Weekend Wisdom: Wise Words

Welcome to Weekend Wisdom. I know Weekend Wisdom has been scarce this year. Hopefully that will change next year.

Today’s post was inspired by Quote Garden’s Wise Words Quotations page. 

Enjoy these words of wisdom.

Weekend Wisdom: Being Great!

Today’s Weekend Wisdom is inspired by QuoteGarden’s “Dare To Be Great!” section. These quotes also are right in line with what my friend Jeff Nischwitz said Tuesday night during his speech.

Enjoy and then either go light your fire or throw some logs on your fire if it’s been smoldering for awhile.


Success isn’t a result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire.


Arnold H. Glasow

If you want to make your dreams come true, the first thing you have to do is wake up.


J.M. Power

You may not know where you’re going, but so long as you spread your wings the winds will carry you.

C. JoyBell C.

Great ideas need landing gear as well as wings.

Weekend Wisdom: 3 Blessings

Here are 3 blessings for you my dear readers.  Have a joy filled Sunday.


May brooks and trees and singing hills
Join in the chorus too,
And every gentle wind that blows
Send happiness to you.

Irish Blessing

May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day.
May songbirds serenade you every step along the way.
May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that’s always blue.
And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.

Irish Blessing

May God grant you many years to live,
For sure He must be knowing
The earth has angels all too few
And Heaven is overflowing.

Irish Blessing
