My shelves are filled with old diaries; and the diaries filled with old scrawls--some actually copied off the backs of matchboxes. I  term them...

                                                         MATCHBOX WISDOM

1. Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.
2.One of life's mysteries is how a two pound box of candy can make a person gain five pounds.
2.A fine is a tax for doing wrong. A tax is a fine for doing well.
4. Anyone who thinks that he is too small to make a difference has never been in bed with a mosquito.
5.Always keep a spare pair of shoes in your office/vehicle.
6. The one time you put your feet up is the one time the boss will walk into the  office.
7.A person with a tidy desk is doing no work.
8. Ugly plants grow faster and better than beautiful  plants.
9.People who say, " I wish I had time to read" are not readers.
10. A penny saved is a penny saved. Think bigger.
11.When you don't know what you are doing, do it neatly.
12.When you cross a one-way road, always  look both ways.
