There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why... I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?
Robert F. Kennedy
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The average pencil is seven inches long, with just a half-inch eraser—in case you thought optimism was dead.
I ain't never been poor--just broke. Being poor is a state of mind; whereas, being broke is just a temporary situation.
Wisdom and penetration are the fruit of experience, not the lessons of retirement and leisure. Great necessities call out great virtues.
I've never been poor, only broke. Being poor is a frame of mind. Being broke is only a temporary situation.
