My girls will attest. I speak truth-isms. The gospel, according to Dianne.
For instance, “You can learn it when you’re 13, when you’re 21, when you’re 45 or 72, but there are just some things that are true and meant to be learned. Learn it early. It’ll benefit you more.”
“Ask a lazy person to do the difficult task. They always see the simple in the difficult.”
“You can do better. You can always do better.”
“Make sure those you love the most get to see you at your very best.”
“When you see the worst in people, forgive them, right away. They will get their correction soon enough.”
“My next mistake will be a new, improved and better mistake.”
“We don’t know where we’re going, but we’re on our way!”
“Life isn’t fair, and then you die.”
And here is something I picked up from a bumper sticker in the courthouse parking lot in Hinesville, Georgia, in the mid-1980s. I live by it. It spoke to me then, it speaks to me now: “The probability of being caught doing something ridiculous is directly proportional to the stupidity of the act.”
To that I add it is far better to let people think you a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt. Just saying …
What spoken truth-isms guide your life?
What unspoken ones guide you?
