XOXO

Matrimonial pollsters contend that a man who kisses his wife goodbye when he leaves for work every morning averages a higher income than a man who doesn’t.

Husbands who exercise the rituals of affection tend to be more painstaking, more stable, more methodical, and thus, higher earners, it’s believed.

It has also been documented that men who kiss their wives before leaving home in the morning live five years longer than those who do not.

There are two kinds of people, those who do the work, and those who take the credit.


Try to be in the first group; there is less competition there.

Work as if you were to live 100 years.

Pray as if you were to die tomorrow.

The humble man

As soon as you begin to take yourself seriously and imagine that your virtues are important because they are yours, you will become the prisoner of your own vanity and even your best works will blind and deceive you.

Then, in order to defend yourself, you will begin to see sins and faults everywhere in the actions of other men.  And the more unreasonable importance you attach to yourself and your own works, the more you will tend to build up your own idea of yourself by condemning other people.

Some of the most virtuous men in the world are also the bitterest and most unhappy, because they have unconsciously come to believe that all their happiness depends on their being more virtuous than other men.

Unknown Citizen

He was found by the Bureau of Statistics to be

One against whom there was no official complaint,

And all the reports on his conduct agree

That, in the modern sense of an old-fashioned word, he was a saint,

For in everything he did he served the Greater Community.

Except for the war until the day he retired

He worked in factory and never got fired,

But satisfied his employers, Fudge Motors Inc.

Yet he wasn’t a scab or odd in his views,

For his Union reports that he paid his dues,

(Our report on his Union show that it was sound)

And our Social Psychology workers found

That he was popular with his mates and liked a drink.

The press are convinced that he bought a paper everyday

And that his reactions to advertisements were normal in every way.

Policies taken out in his name prove that he was faithfully insured,

And his Health-card shows he was once in a hospital but left it cured.

Both Producers Research and High Grade Living declare

He was fully sensible to the advantages of the Installment Plan

And had everything necessary to the Modern Man,

A phonograph, a radio, a car and a Frigidaire.

Our researchers into Public Opinion are content

That he held the proper opinions for the time of year;

When there was peace, he was for peace; when there was war, he went.

He was married and added five children to the population,

Which out Eugenist says was the right number for a parent of his generation,

And our teachers report that he never interfered with their education.

Was he free?  Was he happy?  The question is absurd:

Had anything been wrong, we should certainly have heard.

A lion was walking through the jungle one day when he came across a bull.  The lion and the bull got into a tremendous battle, but in the end the lion killed the bull and ate him up.

The lion was so pleased with himself that he threw back his head and roared and roared.

The noise attracted a hunter who followed the sound until he found the lion.  The hunter took aim and killed the lion with a single shot.

The moral of the story:

When you are full of bull, is it wise to keep your mouth shut.

I loved you

I loved you; and perhaps I love you still,

The flame, perhaps, is not extinguished; yet

It burns so quietly within my soul,

No longer should you feel distressed by it.

Silently and hopelessly I loved you.

At times too jealous and at times too shy.

God grant you find another who will love you

As tenderly and truthfully as I.
