Today is just one of those days when I’m reaching back into the archives for one of my favorites. 

I don’t know the origin but it’s supposed to be from a lecturer who was talking about stress management.  He offered some advice when it came to dealing with the burdens of life which I pass along to you:





  • Accept that some days you’re the pigeon and some days you’re the statue.
  • Always keep your words soft and sweet…just in case you have to eat them.
  • Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.
  • Drive carefully.  It’s not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.
  • If you can’t be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.
  • It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
  • Never buy a car you can’t push.
  • Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won’t have a leg to stand on.
  • Nobody cares if you can’t dance well.  Just get up and dance.
  • Since it’s the early worm that gets eaten by the bird…sleep late.
  • The second mouse gets the cheese.
  • When everything is coming your way, you’re in the wrong lane.
  • Birthdays are good for you.  The more you have, the longer you live.
  • You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.
  • Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.
  • A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.
  • We could learn a lot from crayons.  Some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull and some have weird names.  All are different colors but they have to live in the same box.
