Advice From My Father

I’ve learned so much listening to my father at the dinner table over the years. This Father’s Day, I’d like to share a few of his wise words with you. They are: 

  • Never speak ill of those who have had you as a guest in their home.
  • Never do business with one who has cheated on a spouse.
  • Never forget that it takes only one person, one idea or one action to change your life forever.
  • Pay less attention to what people say and carefully watch what they do.
  • Even during inflation, a dime can be used as screwdriver.
  • Don’t forget that right is right even if no one does it, and wrong is wrong even if everyone does it.
  • When in a position to hire someone, ask yourself, “Is this someone I’d invite to my home for dinner?”
  • It doesn’t help to have a road map if you can’t read it.
  • When you meet a man you are interested in, ask him the name of the book he is currently reading.

“Colors fade, temples crumble, empires fall, but wise words endure.” ~Edward Thorndike 

With love, appreciation and the utmost respect … Happy Father’s Day!
