man’s best teacher — author unknown

peteydogWisdom seldom falls from high places

The mighty and the splendid have taught me little

I have learned more from a dog I once owned

than from all the great books I have read

The wisdom of my dog is the product of

his inability to conceal his wants

When he yearns to be loved

there is no pouting in the corner

there are no games entitled

“Guess What’s the Matter with Me”

He puts his head on my lap

wags his tail and looks up at me

with kind eyes, waiting to be petted

No professor or teacher ever told me

I might live a more successful life

if I simply asked for love when I need it

About greg w

I believe chocolate in virtually any configuration is the finest dessert in the history of mankind. I believe my wife is the sexiest woman in the world. I believe modern capitalism will never be replaced by a different -- or better -- form of economics. I believe in clutch hitting in baseball. I believe the Kimber 1911 .45 ACP is the finest handgun ever made in America. I believe the Mossberg Flex 500 pump-action 12 gauge shotgun is the best home defense ever made in America. I believe Tom Waits is the best songwriter of my generation. I believe unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. I believe in equality for everyone, except reporters and photographers. As CS Lewis once beautifully wrote, I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. I believe that, on balance, Christianity has done more good for humans than bad. I believe it is better to tell the truth than a lie. I believe it is better to be free than to be a slave. I believe it is better to know than to be ignorant, With that being said, I believe there is a profound difference between knowledge and wisdom. I believe if I yell at the TV during a Colts game, they will play better. Finally, I believe I am in long-term recovery from a number of deep-seated issues that supported and drove my addictions.
