George Bernard Shaw said "Take care to get what you like or you will be forced to like what you get". I am sure that also means be careful what you wish for. Shaw was a playright, dramatist, equality of income advocate and defender of women's rights. He was born 1856 and died 1950. See biography at your right.
We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.
Life is surprising and that’s a good thing, because it’s nice to know that when you least expect it, things can take a sudden turn for the better. You can actually have the life that you think only happens for other people. Isn’t that wonderful?
Take care to get what you like or you will be forced to like what you get.
—George Bernard Shaw
On judging others
If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
A proverb is no proverb to you until life has illustrated it.
On writing well
Put it before them briefly so they will read it, clearly so they will appreciate it, picturesquely so they will remember it and, above all, accurately so they will be guided by its light.
I would rather have a good plan today than a perfect plan two weeks from now.
—General George S. Patton
When you are asked if you can do a job, tell ’em, "Certainly I can!" Then get busy and find out how to do it.
Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.
Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.
—Henry David Thoreau
We may be very busy, we may be very efficient, but we will also be truly effective only when we begin with the end in mind.

Hone your skills for work and family and you hone them for living life to the fullest
