Hey gang— let’s start the week with some positive/ wise quotes, sayings. I’ll start with two ( don’t want to monopolize!)

“Don’t let your simplicity be imposed upon” ( either Thoreau or Emerson, dunno )

“If thine adversary be weaker than thou, spare him. If stronger, spare thyself”

Let’s get this show on the roadwave

I've some sayings I wrote myself:

I'm going into the beerbarrel until I puke.
