              I'd say it was catchy. Wise isn't quite the word I'd describe it, but eh. To each their own.

                Just goes to show...you lack something important, especially if you don't see the wisdom in that simple statement. It's a shame really. But, like you said- to each their own.

                  You misunderstand me.
                  I see what wisdom there is to see in that statement. I just don't see how saying you possess wisdom is wise.

    "A poor girl wants to marry, And a rich girl wants to flirt.
    A rich man goes to college,And a poor man goes to work.
    A drunkard wants another drink of wine,And a politician wants a vote.
    I don't want much of nothin' at all,But I will take another toke."

    Touch me, touch me now
    Touch me, touch me now

    Philippians 4:6-7 "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

    The Merchant of Venice - Act IV: Scene I, "The quality of mercy is not strain'd, it droppeth, as the gentle rain from heaven upon the place beneath: it is twice bless'd; it blesseth him that gives, and him that takes: 'Tis mightiest in the mightiest; it becomes the throned monarch better than his crown."

    Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves. ~ James Matthew Barrie

    Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.
