Hey Everyone,

Its a big, wide, wonderful world & how wonderful to have a place like @Wattpad to share our words and literary wares.


The three #} best pieces of advice, I ever received:

1). MEMORIZE Shakespeare's, "Sweet are the uses of adversity which like the toad ugly & venomous wears yet a precious jewel in its crown, & this our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stone, & good in every thing. I would not change it."
From his play, "As You Like It."

2). A rubber scraper is worth its weight in gold.

3). Fannie Flagg: "Don't give up before the miracle happens,"

S.Carolina Motto and a new favorite quote: "While I breathe, I hope."
There's more: "While I hope I love. " "While I love, I live."

In Latin 'tis 'Dum spiro, spero; dum spero, amo; dum amo, vivo."
