I collected this group of "nuggets" from the Internet and edited them into a prose cluster.


Be more concerned with character than reputation — 

what you really are, rather than what others think you are.

Do the math. Count your blessings. A grudge is too heavy 

to lug around. The world needs spiritual fruit, not religious

nuts. Silence is often misinterpreted, never misquoted.

Laugh every day, it's like inner jogging. There is no key to

happiness — the door is always open. The most important

things in your home are the people. We do not remember

days, but moments. Enjoy the moments. Until you try it, it's

hearsay. It's all right to sit on your pity potty every now and

again. Just be sure to flush when you’re done. Learn from

the turtle, it only makes progress when it sticks its neck out.

Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional.

One who dies
with the most toys is still dead.

A small colorful tapestry of life's lessons, with many a golden thread of wisdom. It leaves one smiling and nodding.
