Habit is habit and not to be flung out of the windows but coaxed downstairs a step at a time.”   —   Mark Twain

PS.  Rest In Peace, Buck Henry!  You were a very funny guy!   —   YUR

When some men discharge an obligation, you can hear the report for miles around.”   —   Mark Twain

(Oh boy!  Good ol’ Samuel would not be a fan of many of today’s athletes!  Some guys celebrate the smallest gain/stop/block/point, etc., etc. as though they’ve just won the championship.  Dude, or dudette, you just did your friggin’ job.  Acting like a clown is just disrespectful to your opponent, and makes you look like an ass.  Show some class.  Be a good sport.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Adam was the only man who, when he said a good thing, knew that nobody had said it before him.”   —   Mark Twain

(Now see, this is something the ancient Greeks probably didn’t come up with!  LOL!  He probably uttered this phrase when he was a bit younger, as he grew tired of organized religion in his later years.  Even going as far to say:  “Faith is believing what you know ain’t so.”  Enjoy the rest of your Labor Day weekend, friends!  Be well and do good.)   —   YUR

We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it, and stop there.”   —   Mark Twain

(Mark’s live in the moment advice?  I do think that too many of us try to make too much of what happens in life.  Just take it for what it is.  It is so uncertain, and shorter than most of us would like.  Let’s just be excellent to each other.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Never learn to do anything; if you don’t learn, you’ll always find someone else to do it for you.”   —   Mark Twain

(There always seems to be a grain of truth in the silliest things he said.  I wouldn’t recommend this as a life plan though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The finest clothing made is a person’s skin, but, of course, society demands something more than this.”   —   Mark Twain

(That’s because too many of us are either fat, or wrinkly!  If we were all nicely toned there probably would be much less objection to nudity.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

What a bargain grandchildren are!  I give them my loose change, and they give me a million dollars’ worth of pleasure.   —   Gene Perret

(The ones who might enjoy loose change are too young to give it to, because they are likely to swallow it.  And, the older ones are looking for bills these days!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.”   —   Cynthia Ozick

(“You pave paradise, put up a parking lot.”  Too true, unfortunately.  Let’s try to be more mindful of this.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clothes make the man.  Naked people have little or no influence on society.”   —   Mark Twain

(That’s back when it was pretty rare to see a naked person!  He should’ve been around for the streaking fad of the 1970s.  We still get one from time to time.  They may have not influenced society all that much, but they were/are an entertaining distraction.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
