      ImKarn23: As long as we are trying to best ourselves, there's hope. Have a great Hubber Day. I'll be checking.

      raciniwa: Thinking first mirrors a caution Manolie's grandfather gave her, to "roll your tongue 10 times before you speak." Doing so before speaking, is like thinking before acting: the only words you speak are the well-considered ones!

      Gypsy Rose Lee: You are right, the only things certain in life are death and taxes.

      picklesandrufus: One of the hardest is discerning the real nature of people in part because we all have the ability to change!

      excellent choice of words. Discernment should become easier as we get older....or we really didn't learn anything at all along the way.

      I try to choose wisely but sometimes it's so hard to be absolutely sure....

      win-winresources: "teleology" is my new word for the day, thanks. Shaped by a purpose, but whose purpose, etc. Deep thoughts from a Haiku. That's good, too.

      Freya Cesare: you are doing what more of us in the world would hope to do (do our best to choose wisely.) More power to you. Have a wonderful weekend.
