected." -"Go-Givers Sell More"

"Adversity changes us, but how it changes us is a choice." -"Go-Givers Sell More"

Great thread. Thanks.


Thanks and God bless us all,
Coyote
