Words from a Father

Husband of One, Father of Four

294. Moments

Do not pass moments, collect them.

293. Solitaire

Imagine how much further we would be technologically if Microsoft hadn’t included solitaire with their operating systems.

292. Spent Time

When you spend your time doing something, make sure it’s worth it.

291. Quotes: G.K. Chesterton on Meaninglessness

“Meaninglessness comes not from being weary of pain, but from being weary of pleasure.”

—G.K. Chesterton

290. Great Love

The greatest love comes at the greatest cost.

289. Umbrella

Make your umbrella solid — in build and in color.

288. Amiability

Supercilious disregard is as undermining as overt hostility.

Even when you strongly disagree with someone, keep your emotions in control and your attitude amiable.

287. Improve

“Um” is not a word.

“Because” is not an answer.

“Can’t” never did anything.

Not finishing is not acceptable.

Worrying never helps.

“Good enough” is giving up.

Ridding your life of these forms of laziness will immediately improve your perspective and your situation because it forces you to act in a mature fashion.

286. Medications

All medications, without exception, have side effects. Avoid medications if at all possible, but don’t live in pain.

285. What Children Want

Don’t become so important that you neglect your children.

Your children don’t care about your job or your status, they just want to feel loved and to spend time with you.
