In the journey of life, it is great when we can get advice that guides our steps and helps us avoid some pitfalls. Experience, it is said, is the best teacher, but it doesn’t always have to be your own experience. In this post, I share some of the wisdom I have gathered in my half century plus existence as they apply to certain life situations.
It is actually my practice to illustrate my posts with graphics bearing wisdom nuggets or scriptures. Therefore, I have attached the titles of posts from which these quotes have been drawn to enable you see the graphics they appeared on and, perhaps, look at the circumstances that warranted my coining the quotes.
I would love to know what you think about these quotes and share, if you may, situations where they have or may be found relevant.
