Relationships is like fingers on you hand. "One" cannot do much.

I swear to you that is the spelling and grammar. I have people who can vouch for that. I just got this one a few hours ago.

I've got three that I keep with me, but they're actually good ones, so I'm not sure they fit? But I'm telling you anyways.

Learning is a treasure which accompanies us everywhere.

Everything has beauty but not everyone sees it.

Adding 'in your pants' also works quite well. Got that one from my dad, I think  :-D

I have a bunch of these on my fridge at home. :-) Nick put 2 of them next to each other a while back and it made me laugh:

Maybe you will live on the moon in next century.

Wish you good journey.


I got one in high school that read You will be fortunate in everything you put your hands to. I've always thought of it in terms of making art- putting my hands in art making always leads to good fortune, catharsis, expression....I still have that fortune, put it on a painted bottle. It's on my desk now :-) Funny how such a little thing can make you feel so good.
