8,789 words of wisdom.

Monday, November 7, 2011

i've had this book on my shelf for years, traveling with me from one living space to the next. it's one of those great, quick, pick-me-up-and-read-a page-or-two kind. most likely purchased at anthropologie.

well, i haven't opened it in ages, but tonight i randomly flipped to page two hundred and sixty six. and, low and behold, lie none other than a few simple words of wisdom to share.

tell people only what needs to be done, not how 
you are part of a big world and even bigger universe 
you may regret what you say but never what you do not say 
difficulty strengthens the mind as labor does the body 
laughter and crying sound the same in all languages 
a journey begins with a single step, and a road map 
all cats look alike in the dark 
don't weight yourself every day 
good posture means better health 
a drop of ink may make a million think  
remind friends of their own worth 
life has a certain responsibility code 
there are some qualities in life that cease to exist once we realize they are happening 
learn to let go

bolded ones are my fave. happy monday, my lovers. may we have weeks full of wisdom.
