Here are other quotes from the book of Amish Proverbs.
"When you speak, always remember that God is one of your listeners."
"Swallowing words before you say them is so much better than having to eat them afterward."
"A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery of a detour."
"The key to contentment is to realize that life is a gift - not a right."
"If you think you're too small to make a difference, you haven't been in bed with a mosquito."
Words to ponder and bring to mind again and again. I guess that's what makes them proverbs.
