Posts Tagged ‘Trouble’

I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection.  ’Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.
    —    Thomas Paine
[While I agree with Paine – in general – on the admirable traits required to accomplish great things.  I am equally reminded of the saying (I made up based on the title of a Star Trek – Original Series episode): “there is no truth in beauty, although there is a beauty in truth“.    Anyway, I would caution readers the above quote is equally valid for many mass murderers and terrorists – maybe even more so.     —    KMAB]

We’re in very bad trouble if we don’t understand the planet we’re trying to save.
We’ve arranged a civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend on science and technology.
We are like butterflies who flutter for a day and think it is forever.

7.)  Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier’n puttin’ it back.
8.)  After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring.  He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him…  The moral:  When you’re full of bull, keep your mouth shut.
9.)  Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.
A.)  The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.
