Wisdom of the Ages 101

“Treat all people fairly, with courtesy and respect no matter the age, race, gender. As a school bus driver this lesson was well used & passed on (I hope) to all the students. A smile goes along way when passing a stranger coming out of a store or on the street. Grumpy people are often caught off guard and that always makes me smile more.”

Wisdom of the Ages 100

“God sends us bad days so we will recognize the good days. Sometimes you’re up and sometimes you’re down – but the sun always shines. Learn to laugh at yourself. Burn me once shame on you, burn me twice shame on me. Remember – when you point one finger the other three are pointing at you. Mistakes are to learn from, only an idiot keeps making the same mistake. Yesterday’s to look at and learn, today’s to apply what you learned and tomorrow’s another day.”
52 year young woman, Stockton, California in the good ol’ USA
