Finding wisdom in unexpected places

Post date: Feb 04, 2012 7:58:18 PM

Writing from Blenheim. Had a lovely day yesterday saw Oliver's, had lunch at Alan Scott winery, dinner with Marsha and sme down time as well.

We are staying in a little motel we stayed in with little Adrian and slightly bigger Mark in June 1986 when we came to visit before Tony accepted Seddon job and we moved from Hokitika.

In this motel there is wisdom on the back of the sugar packets

Wisdom such as

"I have many faults but being wrong isn't one of them" Jimmy Hoffa

"Of all the 36 alternatives running away is best" Chinese proverb

"These are my principles. If you don't like them I have others" Grouch Marx

"It's clearly a budget. It's got lots of numbers on it" George Bush

"I like long walks, especially when they are being taken by people who annoy me" Fred Allen

"It was so cold I saw a politician with his hands in his OWN pockets" Bob Hope

"one man with courage is a majority" Thomas Jefferson

I hope whatever you are doing today you can find wisdom
