CLEAN & ORGANIZE!
While cleaning the mountains of papers and books that I have (had) stacked in our office, I came across one of my favorite spiritual and inspirational books. A book so important and life-changing that I believe it must be required reading for every young person on this planet.
Mad's The Half-Wit and Wisdom of Alfred E. Neuman.
You be the judge. Here are just a few of the "classic pearls of idiocy" offered in this masterpiece:
It's a good idea to keep your words soft and sweet because you never know when you'll have to eat them.
If at first you don't succeed... you're about normal.
Modesty is the art of drawing attention to whatever it is you're being humble about.
America is the land that fought for freedom and then began passing laws to get rid of it.
These days, the only time politicians are telling the truth is when they call each other a liar.
We're living in an age when lemonade is made with artificial ingredients and furniture polish is made with real lemons.
Some people are like blisters: they show up right after the work is done.
The dollar will never fall as low as some people will do to get it.
A masochist is one who paints himself into a corner and then applies a second coat.
It's not just the ups and downs that make life difficult, it's the jerks!
Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days you'll be right!
What -- me worry?
