Pearls of Wisdom

Recommended Posts

I thought I would share some of this with everyone here. This comes from another forum I belong to and was started by one of our members here at the other forum. I hope he continues with it here.

Thanks,

TalonRider

The Term "Pearl of Wisdom" comes from my mom. Anytime she whould offer me advice or give me her insight, she would call them "Pearl's" reminding me that the wisdom and advice should be treated as a valuable treasure, Just as if it were a real Pearl. She also raised me to understand that sharing the "pearls" given to me need to be shared with others.

This may seem far too presumptuous of me but Becouse of things that have happend in my life the last few weeks I have decided to post the bits of wisdom I have learned by myself, shared to me by others, and all other Pearls of Wisdom. Also Please Feel free to leave your own Pearls.

Much of this wisdom/advice will be aimed at happy men/teen's becouse that is what I am. If some or all of my Posts offend you I make no apologies, Some of the "Pearls" i will post you may not totaly agree with and I might not agree with them but even advice we do not agree with has the power to teach us about ourselfs.

So here it go's Take the Pearl's or leave them.

-Before you criticize queens, fairies, or someone who acts "too queer," consider where we'd be without them.

-When Dating, do everything you can to keep the game-playing to a minimum. Once you instigate the game, someone's going to win and someone's going to lose.

-Never dress more flamboyantly than Liberace.

-Loosen up. Being masculine doesn't mean being a statue. Wrists were made to bend.

-Being a happy man does not mean ignoring the other gender. Let women into your life.

-If something is wrong, fix it if you can. But train yourself not to worry. Worry never fixes anything.

- Before you lend your boyfriend money, consider this formula. Maximum money you'll lend pere month should equal the lesser of (a) the amount you can afford never to see again or (B ) your monthly income, divided by 100, times the number of years you've been together.

-Straights are often uncomfortable with public displays of our affection. Don't censor your behavior because of their insecurities, but still be respectful.

-When hugging a guy you like, let him let go. If he doesn't let go, it could be the start of something beautiful, or at least steamy.

Agreed 100% - This is the reason why 99.99% of all people here in Germany (and also in other european countries, answer to Brad's statement by people from Poland, Finland, France, Iceland,...: "OH yes!") consider Americans superficial. Of course our Business English teacher defends this since he originally comes from Indiana (and has been living over here for 20 years) by saying It's just a way to be nice; do you expect everybody to tell your life history or to have a medical check-up before giving the answer?

No of course not but if we don't want to know how somebody is doing then we simply say Hi (which can be done in a nice way too). And yes, we are confused when Americans start rolling their eyes when we truly tell how we are doing (why ask a question when you know the pre-defined answer "I'm fine, thanks." anyway?) And of course we do not tell our life's history when being asked.

Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome.

Arguing with your Boss is like wrestling with a pig in mud. After a while you realize that while you are getting dirty, the pig is actually enjoying it.

Help a man when he is in trouble and he will remember you when he is in trouble again.

Behind every successful man, is a surprised mother-in-law.

Whoever said money can't buy happiness, didn't know where to shop.

Alcohol doesn't solve any problems, but then again, neither does milk.

Most people are only alive because it is illegal to shoot them!!

Forgive your enemies but remember their names.

Please don't take these statements too seriously, maybe they even belong to the joke section. Jan, if you think so feel free to move this post.
