    Hello folks,
    As a just for fun kinda thing, I feel I should share the wisdom given to me by my purchases. In this case the knowledge and advice from my tea which says

    "We are all spiritual beings having a human existence"

    and now, realjock community, it is your turn. Please feel free to share anything that you encounter in your day to day lives from billboards to tea bags.

    Stay warm!

    Laugh and the world laughs with you. Snore and you sleep alone.

    John Wooden is the absolute best at inspirational quotes/advice, here are some of my favorites:

    "Talent is God given. Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful."

    "Failing to prepare is preparing to fail."

    "Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do."

    "Be quick, but don't hurry."

    "Tell the truth. That way you don't have to remember a story."

    "Seek opportunities to show you care. The smallest gestures often make the biggest difference."

    "Although there is no progress without change, not all change is progress."

    When considering love, do not listen to pop music. Listen to singer song writers.

    Life is backwards, when your young you have plenty of energy to do whatever you need and want to do, but you lack knowledge and the means to work with to do it. When your old, you have the knowledge and the means to do most anything you need and want to do, but not enough energy to do it with. 'me' !!!!

    Do not speak ill of society, Lady Darlington.
    Only people who can't get in do that.


    I choose my friends for their good looks, my acquaintances for their good characters, and my enemies for their good intellects. I am an alcoholic, I am a homosexual, I am a Genius!
    -Truman Capote



    The reason we all like to think so well of others is that we are all afraid for ourselves. The basis of optimism is sheer terror.

    Anybody can sympathise with the sufferings of a friend, but it requires a very fine nature to sympathise with a friend's success.

    Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.

    Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.

    I am not young enough to know everything.

    Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.

    One should always play fairly when one has the winning cards.

    We learn from history that man can never learn anything from history.

    People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can't find them, make them.

    A few interesting ones I like:

    "Friends help you move, real friends help you move bodies"

    "If at first you do succeed, try not to look astonished"

    "A hundred thousand sperm...and you were the fastest?"
