The Quotes from My Dad

The quotes my Dad said most often.

My Dad had many quotes he like to say. Many of which he truly believed. Where he got them from are unknown. but I thought that you, the reader might enjoy some of them.

I think these comments are the product of wisdom and experience, and you've done well to remember and keep them in your heart.

Edward J. Palumbo- Thank you for your kind words. I am glad many have taken the time to read and comment. I hope some will find them useful. For reasons I have never known my Dad never bothered to write these quotes down. But I heard him repeat them off and on over the years and they just stuck with me. And I hope never to forget them.

God bless

I have no letters or written communication from my father, who passed on at age 60 in 1973. I've tried to provide more written insights for my daughter and son for that very reason; a stored letter often outlasts the writer. Now that you've shared these insights and comments, I hope not to forget them as well.
