George Washington's 1789 Thanksgiving Proclamation

Whereas it is the duty of all nations to
acknowledge the providence of Almighty God,
to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits,
and humbly to implore His protection and favor;
and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by
their joint committee, requested me to "recommend
to the people of the United States a day of
public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by
acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and
signal favors of Almighty God, especially by
affording them an opportunity peaceably to
establish a form of government for their safety
and happiness:"

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not
exist in nature, nor do the children of men as
a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is not
safer in the long run than outright exposure.
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.

Golden Oldie

May those that love us, love us;
and those that don't love us, May God turn their hearts;

and if He doesn't turn their hearts, may He turn their
ankles so we'll know them by their limping.

Golden Oldie

An Irishman proposed to his girl
on St. Patrick's Day and gave her
a ring with a synthetic diamond.
On learning it wasn't real, she
protested vehemently about his
cheapness. "It was in honor of St.
Patrick's Day" he smiled.
"I gave you a sham rock."

All the adversity I've had in my life,
all my troubles and obstacles,
have strengthened me.
You may not realize it when it happens,
but a kick in the teeth may be the best
thing in the world for you.

I sneezed a sneeze into the air
It fell to earth I know not where
But hard and cold were the looks of those
In whose vicinity I snoze
