Show respect even to those who don't deserve it | Wisdom Life Quotes

Respect should be earned by actions, and not acquired by years.”   —   Source Unknown

(Another toughie!  No THE, and no words ending in E . . . until we got to SOURCE, which also took a while to get to.  We haven’t had any of the *Sources* in quite a while!  This quote has validity.  It just should never be used by a young person to an elder!  They haven’t earned the right.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love  and affection. - Buddha

You yourself as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.”   —   Source Unknown

(So many of the meme/graphics on the internet are attributing this quote to Buddha.  A few to a Sharon Salzburg (sic).  And, at least one to a Swatantra Saxena.  I didn’t know either of the latter two, but Ms. Salzberg is a best selling author and teacher of Buddhist meditation, and Mr. Saxena is some kind of Indian artist.  So, at least there is a connection there.  Apparently, there is no record of Buddha actually ever saying this.  So, the quote gets heaped on the Source Unknown pile.  There is truth to the quote though.  In order to better love others, we have to love ourselves first.  Never think you are not worthy of love and affection.  You most definitely are.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

When writing the story of your life, don’t let anyone else hold the pen.”   —   Source Unknown

(It’s your life, to live as you see fit.  But, life is also about making certain compromises.  Regardless how you live it, it’s all worthwhile.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Trump's hidden life on the golf course - POLITICO

Some folks seem to think they’re worth a lot of money just because they have it.”   —   Source Unknown

(I get where they were going.  But, I think it would be better stated as:  Some folks seem to think they’re worth a lot just because they have a lot of money.  What do you folks think?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Blessed are those who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused.”   —   Source Unknown

(A very good quote.  I have a tendency to take myself a little too serious, but I can laugh at myself at times.  Much healthier than calling yourself a friggin’ idiot!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Image result for seeing the finish line ahead

The secret of getting ahead is getting started.”   —   Source Unknown

(Well, Laozi said:  “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”  If you don’t get going, you can’t possibly get ahead.  Even my horoscope today said:  You’ll look at the distance ahead and, as impossible as it seems, you’ve already come really far.  So, get going . . . and persevere guys!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

A good many car drivers don’t need seat belts as much as they need straight jackets.”   —   Source Unknown

(Don’t get me started on bad drivers!  I could go on for days.  Although, pretty much all of us, at some point in time, have been guilty of some kind of lapse of judgment behind the wheel.  But, when it’s the other guy . . . they’re an idiot!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

There is something about a closet that makes a skeleton terribly restless.”   —   Source Unknown

(If I had to guess, I’d say this sounds like something Oscar Wilde might have said.  But then again, it could’ve been Erma Bombeck, or Art Buchwald.  Someone with a good sense of humor.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Never be afraid to try something new.  Remember, amateurs built the Ark.  Professionals built the Titanic!”   —   Source Unknown

(Cute!  I’m pretty sure that only the more devoted/extreme evangelicals believe in Noah’s Ark, these days.  But, it still makes for a fun quote.  There’s no denying that professionals built the Titanic though.  Pretty easy solve today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Will the last person out of the tunnel please turn off the light?   —   Source Unknown

(This is a quote?  I don’t even get it.  Something to do with the light at the end of the tunnel?  And, the light, which wouldn’t be in the tunnel . . .  So, this is some kind of joke, I suppose.  But, I’ve never heard it before.  It made for a fairly challenging cipher though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
