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.

Wisdoms of Benjamin Franklin

Love your neighbors, but don’t pull down their hedges.

Don’t think to hunt two hares with one dog.

He that is rich need not live sparingly, and he that can live sparingly need not live rich.

None preaches better than the ant, and she says nothing.

A long life may not be good enough, but a good life is long enough.

God heals, and the doctor takes the fee.

If you’d have a good servant that you like, serve yourself.

A good example is the best sermon.

Search others for their virtues, thyself for thy vices.

Proclaim not all thou knowest, all thou owest, all thou hast, nor all thou canst.

If you would keep your secret from an enemy, tell it not to a friend.

The wit of John F. Kennedy

On May 27, 1961  President Kennedy was quoted as saying:

“When we got into office, the thing that surprised me most was to find that things were just as bad as we’d been saying they were”.

On another note:

When asked by a little boy how he became a war hero:

“It was absolutely involuntary.  They sank my boat”.

Happy Birthday — William Butler Yeats

(June 13 1865 – January 28 1939)

— If suffering brings wisdom, I would wish to be less wise.

— Life is a long preparation for something that never happens.

— Happiness is neither virtue nor pleasure nor this thing nor that but simply growth, We are happy when we are growing.

— I have believed the best of every man. And find that to believe is enough to make a bad man show him at his best, or even a good man swings his lantern higher.

— Take, if you must, this little bag of dreams, Unloose the cord, and they will wrap you round

— The creations of a great writer are little more than the moods and passions of his own heart, given surnames and Christian names, and sent to walk the earth.

— The innocent and the beautiful have no enemy but time.

— The worst thing about some men is that when they are not drunk they are sober.

— There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven’t yet met.

— Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

— We are happy when for everything inside us there is a corresponding something outside us.
