Pearls of Wisdom, Part I

Have you ever taken the time to notice the little pearls of wisdom our friends and colleagues impart with their emails? I am talking about the little blurbs they put in their signatures. Sure, some redirect you to their website or blog or MySpace page, but some also add some great quotations, sage advice, if you will.

I have been paying particular attention to these over the past several days and would like to share with you some of my favorites.

“Try not. Do or do not. There is no try.”

Here is some sage advice from the vertically challenged Jedi master himself. He tells you, don’t just say you are going to try, just do it. (Who knew Nike was such a big Star Wars fan?! Or perhaps the wise master simply turned in his light saber for a really sweeeeet promotions gig with Nike!)

To writers everywhere Mark Twain leaves his advice:
"The difference between the almost right word & the right word is really a
large matter--it's the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning."
~Mark Twain

Least we not forget the late master of wit, the great Groucho Marx who said:
"Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend;
inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."

Seriously, think about it!

I have been having great fun with these little gems, I hope you do too! I'll be back tomorrow with some more examples. Think about what sage advice would YOU like to impart to the world. Just a thought....
