Old, but Worth Repeating



21st Century Zen


1. Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me,for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me either, just pretty much leave me the hell alone.

2. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken car and no cell phone.

3. It's always darkest before dawn. So if you're going to steal your neighbor's newspaper, that's the time to do it.

4. Don't be irreplaceable. If you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.

5. Always remember that you're unique. Just like everyone else.

6. Never test the depth of the water with both feet.

7.. If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of car payments.

8. Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

9. If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

10. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

11. If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

12. If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.

13. Some days you're the bug and some days you're the windshield.

14. Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.

15. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

16. A closed mouth gathers no foot.

17. Duct tape is like 'The Force.' It has a light side and a dark side,and it holds the universe together.

18. There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works.

19. Generally speaking, you aren't learning much when your lips are moving.

20. Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

21. Never miss a good chance to shut up.

22. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

Some of them are hit too close to home. Lend me $20 and I'll tell you which ones.

Laughter really is the best medicine. Thanks for a healthy dose! I've been down with a nasty bug and am grateful for the pleasure of getting back online. The Irish wedding was lovely. We have one coming next month. I wish you lived close enough to make it really special!
Have a great week,
lucyd

This is so damned funny, Kenju. I'll probably refer to it in the next day or two--with credit, of course.

HI there- finally getting to read your posts.. I love this. We all tend to take uorselves way too seriously most of the time-but the truth is that we all can relate to theses "pearls"- I know I can.And I would like to remind some other people of them as well. Meanwhile I'll just follow # 21...

The wedding looked lovely ~ Well the

Thanks for visiting my blog; glad you like my husbands art. All of the artwork on my blog is his; everything else is just scavenged.
