It is wise to direct your anger towards problems, not people; to focus your energies on answers, not excuses.”   —   William Ward

(I think this guy must have been a little too nice.  Doesn’t it seem, that far too often, that problems are people themselves?  I’d like to see this quote in a fuller context.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Pay no attention to the man in the above quote!  It is President Chester A. Arthur, not William Arthur Ward.  Below is a photo – hopefully – of Billy Artie Ward!      YUR

THE  PESSIMIST  COMPLAINS  ABOUT  THE  WIND;  THE  OPTIMIST  EXPECTS  IT  TO  CHANGE;  THE  REALIST  ADJUSTS  THE  SAILS.”   —   WILLIAM ARTHUR  WARD

(Both quotes puts me in mind of the folks who complain about those “son of a bitch” athletes who take a knee during the playing of the National Anthem.  Despite the greatness, and the “goodness”,  of the United States of America, there IS definitely a major problem with institutionalized racism in this country.  It won’t go away by wishing it away.  And, political correctness really just sweeps things under the rug.  Oh, no.  Let’s not talk about it.  Let’s just mask it behind banning words, and coming up with “acceptable alternatives”, like “the N-word”.  That will fix everything!  No, folks.  We have to be willing to talk about it, as adults, not as over-protected toddlers.  And, actually work for the necessary change.  Just like Alcoholics Anonymous tells us:  the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem.  Let’s sober up, and get to work.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.”   —   William Arthur Ward

(So, show a little gratitude.  Thank someone who’s been good to you.  Through words, or through actions, let them know you appreciate what they’ve done and who they are.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Forgiveness is a funny thing.  It warms the heart and cools the sting.”   —   William Arthur Ward

(Far too many people do not realize how good they could feel if they would just learn true forgiveness.  Work on it, friends.  Yer uncle is working on it.)   —   YUR
