Wisdom Game

Post a wise saying (can't be your own) that uses at least one word from the previous quote. You get 1 point for each word that you use again for as many times as the word is repeated.

For example:

"A man is too apt to forget that in this world he cannot have everything. A choice is all that is left to him."

next post:

"All that is gold does not glitter; not all those that wander are lost."

= 5 points

Just keep tallying up your score...the winner gets a trip for 2 to Tahiti (not really) :goofy:

The slate is clean so the first poster can post any wise saying and they get 5 early bird points!

Oops...The quotes shouldn't be longer than 2 sentences....my bad.

If you do not wish to be prone to anger, do not feed the habit; give it nothing which may tend to its increase.

Melo = 3 points


Paul and I met on the Bazaar on the 14th January (he joined my progressive rock forum that day)

July 3rd he flew to England to meet me

We fell in love while he drove all over the place coz I cannot read maps (we were supposed to go to Ingleton - but touched Darlington 4 times, Pierce Bridge 6 times, Scotch Corner twice and Bernard Castle twice and we never did make it to Ingleton)

It has been so long and so much has happened in between...

Arrived in Houston on October 29th 2006

Married 17th November 2006

Lost my father 8th January 2007 (all dates are a blur after this)

Conditional Green Card dated 24th October 2007

We learn wisdom from failure much more than from success. We often discover what will do, by finding out what will not do; and probably he who never made a mistake never made a discovery.

2 points here...

Steven = 4 points

p.s. You can look up all the quotes (google, etc.)...it's not about knowing all these quotes off hand, but finding common words among the different quotes. :yes:

Don't be discouraged by a failure. It can be a positive experience. Failure is, in a sense, the highway to success, inasmuch as every discovery of what is false leads us to seek earnestly after what is true, and every fresh experience points out some form of error which we shall afterwards carefully avoid.

3 more points - total = 6

Well I should look more carefully - here is the updated versio:

Failure is, in a sense, the highway to success, inasmuch as every discovery of what is false leads us to seek earnestly after what is true, and every fresh experience points out some form of error which we shall afterwards carefully avoid.

Children, who play life, discern its true law and relations more clearly than men, who fail to live it worthily, but who think that they are wiser by experience, that is, by failure.

Nearly all marriages, even happy ones, are mistakes: in the sense that almost certainly (in a more perfect world, or even with a little more care in this very imperfect one) both partners might be found more suitable mates. But the real soul-mate is the one you are actually married to.

Melo: 9 + 14 = 23

That's not wise. That's bunk.
