Words of Wisdom Through the Ages

I like blogging and recently I've not shared much from my personal life, but the things I do blog about are some of the things I read and chew on for a few days. I like sharing these thoughts through my blog because it allows me to share with others. Sometimes, I like sharing things that make me laugh. Below are some comments that make me think and laugh - my favorite stuff to read. These are comments from people in different stages of life.
