THIS WEEK’S REVIEW:  “THE VISION:  Telling Kids That They Can Make the World a Better Place”

Ava Thrower of Detroit, Michigan, says “Excellent tool for school systems/teachers/parents to use to instill in our children (5th – 8th graders) the importance of getting a good education!!! This book includes a great short play that reminds students that there was once a time in American history when it was against the law for everyone to learn how to read and write. It’s a travesty today that so many young people are dropping out of school and not fulfilling their true destiny just because they believe that being smart is wack. This book gives children the tools to set goals to do better not only at school, but at home in order to make themselves and this world a better place.”

APHORISMS

An “aphorism” is a short, pointed sentence that expresses a wise or clever observation or a general truth.  Enjoy these!

  • The nicest thing about the future is that it always starts tomorrow.
  • Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail.
  • If you don’t have a sense of humor, you probably don’t have any sense at all.
  • Seat belts are not as confining as wheelchairs.
  • A good time to keep your mouth shut is when you’re in deep water.
  • How come it takes so little time for a child who is afraid of the dark to become a teenager who wants to stay out all night?
  • Business conventions are important . . . because they demonstrate how many people a company can operate without.
  • Why is it that at class reunions you feel younger than everyone else looks?
  • Scratch a cat and you will have a permanent job.
  • No one has more driving ambition than the teenage boy who wants to buy a car.
  • There are no new sins; the old ones just get more publicity.
  • There are worse things than getting a call for a wrong number at 4 a.m.—like, it could be the right number.
  • No one ever says, “It’s only a game” when their team is winning.
  • I’ve reached the age where “happy hour” is a nap.
  • Be careful about reading the fine print. . . . There’s no way you’re going to like it.
  • The trouble with bucket seats is that not everybody has the same size bucket.
  • Do you realize that, in about 40 years, we’ll have thousands of old ladies running around with tattoos in strange places?
  • Money can’t buy happiness — but somehow it’s more comfortable to cry in a Cadillac than in a Yugo.
  • Always be yourself because the people that matter don’t mind . . . and the ones that mind don’t matter.
  • Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.
