the best thing you can do is the right thing,
the next best thing is the wrong thing,
and the worst thing you can do is nothing."

"Take it easy. Make it nice." My maternal grandfather on not rushing things in life.

"It's nice to see you come and it's nice to see you go." Also from my maternal grandfather. His take on Poor Richard's (Ben Franklin) "Fish and visitors smell in three days." Time for the visit to be over.
