Words to Live By

* Just accept that, some days, you're the pigeon: and, some days, you're the statue.

* Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.

* Always wear stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.

* Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be "recalled" by their maker.

* If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

* If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

* It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to be kind to others.

* Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won't have a leg to stand on.

* Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.

* Since it's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late.

* The second mouse gets the cheese.

* When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.

* Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.

* You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.

* Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

*A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

  1. What does the first mouse get?

    I've been the statue many more times than I've been the pigeon. Just saying.

    Big hugs, Sandee! :]

  2. I think the first mouse is just the "rebound mouse" for lack of a better word. Ya know, like in a new relationship after an old one. The first mouse is just a teeser.

    Great ones, Sandee.

  10. Love the one'some mistakes are much fun to make only once'. But those are all good. I will have to try to remember most of them. Makes you think a little bit anyway.
    Have a fantastic week end.

  11. "Since it's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late." Those are words that I could most definitely live by!
