Words o' Wisdom For the New Year

An odd collection of bonmots and hopefully helpful insights. In truth, they are probably worth what you paid for them. Happy New Year, all.

  • The phrase "he's generous to a fault" was no doubt first said by a stingy person. It is inherently a lie.

  • May you have Peace, Love, Health, Prosperity and Thoughtfulness. May you enjoy the first four by employing the latter.

  • Some might say that that fresh starts at the new year is artificial. Making good changes in how you live, love and move in this life can be quite real, regardless of the date. But the new year is as good a time as any.

  • Things don't have to happen for a reason. Things just happen. However, your reactions to such events should have a reason.

  • Be good to one another. Practice until you get it right. Please.

  • It takes very little effort or insight to see and assume the worst about people. Use your head and heart to seek out the best in everyone. You might be surprised how good people can be.

  • Caring is like the quantum mechanics observation effect. The very act of caring changes the world. When many care, the universe changes.

  • The more you experience, understand, see and feel, the more you forgive.

  • Give a shit. It all pretty much matters.

  • Q: What is the meaning of life?
  •  A: It is the very act of asking and pondering that question.

  • The fastest way to seeing your hopes and dreams come to fruition is to help others achieve theirs.

  • Everyday is another chance to get it right.

Cheers, everyone.
