words of wisdom

My daddy was a wise man. (he also looked kinda like Clint Eastwood) He taught me three lessons that have stuck with me for most of my life, and I see more truth in them every day.

1) "If it looks too good to be true, it IS too good to be true."

2) "Nobody else in this world is going to give you something for nothing except for me and your mama, and even when WE do it, you'd better step back and examine our motives."

3) "If you're lucky, you don't have to be good. But I've noticed that the harder I work, the luckier I get."

If people want to tear down the Ten Commandments in public places, let them post my daddy's advice instead. If more people took those words to heart, we'd have a much healthier country.

Oh yeah. Daddy was also fond of saying, "If it was easy, any asshole could do it."


I like the last one.
Whenever I'm talking fitness/diet with folks who always get depressed because they didn't lose 25 pounds of fat and gain 30 pounds of muscle within the first 5 days of their diet/exercise I always tell them that if it was easy we'd all look like Schwarzenegger or Cindy Crawford.

Your dad looks like Clint Eastwood? I turned my hubby on to your site and the minute he say YOUR pic he said "He looks a bit like Charlton Heston". Famous genes you got there.

Awesome! The last two like left me with an impact or something.

#2 probably because I have a couple of kids of my own, and #3 because it is such a true statement!

Great words of wisdom.
