Keep in mind always the two constant Laws of Frisbee:
(1) The most powerful force in the world is that of a disc
straining to land under a car, just out of reach (this
force is technically termed "car suck").
(2) Never precede any maneuver by a comment more predictive
than "Watch this!"

Golden Oldie

I used to think I was poor. Then they
told me I wasn't poor, I was needy. Then
they told me it was self-defeating to
think of myself as needy. I was deprived.
(Oh not deprived but rather underprivileged)
Then they told me that underprivileged was
overused. I was disadvantaged. I still
don't have a dime. But I have a
great vocabulary.

It takes a lot of things to prove you are smart,

If we were drowning in the ocean
and there was (sic) only one life preserver....

I'd miss you terribly and think of you often.

It seemed rather incongruous that in a
society of super-sophisticated communication,
we often suffer from a shortage of listeners.

I would rather be a superb meteor,
every atom of me in magnificent glow,
than a sleepy and permanent planet.
The proper function of man is to live, not to exist.
I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them.
I shall use my time.

-Jack London

Never seem wiser, nor more learned, than the people you are with.
Wear your learning, like your watch, in a private pocket, and do not pull
it out and strike it merely to show you have one.
If you are asked what o'clock it is, tell it, but do not proclaim
it hourly and unasked, like the watchman.

-Lord Chesterfield

When a doctor himself needs doctoring so that another doctor
doctors the doctor, does the doctor doing the doctoring doctor
the doctor the way the doctor being doctored wants to be doctored
or does the doctor doing the doctoring of the doctor being doctored
doctor as he wants to doctor?

The Bible tells us to love our neighbors,
and also to love our enemies;
probably because they are generally the same people.

If you wait until you can

instead of something for somebody,

Industry Fact: When Elvis Presley died in 1977 there were
37 Elvis impersonators in the world.

Today (Oct 1993) there are 48,000.

If the current trend continues,
by the year 2010, one out of every three
people in the world will be an Elvis impersonator.

The Pepper and Salt Association wants to turn the
English language outside in, wants phrases changed
kaboodle and kit. People should listen to roll 'n'
rock, eat butter and bread, and travel fro and to.

Why? Because what this country needs is a sense of
wrong and right, fair play and justice, order and law.
There are cons and pros, but true believers will
consider it a matter of death and life, a swim or
sink proposition.

Please consider immediately upon return from the grocery store opening
any new jar of peanut butter purchased on the trip and consuming at
least one teaspoon of the delicacy. This practice ensures that the
rest of the jar is fair game the next time you have left-overs!!!!!
You will be rewarded for your forethought and planning!!

Arthur's Laws of Love:
(1) People to whom you are attracted invariably think you
remind them of someone else.
(2) The love letter you finally got the courage to send will be
delayed in the mail long enough for you to make a fool of
yourself in person.
