More than 20 years, a wonderful colleague gave me a neat little book, Ginger Snaps: Fun Thoughts on Life and I want to share some of these "gems" with you:
Hot heads and cold hearts never solved anything.
To err is human, but it takes a better excuse next time.
You can't shake hands with a clinched fist.
There is no reward for finding fault.
Summer is when kids slam the doors they left open all winter.
Courage is the power to let go of the familiar.
Any town is a delightful place if you are a delightful person.
Never confuse motion with action.
Time isn't your enemy unless you try to kill it.
Never cut what you can untie.
Don't put off until tomorrow what you can at overtime rates today.
