Observations

It’s not that people can’t read. It’s just that some choose not to.

I’m always wary of those who find a certain nobility in always speaking their minds. If your mind is full of foolishness, then you’ll reveal yourself to be a fool.

Some individuals just seem unable to make a point without being belligerent.

If you feel an inclination to invite yourself, please understand there is a reason you weren’t invited. It’s likely not an oversight.

Don’t presume to know the truth about someone or some circumstance. Truth is often a difficult thing to know. Sometimes the truth is simply unknowable.

It’s okay to walk in through the out door. You don’t have to march to an arbitrary beat.

I try my best to avoid beginning with sentences with the words, “You should.”

“I don’t want to” is a legitimate reason. We tend to make up excuses rather than just saying “no.”

It is still perfectly acceptable in 2017 to live your life in private. You don’t have to vomit every aspect of your life on social media. A little mystery is a good thing. A lot of mystery is even better.

There is a reason why some couples don’t have children. It is not your duty to pry. The truth might be incredibly painful.

Don’t be so quick to put down other people’s work. Maybe it’s not important to you, but it sure might be important to that person.

There is a better-than-average chance that the person you think is well off is actually up to his eyeballs in debt. The ability to swipe a credit card should never be mistaken for affluence.

Just once, I’d like to hear someone say, “Of course it’s about the money.”

Maybe your best isn’t very good by the world’s standards. And there’s nothing wrong with that.

I’m not that interested in hearing your telephone conversation.

I grew up listening to 80’s music. But as a general rule, I have found 90’s music to be superior. Something seems to have gone wrong in the 80’s.

Bill Clinton’s single greatest act of diplomacy was convincing Fleetwood Mac to reunite for the 1992 Democrat convention.
