If you have not often felt the joy of doing a kind act, you have neglected much,
and most of all yourself. - A. Neilen (Shared by INSPIRE
A grandfather was going by his little granddaughter's room one night when he saw her kneeling beside her bed, with head bowed and hands folded, repeating the alphabet.
"What are you doing?" he asked her.
She explained, "I'm saying my prayers, but I couldn't think of just what I wanted to say. So I'm just saying all the letters of the alphabet, and God can put them together however he thinks best."

I have no idea if cannibalism is still practiced anywhere in the world or not. But it still brings a question to mind. If people who shun all meat are vegetarians, are cannibals then considered to be humanitarians ? (Shared by Frank Morris' "Be Thankful It's Monday"
From Wit & Wisdom - May 15, 1998: [During a heated debate in the United States Senate one senator told another to "go to hell." The offended senator appealed to Calvin Coolidge, presiding vice president, concerning the appropriateness of the comment. After leafing through some pages, Coolidge looked up and declared dryly, "I've been going through the rulebook. You don't have to go. - Chris Blake]
Something similar happened in college during rehearsal for a play (I believe we were doing "1776" at the time). During heightened tensions, one cast member told another to "Go to hell." The other retorted, "I've already been there. I don't like how your mother runs the place." Despite what you might, it actually loosened the tension that night. (It helped that the college was small - ca. 250 students a year - and everyone knew each other anyway). - John L. Hoh, Jr.
