Any man who has had the job I’ve had and didn’t have a sense of humor wouldn’t still be here.”   —   Harry Truman

(One of our very few man of the people Presidents!  Talk about having “greatness thrust upon them”!  He was Vice President for less than 3 months before he had to take over, following FDR’s death.  And, less than 4 months later he had to make the decision of using the atomic bomb, to bring about a swifter end to the war with Japan.  And he had to deal with Stalin and Churchill for partitioning Europe, following Hitler’s defeat.  And, deal with Communist China and Korea, and a general who though he knew best!  That’s not all, but that’s quite a bit, for a former haberdasher from Independence, MO.  The man was also known for a lot of great quotes.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I have found the best way to give advice to your children is to find out what they want and then advise them to do it.”   —   Harry S. Truman

(Good ol’, plain talkin’ Harry!  He knew that if you advise someone to do something that they’re not really interested in . . . a bunch of bad was likely to occur.  Most of it ending up in some kind of resentment of you!  So, pay attention to your kids likes and dislikes, and take your cues from there.  Many of you have probably heard that the “S.” in his name didn’t really stand for anything.  Well, it’s true.  But, it was also a kind of compromise/tribute to both of his grandfathers, Anderson Shipp Truman and Solomon Young.  Which is very nice, and at least not so random sounding.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS. It turns out that this is kind of a milestone post.  It is this blog’s 5,555 post!  It’s kind of a nice, odd, round number!   —   YUR

It’s a recession when your neighbor loses his job, it’s a depression when you lose your own.”   —   Harry S. Truman

Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.”   —   Harry S. Truman

(Give ‘Em Hell, Harry!  This is our first Harry Truman quote since I’ve been posting the spoilers.  I’d like to think it’s a truism.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
