Today’s dose of wisdom & laughter

Some valuable quotes to ponder & reflect upon:

“The liar’s punishment is not in the least that he is not believed but that he cannot believe anyone else.” — George Bernard Shaw

“Until the lions have their historians, tales of the hunt shall always glorify the hunter.” — African Proverb 

“All thought truly does take form one way or another.” — Dr. Tae Yun Kim


“I destroy my enemies when I make them my friends.” — Abraham Lincoln


“Negative concepts are not ideas at all; they are the absence of an idea, the unreal shadows of something real.” — Dr. Tae Yun Kim

Now for some humor.  Please note that none of these jokes are written by me, nor is any offense intended.  We are all here on this planet together and humor is often found in things we don’t understand, such as different cultures or in nature.  I mean only to provide some material for laughter. 


Penguins Go to the Zoo


A man drives to a gas station and has his tank filled up. The gas pumper spots two penguins sitting in the back seat of the car.


He asks the driver, “What’s up with the penguins in the back seat?”

The man in the car says “I found them. I asked myself what to do with them, but I haven’t had a clue.”

The clerk ponders a bit then says, “You should take them to the zoo.”

“Hey, that’s a good idea,” says the man in the car and drives away.

The next day the man with the car is back at the same gas station. The clerk sees the penguins are still in the back seat of the car.

“Hey, they’re still here! I thought you were going to take them to the zoo.”

“Oh, I did,” says the driver, “And we had a swell time. Today I am taking them to the beach.”
