~ Bits of Wisdom ~

To handle yourself...use your head
To handle others....use your heart
Anger is only one letter short of Danger
If someone betrays you is his fault
If someone betrays you is your fault
Great minds discuss ideas
Average minds discuss events
Small minds discuss people
He who loses money....loses much
He who loses a friend....loses much more
He who loses faith...loses all
Learn from the mistakes of others
You can't live long enough to make them all yourself
{from the book...If only I'd said that...P.Legge}


Bits of Wisdom

to start your

Week out Right


Sue said...

Good Morning Koralee...I hope you are having a beautiful day. I think I need to have something made with the anger/danger quote for my son. His temper gets the best of him sometimes...and we all pay a price.

Hi Koralee....

Love your name, by the cute!

Truer words have never been written, that's for certain. Particularly about losing faith.

I'm a Northwest Gal too.... :-) I LOVE to go up to British Columbia.
