Thoughts until next week

A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.

Saying what we think gives us a wider conversational range than saying what we know.

If it’s painful to criticize your friends it’s okay to do so; But if you take the slightest pleasure in doing so, then that’s the time to hold your tongue.
