Quotes of the Day, Oct 18

Yes, you read that right - Quotes instead of just the quote of the day. I have several sources now. Pam does a great job of sending out Thoughts for the Day to my email box, as she does to several others, I assume. I have also mentioned that I downloaded a wonderful little widget that gives me a quote of the day. And, last but not least, Swampwitch gave me a wonderful gift when we met. I will share more of the gift later, but this part of the gift was a great book called, "Illuminating Wit, Inspiring Wisdom - Proverbs from Around the World" by Wolfgang Mieder (The world's top proverb expert.) Just in case any of you like books like this. I will tell where each quote came from.

Failure is success if we learn from it.
--Malcom Forbes
(from my wonderful little widget)

Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.
--Ashley Smith
(from Pam)

The accountant is clever at numbers, but he is ignorant of his own accounts.
--Indian (Tamil) Proverb
(from the book from Swampwitch)

Studying for the accounting test might be what made me pick the last one. But it is pretty funny. I actually know some people in that situation.

Hey Ladybug...Instead of studying for that accounting test, just hand in that Indian (Tamil) Proverb to your professor. I'm sure he'll understand...or maybe beer will work. Is there a proctor?

Oh boy - that account proverb is pretty dead on.

I had a friend in college who could ACE any test (even Organic Chemistry) and yet, she was painfully stupid when it came to real life situations.

I have been unable to comment for days. It's making me really upset.

Lets see if this works.

Now that you have to take the second half of that test, I think your idea about the marg might be a good salty one.
