Friendships last when each friend thinks he has a slight superiority over the other.”   —   Balzac

(Interesting.  I suppose this could be true.  To me, though, it sounds like he’s over-thinking something that really shouldn’t require a lot of thought.  Many, many things require deep thought.  But, friendship?  Just take it as it comes, mah chilluns.  Like most things in life, there is no guarantee of permanence with friendships.  We all should enjoy them while we can.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I’d like to see The Honoré de Balzac Story, starring Jon Lovitz!  Yeah, that’s the ticket!      YUR

Our worst misfortunes never happen, and most miseries lie in anticipation.”   —   Balzac

(It’s certainly not an easy thing to do, but it’s definitely much healthier to try to live in the moment.  Dwelling on the past, and fretting about the future, really takes its toll on us, and in so many ways.  Be well and do good, here . . . and now, friends.)   —   YUR

An unfulfilled vocation drains the color from a man’s entire existence.”   —   Honoré de Balzac

(So . . . this is why I’m so pale!  If I do something that I love I’ll become tall, dark and handsome!  Where are those beer-tasting jobs???)   —   YUR
