Mouth and Ears: 

Mouth and Ears A good listener is not only popular, but after a while, she actually knows something.

Mouth and Ears: 

Mouth and Ears The tongue is only a few inches from the brain, but to hear some people talk, you’d think the two were miles apart.

Mouth and Ears:

Speed of Light: 

Speed of Light Einstein said that nothing was faster than the speed of light, but he’s wrong. My imagination is much faster than the speed of light. For example, I just imagined traveling to Pluto and back. If I took a space ship that could travel at the speed of light, that would take centuries.

Speed of Light:

Ships Noah didn’t wait for his ship to come in. . . . He built it!


ships A ship in the harbor is safe, but that’s not what ships are for.

Diet How can a one-pound box of chocolate make me gain five pounds?


Diet Eat dessert first, because life is uncertain!


Diet Life can be a constant battle between carrots and chocolate, or you can figure out how you can live with the two in harmony.

Questions and Answers: 

Questions and Answers You may not know all the answers, but you probably won’t be asked all the questions.


Mourning I’ll laugh again, but I will not forget why I cried.

Rock Bottom: 

Rock Bottom The end is not near. Learn to cope.

Risk Life isn’t about having good cards. It’s playing a poor hand well.

GRACE Tact is not only saying the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing a tempting moment.

Complaining It’s not the load that brings me down, it’s the way I carry it.


Shouting Shouting and screaming to get people to perform is like using the horn to steer your car.

How to be Happy: 

How to be Happy Three essentials for happiness: 1. Something to do, 2. Someone to love, 3. Something to hope for.


Advice If it’s free; it’s advice. If you pay for it, it’s consulting. If you can use either one, it’s a miracle!


Humble Humility is like underwear – essential, but indecent if it shows.

Seasonal - January: 

Seasonal - January If in the last year you haven’t discarded a major opinion or acquired a new one, check your pulse. You may be dead.

Seasonal - February: 

Seasonal - February Love sees through a telescope, not a microscope.

February All that is worth cherishing in the world begins in the heart, not in the head.

What Dead People Say: 

What Dead People Say The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it. Michelangelo


E-Commerce eCommerce is not about technology! It is about relationships, partnerships, and communications, made possible by technology.


E-Commerce I guess people thought the phone and the fax machine were all about technology when they were introduced into businesses, too.

What Dead People Say: 

What Dead People Say There is no use trying,” said Alice. “One can’t believe impossible things.” “I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” Lewis Carroll
