Compromise


Since each of us is not the only person on Earth, we each can’t have it totally our way all the time.  Quite often we have to make do with just some of the pie or else go hungry.  And what’s so wrong with sharing the pie, anyway?  It usually makes for a more enjoyable and interesting meal.

Things turn out best for the people
who make the best out of the way things turn out.

There can be no victories without battles.
                     There can be no peaks without valleys.
                                        There can be no roses without thorns.



The only way to settle a disagreement
is on the basis of what's right,
not who's right.



The time to win a fight is before it starts.

The art of being wise is
….the art of knowing what to overlook.
William James



    People with clenched fists cannot shake hands.
