Eclectic Wisdom

At thirteen feet above sea level, the Pappy Lama sits and ponders the wisdom of the ages. He shares his collected sayings with those seeking a higher plane of consciousness. I hope your life is enriched by this sage advice.

Politics is perhaps the only profession for which no preparation is thought necessary. - Robert Louis Stevenson

The man who says he is willing to meet you halfway is usually a poor judge of distance. - Laurence J. Peter

"The Piper Cub is the safest airplane in the world; it can just barely kill you." - Attributed to Max Stanley (Northrop test pilot)

"Any ship can be a minesweeper. Once."

There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

Men are like fine wine. They start out as grapes, and it's up to the women to stomp the crap out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Remember, "Barking dogs never bite twice in the same place."
