Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings.  Only one thing endures and that is character.”   —   Horace Greeley

(Great Greeley quote!  It took a little extra for me to get FAME, VAPOR, TAKE and WINGS.  I had to write out what were – up to that point – the unused consonants of:  BFJKMQVWXZ to figure them out.  I pretty much already knew it was VAPOR, TAKE and WINGS, because they were only missing one letter each.  But they kind of had to be confirmed before I could get FAME.  It all made perfect sense when I was done though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The illusion that times that were are better than times that are has probably pervaded all ages.”   —   Horace Greeley

 

(Sure, we all bitch about how bad things are, compared to earlier times in our lives.  That’s just human nature.  But, if simpler and more innocent can equate to better, then on an individual basis, for most, I think that it’s no illusion that times that were are better than times that are.  I guess it’s all relative, and a matter of perspective.  Be well, do good . . . and try to make the best of what life is giving you, today.  Because tomorrow is really going to suck!)   —   YUR  😉
