  1. Some gems there - and some painful truths too.

  2. Money can't by happiness, but it can buy chocolate and that's just as good.

  3. What a great list! I often have cause to remember something along the lines of the John Glenn quote - something I read years ago. Fifty percent of practicing doctors graduated in the bottom half of their class. Erk!

    1. And they're all just 'practicing'.

    2. Hahaha! I never thought of that, but I'll remember it now!

  4. Great quotes, the whole lot of them. Some are familiar; some aren't, but they're ALL terrific.

  5. I enjoyed all of these quotes - thanks.

    All the best Jan
