Everybody, somebody, anybody and nobody.

There was an important job to be done and everybody was asked to do it.

Everybody was sure somebody would do it.

Anybody could have done it, but nobody did it.

Somebody got angry about that because it was everybody's job.

Everybody thought anybody could do it, but nobody realized that everybody wouldn't do it.

It ended up that everybody blamed somebody when actually nobody asked anybody.


         Do not plan for things to turn out the way you want them to,

But simply do your best.

Do your best and don't think about what will happen next.


         Knowledge is better than practice

and thinking steadily of God is better than knowledge.

But best of all is doing your duty for God's sake.


         Pray for what you want, but work for the things you need.


         Happy are those who find fault with themselves instead of finding fault with others.

      ∑         Speech is priceless

if you speak with knowledge.

Weigh it in the scales of the heart

before it comes from the mouth.


         Be kind to people whether they deserve your kindness or not.

If your kindness reaches the deserving, good for you;

If your kindness reaches undeserving, take joy in your compassion.
