Thursday's Thoughts - Theme: Insults

This Week's Theme: Insults
“The only gracious way to accept an insult is to ignore it; if you can't ignore it, top it; if you can't top it, laugh at it; if you can't laugh at it, it's probably deserved.” - J. Russel Lynes

“If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity, it must be known, that we are at all times ready for War.” - George Washington

“The way to procure insults is to submit to them: a man meets with no more respect than he exacts.” - William Hazlitt

I love this!!! This is one of my motto's. It is so true,and so rewarding to one's self. One who throws out insults is most likely to be feeling guilt on the same subject that they are trying to put onto someone else. I just feel sorry for those people because "They" are the one's that have a problem with themselves. Enough said!!!!!!!
