Default "Words of Wisdom"

In the 1950's I boldly predicted that computers would be passe in the 1960's.

In the early 60's I predicted that the Beatles would never make it in the field of music.

In the late 60's I saw Lew Alcindor play high school basketball and predicted that he would never make it as a college player.

It's just that the wisdom of today may not be so wise tomorrow.

Happiness is the best revenge

Don't live you might die

Don't sweat the small stuff and don't pet the sweaty stuff😳

During my tour in Vietnam, I kept up the morale of my fellow soldiers by saying ''don't sweat the small s... ''.
When time came for us to leave, many of the guys thanked me for helping them make it thru that long year.

My friends who survived the Vietnam War will never forget everything that they saw and experienced.

I did not intend to hijack this thread about wisdom by bringing up my Vietnam experience. But the reality is that I did pick up a lot of wisdom during that time. My outlook on life certainly changed a lot.
