After a book of 100 life philosophy and mantra quotes I had written for myself over the years just last year, I’ve been writing more for my next book. What I thought was going to be a dangerous Confucius in my old age, armed with life philosophies, is ultimately going to end up more than twice as bad, because I think I will be able to write far more than another 100 in the next 30 years or so! Oh, pity those who will be my friends then, and my wagging pointing fingers, LOL! This is my latest life philosophy quote and mantra for myself.

In the printed version of my book containing all these quotes, the Table of Contents is dead smack in the middle, serving as the “symbolic essay” to this quote. This design feature served three functions:
Second Best Is The Best Of The Rest

A Great Proverb Needs No Explanation
What makes a great proverb? For me, it should need no explanation for what it means. Yet, it should allow lots of discussion, expounding, thought, and contemplation if one wished to engage with it. There should be a lack of exception to its message, or a very limited number of exceptions, at most. It should be short, easy to say, and easy to remember. Basically, universal, deep, short, sweet.
