The secret of salvation is this:  keep sweet, be useful and keep busy.”   —   Elbert Hubbard

(When I’m not being a total grump my wife thinks I’m sweet.  Apparently, I’ve been useful to a few people on the internet over the years.  And, writing this daily blog keeps me busy.  I’m saved!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.”   —   Elbert Hubbard

(Truer words have never been spoken!  You can’t worry about doing it right the first time.  Occasionally, some do.  But that’s called beginner’s luck.  You have to be willing to fail, maybe even make a fool of yourself.  That’s how we learn.  That’s how we grow.  Thinking you won’t do it, unless you can do it perfectly is a fool’s game.  You can almost always do it better anyway.  But you need a starting point.  Lessons learned later in life.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

A man is not paid for having a head and hands, but for using them.”   —   Elbert Hubbard

(Aah!  THE Arts and Crafts man, among many other things.  He definitely knew about using his head and his hands.  He might be best known for saying:  “Don’t take life too seriously.  You’ll never get out of it alive.”  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Righteous indignation:  your own wrath as opposed to the shocking bad temper of others.”   —   Elbert Hubbard

(So true!  Every time I see some Congress person claiming that they are OUTRAGED, I just kind of shake my head.  We haven’t had an Elbert Hubbard quotation in quite a while.  Let’s hope we get a few more soon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The final proof of greatness lies in being able to endure criticism without resentment.”   —   Elbert Hubbard

(NOT to be confused with the Scientology guy!    El-Bert is responsible for many of my favorite quotes.  One of them being: “Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.”  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

A retentive memory may be a good thing, but the ability to forget is the true token of greatness.”   —   Elbert Hubbard

(This must be in the vein of:  forgive and forget.  It’s not always easy to forgive, but it usually can be done.  For most of us though, it is nearly impossible to forget.  Once you get past the forgiveness aspect you generally stay in a guarded state, like the Russian proverb:  trust, but verify.  Can we ever truly forget a wrong, or is this just a pleasant platitude?  Hmm.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Be pleasant until ten o’clock in the morning and the rest of the day will take care of itself.”   —   Elbert Hubbard

(Sounds reasonable.  I’m generally pretty pleasant anyway, but I’ll try to see if making a conscious effort makes a difference.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
