16 Things It Took Me 50 Years to
Learn

by Dave

1. You will never find anybody
who can give you a clear and
compelling reason why we observe daylight-savings
time.

2. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely
suggests you think she’s pregnant unless you can see an actual baby
emerging from her at that moment.

 

3. The most powerful force in the universe is
gossip.

4. The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age,
gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep
down inside, we ALL believe that we are above-average
drivers.

5. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people
to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age
11.

6. There is a very fine line between “hobby” and “mental
illness”.

7. People who want to share their religious views with you almost
never want you to share yours with them.

8. If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human
race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that
word would be “meetings”.

The Mayan Calendar and the transformation of Human Consciousness.

9. The main accomplishment of almost all organized protests is to
annoy people who are not in them.

10. (Deleted)

11. You should not confuse your career with your
life.

12. A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a
nice
person.

13. No matter what happens, somebody will find a way to take it too
seriously.

14. When trouble arises and things look bad, there is always one
individual who perceives a solution and is willing to take command.
Very often, that individual is crazy.

15. Your friends love you, anyway.

16. Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and
dance.

The wisdom of our ancestors

The wisdom of our ancestors

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, When looking back in history, I soon discovered this has always been a problem, Benjamin Franklin once said, ”Of all the senses, common sense seems to be the one that is used the least.” As obvious as it may seem, many seem to be totally oblivious to it. Most, if not all of the problems the world faces today could be solved if people would just sit back and think about what would seem to be the most obvious and simple solution to any issue. Often times people tend to over complicate the issues. I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice. It is now evident they were a lot smarter than we gave them credit for. Many times, in today’s world, the schools and universities can no longer be counted on to teach truth and values that will guide someone through life.
