Tommy Lasorda death: Former Dodgers manager dies at 93 - Sports Illustrated

The only people with whom you should try to get even are those who have helped you.”   —   John E. Southard

(So very little on the author of this marvelous, positive quote!  He’s either a gentleman who was born in 1944 and died in 2004, a man who was born in 1945 and died in 1994, or a guy who was born in 1893 and died ? . . . sometime.  Or, he could have been – maybe still is – anyone else!  Any way, we should all strive to let go of all the hurts and slights of our lives, and concentrate on giving back to those who have been good to us.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I read a little while ago of Tommy Lasorda’s passing.  I wouldn’t have been surprised had today’s quote come from Tommy.  I was never a Dodgers’ fan, but I definitely think he was good for the game of baseball.  A seemingly great guy, who took a chance on a kid named Mike Piazza!  As a Mets fan, I’ll always be thankful for that.     YUR

James Feibleman Quotes, Famous Quotes by James Feibleman | Quoteswave

We are at once the beneficiaries and the victims of our great technology.  What man makes remakes man.”   —   James Feibleman

(James passed on in 1987, during the age of the VHS tape players.  Remember:  “Be Kind, Rewind”?  Life was a bit more manageable back then.  No available internet yet, so no Wi-Fi or blue tooth.  No widely available cell phones.  But, they did have beepers/pagers!  We are virtual slaves to our technology today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

NPG 391; Sir Walter Scott, 1st Bt - Portrait - National Portrait Gallery

Each age has deemed the new-born year the fittest time for festal cheer.”   —   Walter Scott

(A nice little challenge for the new year!  It’s certainly not everyday that we see “festal”.  And, citing Walter Scott, without his royal title, added a little intrigue to it.  Good one!  I hope everyone is celebrating the new year responsibly.  Things are finally looking up, but it’s too soon let our guards down.  Let’s be smart, folks, and we’ll soon enough conquer COVID-19.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
