Favourite Aphorisms

A friend recently sent me an email - one of those emails which you are encouraged to forward to others - which listed 45 lesssons of life attributed to Regina Brett, a 90 year old newspaper columnist.

Here are 5 of the suggested life lessons (not in the order they originally appeared) - you may or may not agree with them but I thought they were quite interesting at the least...Feel free to comment on your own favourite aphorisms in response:

1. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.

4. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

5. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

  1. Get your priorities right. Where there is a will there is a way. For every real problem there is at least one elegant solution. Strike while the iron is hot. Strike the iron to make it hot. All that is required for evil to flourish in the world is for good people to do nothing. Don't be fooled by the tyrrany of the "OR" -- we can nearly always have our cake AND eat it -- e.g. we can be wealthy AND happy !!

  2. Interesting! Not quite what I expected to read... especially about the chocolate!

  3. Really good. "If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it." I think this is the best.
