Posted:don't touch that, you don't know where it's been

( it works on so many levels )

it's beter to light a candle than curse the darkness....

( note.. for safety.. be sure to have an approved candle , proper safety , a smothering blanket , and someone who has lit candle's before... it's dangerous to light candle without the proper preperation .. check articles on proper candles and lighting proceedures )

on second thought maybe it's easier to curse the darkness..... "Fu*&ing Darkness!!!!"

thats right i look like an albino ape that has had a bad day.. go ahead say something stupid... i dare ya !

Best ever advice my friend gave me

You've got to move fast to beat the Devil - Your arm's too short to box with God.

Posted:"Never insult seven men when all yer packin' is a six-shooter."

"Be civil to all, social with many, familiar with few, friend to one, enemy to none."

"Tell me, and I may forget. Show me, and I may not remember. Involve me, and I will understand."

And the best advice I was ever given:

"Never give advice."

Dance like it hurts; Love like you need money; Work like someone is watching.

Never criticize someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes. That way, when you DO criticize them, you are a mile away, and you have their shoes.
