WIT & WISDOM - September 1, 1998


Do you get along with yourself? Do you know how to make friends and keep them? Do you enjoy your work? Do you see and appreciate the beauty of the world around you? Do you have enough sense of humor to laugh at yourself? Do you know how to pray and to serve God and your fellow men? If you do, you are really living. - Rev. Paul Osumi [2]

A mother was telling her little girl what her own childhood was like: "We used to skate outside on a pond. I had a swing made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods." The little girl was wide-eyed, taking this in. At last she said, "I sure wish I'd gotten to know you sooner!" [4]

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

The fingerprints of koala bears are virtually indistinguishable from those of humans, so much so that they could be confused at a crime scene. [5]
