GRANA

I ate at a Chinese restaurant today for lunch and got my fortune cookie and had no idea what it meant.

This is so true in todays world.  People do not want to take any responsibility for anything.  We are a selfish people, and until we can get away from our selfishness we will be an indifferent people.

I agree with Mary Jo T.  So many people will complain about the state of things, but are unwiiling to do anything to help change things, or even help themselves.  In my opinion, you don't have the right to complain if you haven't even worked on the problem to begin with.

Dawn - what you said, "you don't have the right to complain if you haven't even worked on the problem to begin with"  is so very true.  We all hear so many people complaining so much but when asked what steps they have taken they reply, "Who? Me? It's none of MY business".

But I'm sure far from perfect and sometimes fail to step into something ..... it's so much easier to turn my back and ignore it  ~sigh~Embarassed

Excellent fortune cookie wisdom!! Thanks for sharing.

PS: On a lighter note, when we read our fortunes we always add the words...."in bed" to the end of the saying. It makes the fortune interesting and there is usually a chuckle or 2 as well!!

I have always thought that if you do not vote, you have no reason to complain!

Laughing  Thanks Barbara .... voting is one thing I do without fail.
I still remember the joy and importance of my very first vote.
Since then I failed on time to get to a primary (an important one) but I've never missed a vote again.

I received a fortune once and I saved it and taped it to my desk at work.  Those words of wisdom were:
"Nothing is good or bad but by comparison" 
I thought that was pretty good. Always made me think before complaining about something..you would not know if you were having a great day unless you had some bad ones to compare it to.  with luck, the good and great ones out number the bad.
