The holidays are just around the corner. A copy of my novel, Plato’s Promise – A Woodland Tale is a great gift and will put a smile on the face of the recipient. Trust me – I’m not a doctor.
Have you read Plato’s Promise? Why keep denying yourself the joy and pleasure? Buy it today.
“Persuade me or prove to me that I am mistaken in thought or deed, and I will gladly change–for it is truth I seek, and the truth never harmed anyone. Harm comes from persisting in error and clinging to ignorance.” Marcus Aurelius
“I called on the king, but he made me wait in his hall, and conducted like a man incapacitated for hospitality. There was a man in my neighborhood that lived in a hollow tree. His manners were truly regal. I should have done better to call on him.” H.D. Thoreau
A man goes to confession and tells the priest, “I’m 75 and last night I made love to two 20 year old women. The three of us were together at the same time.” “When was your last confession?” asks the priest. “I’ve never been. I’m jewish.” The priests asks, “So why are you telling me this?” The man repiles, “I’m telling everybody!”
A pessimist is anybody who knows what’s really going on.
If you’re going to borrow money, always borrow from a pessimist. They don’t expect to ever get it back.
I had a canary once that was nuerotic. It hung by its feet all day. He thought he was a bat.
A little boy brings home a dog. His mother is not happy about it. The little by says, “Mommy, it was a great deal. I only paid a quarter and for that I got a dog who’s going to have puppies!”
“How often has what seemed to be terrible instead turned out to be the source and beginning of happiness?” Seneca
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the greatest accomplishment in the history of major league baseball. A record that may never be broken. Jolting Joe Dimaggio hit safely in 56 straight games. He hit the ball hard in game 57 but great defense broke his streak. He then hit safely in over 20 more straight games. He could run, throw, catch anything near him (including Marilyn Monroe), but lord could he hit. I think the longest streak since then was Pete Rose with 44 and he didn’t get a Marilyn Monroe and he was banned from the baseball and the Hall of Fame. The Yankee Clipper – 56 straight games – 1941.
