    100 of the Wisest Sayings:

    #100 should be #1

    It’s an insult any other way.

      The manner the list was written, the order of of the sayings is in no way of what is more important. However I agree with you that prayer is paramount.

    • billNye November 28, 2017 Reply

      #101 There is nothing after this, spend your time happy with friends and family. Don’t waste it praying to something that doesn’t exist.

    Really nice sayings but as Linda said that prayer should be on top of the list but if u see list in another manner that every formula is a failure then the prayer is only key to open the locks.

    #5 is so annoying. Unless a person is actually on the team or is employed by the team or is employed by the government, “we” didn’t win or lose; “they” won or lost. “We” don’t have a failed tax policy, “the government” has a failed tax policy. How a person sitting in his living room watching a game or is at a stadium say “we” won or “we” lost? Really? You were playing? What position did you play? How much is your yearly salary?

    I know.. it’s America, and that’s just what is done here.

  14. Heather February 24, 2015 Reply

    Those of you complaining about #100… Did you think that maybe they saved the best for last?
    Let’s add another “lesson” to the list… Whatever number you want to give it – #Don’t be quick to judge
    Another fav – # Treat others how you want to be treated.
    Someone took the time to put this together and there are a lot of great words of wisdom. You took the time to read it.
    My dad said that my grandmother used to say, “it could always be worse.” yes, sometimes we have bad days or things may not go right, but be happy for the days we have or have had with those we love.
    And many more lessons can be included in this already plentiful list depending on lessons we’ve each learned.
    #rant over – don’t worry, be happy 🙂

    I’m thinking my parents mentioned MOST or ALL of these to me when I was growing up and I still live by them today. It makes it a whole lot easier to adjust to life’s changes…and learn how to get along in a world where nobody really wants to get along…

    By doing #100 everything else will fall into place nicely!

  23. Diana Clancy May 12, 2015 Reply

    What a great list! May I add a couple more?

    –Never belittle yourself. Especially never belittle yourself to critical people.

    –So you don’t feel like going? Go anyway. You’ll probably have a better time than everybody else.

    –Always carry yourself with dignity. You are, after all, somebody’s son or daughter, and you are precious to them.

    –Bring your best, give your best, smile the longest.

    –Kind words cost nothing but a little thought. Yet they can brighten somebody’s day, and maybe even many of their days.

      It means, don’t settle. Be patient, wait for the best. Just when you having your meal, don’t fill up on bread because you’re so hungry. Then your meal comes and you can’t really enjoy the best of it, because you filled yourself up with bread.
