Your Daily Moment of Zen



(Slightly modified expressions to reflect contemporary wisdom):



The most wasted day of all is one in which we have not laughed.



1. Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead.

Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow.

Do not walk beside me either. Just leave me the hell alone.



2. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt and a leaky

tire.



3. It\'s always darkest before dawn. So if you\'re going to steal your neighbor\'s

newspaper, that\'s the time to do it.



4. Sex is like air. It\'s not important unless you aren\'t getting any.



5. Don\'t be irreplaceable. If you can\'t be replaced, you can\'t be promoted.



6. No one is listening until you fart.



7. Always remember you\'re unique. Just like everyone else.



8. Never test the depth of the water with both feet.



9. If you think nobody cares if you\'re alive, try missing a couple of car

payments.



10. Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.



That way, when you criticize them, you\'re a mile away and you have their shoes.



11. If at first you don\'t succeed, skydiving is not for you.



12. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he

will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.



13. If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably

worth it.



14. If you tell the truth, you don\'t have to remember anything.



15. Some days you are the bug; some days you are the windshield.



16. Don\'t worry; it only seems kinky the first time.



17. Good judgment comes from bad experience, and a lot of that comes from bad

judgment.



18. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back

in your pocket.



19. A closed mouth gathers no food.



20. Duct tape is like The Force. It has a light side and a dark side, and it

holds the universe together.



21. There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works.



22. Generally speaking, you aren\'t learning much when your lips are moving.



23. Experience is something you don\'t get until just after you need it.



24. Never miss a good chance to shut up.



25. We are born naked, wet, and hungry, and get slapped on our ass ... then

things get worse.

Me elevo con tanta espiritualidad ;o) Apr 20, 2002

Gracias por esa dosis de buen humor y sabiduría; no te imaginas cuánto la necesitaba hoy.

Que sigas así, -se agradece. Y intentaré seguir esas pautas que has mencionado. Entre tú y Aurora me estáis convertiendo en una nueva mujer



Un abrazo,

Anna

Number 21? Apr 20, 2002

I actually believe that one goes for women... It shows how poor men\'s mentality is that they can only come up with 2! ways/methods... Ahhhhh, creativity, I miss you!



Good one, Pepelu!!

Didn't you forget Pepelu's advice? Apr 20, 2002

First walk a mile in our shoes, before...?



Thanks, Pepelu!

LOL! As soon as you learn how to walk in my shoes (high heels)... That reminds me of a lovely anecdote about Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. He was being hailed as the best dancer in the world, and basically she just said that she did the same, on high heels, and backwards... For a good portrayal of men walking in women\'s shoes, I recommend \"Some Like It Hot\" (Con faldas y a lo loco). It\'s simply hilarious!

¿Dónde encuentras estas cosas, Pepeluí? Apr 20, 2002

Gracias, siempre es bueno que le hagan reír a una.



No estoy en desacuerdo con 21. No se puede discutir con las mujeres, porque no es que decimos siempre que tenemos razón, sino que siempre tenemos razón, por supuesto

Las mujeres, aunque difíciles de entender, son lo más hermoso que Dios puso en este mundo.(S.Sistema Apr 20, 2002

A ver...



Todas vosotras sois maravillosas y una \"maravilla de la naturaleza, necesidad del hombre\".



Cuando me iba a casar, una semana antes del matricidio (joer, dije martricidio?), mi amigo Peter me aconsejó: \"JL, remember you might be right but she will NEVER be wrong. And: if you fight, fight naked. This should help you...\"



Acepto, ante vosotras, no por feminismo ni machismo que generalmente: teneis la razón. Soy un hombre feminista según me definieron en un congreso de mujeres feministas donde los únicos hombres en la sala eran los dos de sonido y yo. Interpretación memorable



Por vosotras:



Si me pidieran concentrar toda la belleza del mundo en una sola imagen, no vacilaría: Un rostro de mujer



Las mujeres son las que merecen respeto hagan lo que hagan, porque son las únicas capaces de dominar al hombre.



Ahora esperemos a mis colegas hombres...la guerra entre sexos está servida ... je je je



Besos a todas pero a una de vosotras...uno grandototote



JL

Sucumbir... Apr 20, 2002

Pilar,



No se debe sucumbir ante la verdad sino digerirla, aceptarla y aplicarla en beneficio de los demás. Ya dará la vuelta o pendulará en nuestra dirección y nos \'pagará\' con creces.



Ya te contaré en Madrid si nos vemos....



Beso y abrazo,



JL

Air no. 21... Apr 20, 2002

...and you\'ll end up in an argument. If there were a No. 21b (about men), the cheering would be heard in Uranus. C\'mon, give us a 21b, Pepelú.

Let the slapping begin...

Para empezar bien el sábado ... Apr 20, 2002

Me uno con mucho gusto al club de los elogios mutuos. JL, gracias por esas flores para todas nosotras, somos los seres más dóciles que hasta ahora he conocido.

Y sí son los mismos rotarios que mencionaste. Cristina

Gracias por la risa Apr 20, 2002

No sé qué pasa con mis respuestas hoy, que no aparecen

Simplemente quería decirte gracias por alegrarme el día, con o sin el nº 21 (que después de tus aclaraciones ya se te puede perdonar todo). Que me siento con fuerzas renovadas para ir por el mundo después de leer las sabidurías tuyas y de Aurora



Un saludo,



Anna

OM, OM, OM, finally a mathematician found an answer Apr 21, 2002

The sound of one hand clapping is 1/2 the sound of two hands clapping.
