- Al Franken

If you hear, day after day, liberals are rooting against armed forces,

The right wing has had a radio apparatus for years and years,
so they've had minor leagues - they've had local rightwing

To laugh often and much;

In many ways, it is easier to be a good giver than a good receiver.
The giver chooses the gift and the timing.
More important, societal and religious traditions
tend to elevate the status of giver and lower the status of receiver.
When the Bible (Acts 20:32-35) speaks of it being
more blessed to give than to receive,
I believe that a better translation might be
"take" rather than "receive," as the context
of that passage is "coveting."
Certainly there is nothing blessed about coveting,
stealing, begging, or demanding,
however the skill of graciously receiving a freely offered gift
is another matter entirely.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

It is easier for a father to have children than for
children to have a real father.
- Pope John XXIII

It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend.

than to restrain them and direct them toward the patient labors of peace.

While you can and should keep your composure and happiness
regardless of circumstances - regardless of your friends,
family and co-workers - regardless of gossip, sarcasm, and negativity.
Nonetheless, life is much easier and more pleasant
when you spend as much time as possible
in the company of enthusiastic positive people -
not necessarily those who agree with you,
but those who respect your right to your point of view.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Art hurts.
Art urges voyages - and it is easier to stay at home.

Pray instead to be a stronger man or woman of God.
