Leave Others Be

An important corollary to the Golden Rule is to leave others be as you would have them leave you be.

All anyone can tell you about the next life is to plan to get there ahead of your luggage.

You can as easily find the one true recipe for happiness as you can find the one true recipe for shepherd's pie.

How do you become a good person?  You practice the mannerisms until they become your own.

Time is the only one of life's resources that when it's all spent, you wish you had spent more of it foolishly.

Life is like a fancy restaurant -- it will always try to seat you at the worst table you will accept.

Hard as it is to be a true friend, it's easier than pretending.

I'll Tell You What's Sad

"I'll tell you what's sad.  It's sad to see little kids grow up and lose all their superhero powers."

"You don't have to train to be a grandparent.  Nature just molds you into an entertainment suitable for a younger audience."

"The trouble with getting up in the morning is that it's hard to rescue a day that begins with such a basic mistake."

"It's great to be friends with someone who's fun, but when they stop being fun, it doesn't necessarily mean they don't still need a friend."

"Two's company, three's a crowd, which leaves us to decide for ourselves what one is."

"First, without consulting you, they stop consulting you, and then you're notified you will no longer be notified."

"Change does not happen overnight -- until it's ready to happen, then overnight is exactly when it happens."

Be Reluctant To Judge

Be reluctant to judge another, for it's hard to know another person's true intent -- or the true intent of the judge.

I look at it this way -- if I always got what I prayed for, I'd be praying to someone no wiser than I am.

I believe in divine intervention.  I just don't believe it's the reason any particular number comes up in Powerball.

I'll tell you what's annoying.  It's annoying when people say, "You're only kidding yourself," when you're seriously trying to delude yourself.

There's nothing like seeing your reflection in a store window to get you thinking, "There but for the grace of God go I."

Madness is defined in different ways at different times, sanity being the knack of keeping current.

There are words you'd be ready to believe again -- if only someone would say them again.
