It is nice when people come to visit
It is nice too when they stay a while to eat and talk
And it is especially nice when they go away again

Seen on another forum:
Astrogeek wrote:Mutual, reciprocal respect among equals, "as yourself", the whole and only basis of equity, peace and goodwill among men.

That such different characters as Dr. Stallman, an outspoken atheist, Thomas Jefferson, an agnostic politician, and Jesus Christ, who should need no introduction, all recognized the same principle as the single foundation of everything good in human relations only emphasizes the timeless, self evident nature of this simple principle, this truth.

Went to a talk by an undertaker

She related how she pointed at a shooting star: 'look, there is your grandad!', she whispered

'How stupid do you think I am?', bleated Cyril (8)

The undertaker gave up 'lying' to children after that

Never go back. Never go back.

Never surrender the future you've earned.

Keep to the track, to the beaten track.

Never return to the bridges you burned.
