PRESIDENTS PATCH: Volume 10 , Issue 1 Jan . 2010


Happy New Year!!!


New Years Thoughts,
Recently I read about a woman getting into her new car, starting it and suddenly seeing in red
“!” show up on her car. I thought , Gee, maybe it would be nice to have one of those in our mind’s eye to let us know that “something” needed paying attention to. The way my mind works lately my brain world be constant “!!!”
At any rate, following are a few thoughts I picked up here and there in 2009 that I want to
remember in 2010:
! “Everyone is entitled to his own opinions, but not his own facts.”Senator Daniel Moynihan
! “The problem with (add any government person’s name) wasn’t that he knew he was wrong. It
was that it was too important to him that he might be right.”
! “No pleasure is worth giving up for the sake of two years in an old folks home.” London Mail
! “The internet is just a world of passing around notes in a classroom.” Jon Stewart
! “Without research, what you say is just your opinion.” Unknown
! “Great civilizations are defined by the fiber of their people, their demises are defined by inflated egos of their leaders.” Kathleen Amers Wazny, Iran
! “I have never seen a piece of writing, political or non-political, that does not have a slant. It slants to the way a person learns, and no person is born perpendicular .” E. B. White, Wall Street Journal
! “Being taught in business schools? Wall Street Journal --
* Ethics
* Global Awareness
* Innovative Thinking
! “The legal process is only about three things, hatred, fear or envy...there are no facts of the case!
There are two frictions which the opposing teams seek to impress upon the jury.” This Week
On a less sober note:
! “At every party there are two kinds of people.. Those who want to go home and those who don’t. The trouble is, they are usually married to each other.” Ann Landers
!. “ And my favorite poet, Edna St. Vincent Malloy, said: “ It’s not true that life is one ???? thing
after another: It is one ???? thing over and over.”

Happy New Year !!
