Truisms For the New Year

Take what works best for you from this list. Let's plan on a rollicking, interesting, prosperous and abundantly robust 2017!

  • Accept the fact that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue! However, take note if you're the statue too often!

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

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

  • 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 might have been worth it.

  • It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

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

  • Since it's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, either make sure you're a bird, or, sleep late!

  • The second mouse gets the cheese -- Being first isn't always best.

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

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

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

  • We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.

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

  • Save the earth ... It's the only planet with chocolate!
