Rethinking the Thinkers

by BethShelby

“Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.”

-- Oscar Wilde

If that doesn’t work,

try signing them onto some

internet spam lists.


 "Believe you can, and you're halfway there."

 --Theodore Roosevelt

Being halfway there is a waste of time,

if the train

has already left the station.


"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”


But after a couple of hundred miles,

those corns are going to be

too painful to keep walking.


"Hope is the only thing stronger than fear."

  --Robert Ludlum 

That used to be true,

but now they have a super glue

which can hold up an 8-ton truck or two.
