The lighter side: knowledge, wisdom. And more

Late. Incomplete.
The operative words best describing the paperwork from several clients.
(This past Monday was the deadline for filing taxes; for those who filed extensions.)

Let’s just say my phone conversations were full of “excitement.”
My voice kept going up several decibels at the time.
And I don’t have a small voice to begin with!!

To relax, I took breaks and watched TV — to see the great job our politicians are doing.
(Just kidding!)

To lighten-up and keep things in perspective I turned to some of my favorites:
Mark Twain. And a few others.

Churchill on Liberals and Conservatives:

“Any man who is under 30, and is not a liberal,
has no heart;
and any man who is over 30, and is not a conservative,
has no brains.”

Bertrand Russell on why we have problems in this world:

“The whole problem with the world is that
fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves,
and wiser people so full of doubts.”

Twain on knowledge, wisdom (or the lack of it):

I would rather have my ignorance
than another man’s knowledge,
because I have so much more of it.

Hope you enjoyed these as much as I did.
