Keep Calm

“Nothing can bring you peace but yourself.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

I have found over the years that getting upset does not do me any good. The alternative is to stay calm and make the best of what ever comes my way.

Here are some thoughts of Angel Chernoff’s that I agree with.

5 Daily Quotes that Will Calm Your Mind When You’re at a Crossroads

1. Talk like you are blessed. Walk like you are blessed. Think like you are blessed. Work like you are blessed. And you will be.

2. It’s often our own thinking that hurts us the most. There’s no reason to imprison yourself. Don’t think outside the box. Think like there is no box.

3. Letting go isn’t forgetting, it’s remembering without fear. It’s stepping forward with a present mind and a lesson learned.

4. Our character is often most evident at our highs and lows. Be humble at the mountaintops, strong in the valleys, and faithful in between.

5. It’s funny how we outgrow what we once thought we couldn’t live without, and then we fall in love with what we didn’t even know we wanted. Embrace life’s gradual evolution…

The bottom line is, despite the real world challenges you face, the biggest and most complex obstacle you will ever have to personally overcome is your own mind. In other words, you aren’t responsible for everything that happens to you in life, but you ARE responsible for undoing the self-defeating thinking patterns that these undesirable experiences create.


. “Set peace of mind as your highest goal, and organise your life around it.”

Brian Tracy


A blonde is taking the driving portion of her driver’s license exam. She handles most of the maneuvers quite well. She has a little trouble parallel parking, however, and winds up a couple of feet from the curb.

“Could you get a little closer?” the examiner asks.

The blonde then unbuckles her seat belt and slides over toward the examiner. She asks, “Now what?”


I made a stupid mistake last week. But now that I think of it, did you ever hear of someone making a clever mistake?


A Catholic woman, a Protestant woman and a Jewish woman die and go to heaven. St. Peter meets them at the gate to heaven.

The Catholic woman says, “I’ve been a good wife and mother, I took good care of my family and I want to go to heaven.” St. Peter tells her to go to the left.

The Protestant woman says, “I’ve been a good woman. I kept my house clean and cooked and took care of my family, and went to church every Sunday.” St. Peter tells her to step to the left also.

The Jewish woman tells St. Peter, “I’ve been a good woman, I made Shabbos every Friday, I went to the synagogue on the holidays, and took care of my family.” St. Peter tells her to step to the right.

She immediately asks him, “Why did you tell me to go to the right and you told the other two women to go to the left?”

St. Peter replies, “Don’t you want to go to the beauty parlor first?

I love Jewish humor, it is no wonder that most of the great comedians have been Jewish.



I am a deeply superficial person.

Andy Warhol


Mary:  So I guess I misinterpreted everything.

Jill:  What do you mean?

Mary:  Well, he got down on one knee in front of me, and…

Jill:  And what?

Mary:  And he retied his shoe!


“An error can never become true however many times you repeat it. The truth can never be wrong, even if no one hears it.”

Mahatma Gandhi


She said: Being married or single is a choice we all have to make. It’s not a great choice….it’s sort of like when the doctor says “Ointment or suppositories?”


Give a man enough rope and he’ll claim he’s tied up at the office.



Don’t play stupid with me… I’m better at it.

This truck has been in 15 accidents…and hasn’t lost one yet.

Humpty-Dumpty was pushed!

Keep honking, I am reloading!

Was today really necessary?


“Patience is not the ability to wait. Patience is to be calm no matter what happens, constantly take action to turn it to positive growth opportunities, and have faith to believe that it will all work out in the end while you are waiting.”

Roy T. Bennett


Management is not responsible for duplicates from previous dailies. The editor is somewhat senile.
