Chapter 10, Page 11, Book 14

Don't fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. 
The saddest summary of a life
contains three descriptions:
Could have, Might have and Should have.

 Louis E. Boone

I’m going with the theme of 'SHOULD' today and found this list of things we all should know by now.

Things You Should Know

Don't worry about what people think, they don't do it very often. 

Going to church doesn't make you a Christian anymore than standing in a garage makes you a car. 

Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity. 

If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you've never tried before. 

My idea of housework is to sweep the room with a glance. 

Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious. 

It is easier to get forgiveness than permission. 

If you look like your passport picture, you probably need the trip. 

Bills travel through the mail at twice the speed of checks. 

A conscience is what hurts when all of your other parts feel so good. 

 Eat well, stay fit, die anyway. 

Men are from earth. Women are from earth. Deal with it. 

No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes. 

Middle age is when broadness of the mind and narrowness of the waist change places. 

Opportunities always look bigger going than coming. 

 Junk is something you've kept for years and throw away three weeks before you need it. 

There is always one more imbecile than you counted on. 

Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognise a mistake when you make it again. 

By the time you can make ends meet, they move the ends. 

Thou shalt not weigh more than thy fridge. 

Someone who thinks logically provides a nice contrast to the real world. 

It's not the jeans that make your bum look fat. 

You should not confuse your career with your life. 

Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance. 

The most destructive force in the universe is gossip. 

You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we put the clocks back. 

A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person. 

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.

Should or should not...

Two Days We Should Not Worry

There are two days in every week about which we should not worry, two days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension. 

One of these days is Yesterday with all its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains. 

Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control. All the money in the world cannot bring back Yesterday. 

We cannot undo a single act we performed; we cannot erase a single word we said. Yesterday is gone forever. 

The other day we should not worry about is Tomorrow with all its possible adversities, its burdens, its large promise and its poor performance; Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate control. 

Tomorrow's sun will rise, either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds, but it will rise. Until it does, we have no stake in Tomorrow, for it is yet to be born. 

This leaves only one day, Today. Any person can fight the battle of just one day. It is when you and I add the burdens of those two awful eternities Yesterday and Tomorrow that we break down. 

It is not the experience of Today that drives a person mad, it is the remorse or bitterness of something which happened Yesterday and the dread of what Tomorrow may bring. Let us, therefore, Live but one day at a time.
