10 Quotes

It was several days since the latest post due to Christmas times but today I will take it on again, hope you will enjoy it!

I will do a somewhat different post today ranking the top quotes I can find.I am sure you will find something of use and wisdom.I have a list of 10 quotes and I am sure you have heard of at least some of them:

1.Christmas is doing a little something extra for someone.- Charles Schulz

If you know that someone is alone this whole weekend you should do something extra for this person.

2.Most of us would be upset if we were accused of being "silly." But the word "silly" comes from the old English word "selig," and its literal definition is "to be blessed, happy, healthy and prosperous."

I am sure you haven´t heard that one? New knowledge is often a surprise for us!

3.If it's very painful for you to criticize your friends - you're safe in doing it. But if you take the slightest pleasure in it, that's the time to hold your tongue.
