Old Sayings – and thoughts

Son,

I am still cleaning my office. I found this paper that I will share. I don’t know who wrote these things – some are cute – some are profound. Here goes:

To the world you might be one person, but to one person you might be the world.

Going to church does not make you a Christian any more than going to McDonald’s makes you a hamburger.

Real friends are those who, when you feel you’ve made a fool of yourself, don’t feel you’ve done a permanent job.

A coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous.

Sometimes a majority only means that all the fools are on the same side.

I don’t have to attend every argument I’m invited to.

Lead your life so you won’t be ashamed to sell the family parrot to the town gossip.

People gather bundles of sticks to build bridges they never cross.

Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% of how you respond.

Learn from the mistakes of other. You can’t live long enough to make the all yourself.

There are two things I’ve learned: There is a God and I’m not Him.

Following the path of least resistance is what makes rivers and men crooked.

OK Son – now you know how boring cleaning an office can be.

Readers – please feel free to share your favorite witticisms.

Dad
