It is always right to detect a fraud, and to perceive a folly; but it is very often wrong to expose either. A man of business should always have his eyes open, but must often seem to have them shut.
Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield
He behaved like an ostrich and put his head in the sand, thereby exposing his thinking parts.

There is a destiny which makes us brothers; none goes his way alone. All that we send into the lives of others comes back into our own.
Each of us finds his unique vehicle for sharing with others his bit of wisdom.
Man spends his life in reasoning on the past, in complaining of the present, in fearing future.
The Holy Spirit is our comforter, our teacher. That's why, in prayer, we can ask the Lord to open up Scripture and make it come alive to us, to open our understanding. He left his Spirit with us until we join him in Heaven.
No one on his deathbed ever said, I wish I had spent more time on my business.
I've always wanted to buy a sports car. After the England series, I went up to my dad and said that I wanted to buy a sports car and got his consent. On his birthday, I surprised him by bringing it home. It's a Porsche Boxter Limited Edition, and my family was thrilled to see it.
When a wave of love takes over a human being... such an exaltation takes him that he knows he has put his finger on the pulse of the great secret and the great answer.
Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings
I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation and is but a reflection of human frailty.
He who speaks without modesty will find it difficult to make his words good.
If your man is a sports enthusiast, you may have to resign yourself to his spouting off in a monotone on a prize fight, football game or pennant race.
And whoever walks a furlong without sympathy walks to his own funeral drest in his shroud.

The Holy Ghost brings back memories of what God has taught us. And one of the ways God teaches us is with his blessings; and so, if we choose to exercise faith, the Holy Ghost will bring God's kindnesses to our remembrance.
Henry B. Eyring

An artist never works under ideal conditions. If they existed, his work wouldn't exist, for the artist doesn't live in a vacuum. Some sort of pressure must exist. The artist exists because the world is not perfect. Art would be useless if the world were perfect, as man wouldn't look for harmony but would simply live in it.
I do have the most adorable little Chihuahua mix. I adopted him about 3 1/2 years ago from Much Love pet adoption, and he has been the love of my life ever since.
