Forgive, O Lord, my little jokes on Thee, and I’ll forgive Thy great big joke on me.
Always fall in with what you’re asked to accept. Take what is given, and make it over your way. My aim in life has always been to hold my own with whatever’s going. Not against: with.
I’m not a bit changed – not really. I’m only just pruned down and branched out. The real me – back here – is just the same.

We love things we love what they are.
No man can be a failure if he thinks he’s a success; If he thinks he is a winner, then he is.
Pressed into service means pressed out of shape.

Most of the change we think we see in life is due to truths being in and out of favor.
I’d just as soon play tennis with the net down.
