Thank you Gil. My father would constantly cut out "quotes" such as these, and put them under the glass on his desk. I also enjoy them, but not have not been quite as addicted as one daughter of mine, who I must send these to. Thank you for posting them.

It's not a matter of keeping them around, it's living them that's important and I believe you do.

I still look up to you older folks for wisdom and guidance.

Thanks,

Good stuff, Gil. I really dig great quotes. :D

Here's another from a wise old guy that I've reflected on many times. Not so much any more, I guess somewhere along the way I able to finally take the advice. ;)

"Don't expect "Sorry" from the sod that hit you. Either he's living with guilt or he hasn't a clue. Don't let it become your problem. " - Gil Davis
