Five Bouquets of Aphorisms (5)

Wisdom is more precious than rubies.
                        —Proverbs 8:11

Today you are the oldest you’ve ever been—and the youngest you’ll ever be.

God has made you good at something.

Every talent comes with a responsibility; every opportunity with an obligation.

Humility is not thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less.

Pointing out that your neighbor’s pictures are crooked won’t make yours hang straight.

If you plant poison ivy don’t expect to grow roses.

Small things done do more good than big things thought about.

Today is a new day. Yesterday died last night.

You will never arrive if you never start.

You can’t change yesterday, but you can poison today by worrying about tomorrow.

You can’t write a new beginning, but you can write a new ending.

Others know how you should change. You know how others
should change. Do you know how you should change?
