    Words of Wisdom

    When great thinkers and wordsmiths distill wisdom, insight or inspiration into a sentence or two, it
    can be very worthwhile to reflect on their handiwork from time to time for the value that may be added
    to our own lives.  Here are some of my favorites.
The Words of the Wise prod us to live well.
They are like nails hammered home,
holding life together.
