    Not sure if these are attributable to anyone but I have thought

    The first rule of being polite is realizing when you can't be.


    No one should suffer merely because I don't like them.

    "Plan your work, work your plan." becomes "Plan your play, play your plan".

    I'm retired...

    Who Is Blind?
    The one who is unable to perceive another world.
    Who is dumb?
    The one who cannot speak a kind and loving word at the right moment.
    Who is poor?
    The one who is plagued by too many desires.
    Who is rich?
