*Isn’t it amazing how often a device will quit working the instant you make the final payment?
*No one can betray your secret if you don’t share it with a single person.
Send your noble blood to market and see what it will bring you.
Be hesitant to laugh at the mistakes of others, unless you’re prepared to be the occasional source of entertainment when you louse up. And you will.

*When you lose something there is nothing more annoying than finding it after you’re paid money to replace it.

*Repeating a lie doesn’t make it more truthful, no matter what politicians would have you believe.
*The bigger the lie, the bigger is the optimist telling it, or the more desperate.
Life is to be fortified by many friendships. To love and to be loved, is the greatest happiness of existence.
