I went to Chinese Restaurant this afternoon and got some Fortune Cookies afterwards. It seems like a good idea to share some of the wise sayings between us.

Here is what I got today: biggrin.gif

A good friendship is often more important than a passionate romance.
very true, especially in marriage
I always liked this one....

That wasn't chicken.
roll.gif roll.gif roll.gif Corona!!!!!!

The last one I saved said "You will be the best"'s a little vague and open-ended...haven't seen the back of it yet.
"Your strength lies in your continued belief that what you just ate
was indeed duck."
"Tacos like sunshine -- will do anything to find it again."
Here is one that I got "It is better to give then recive". biggrin.gif
Here is another one "If the clouds are streaky it will rain for a weekee". roll.gif biggrin.gif thumbsup.gif
Here are a couple:

If you continually give, you will continually have.
No man is without enemies.
"There is more to the exchange than things exchanged" rolleyes.gif
My husband's favorite

You can't climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets. biggrin.gif
This is my all-time favorite, typo and all:
"You will have so money,
you won't know what to do." blink.gif
I got this last night and i'm still trying to make heads or tails of it.

"Fortunately people dont always get what they wish for."
Hmmm that reminds me of something my mother used to say.
"Watch what you wish for. You just might get it." Which means, you wish for something, get it, and it turns out to not be what you expected. Once you get your wish, ya gotta deal with it. biggrin.gif

Kinda like PotS? (in my opinion) It was good, just not what I had thought. down.gif
This one I got the other day:

" Someone close to you is thinking great thoughts about you."

I looked around to make sure no one was spying on me. LOL
Credit on this one was listed as:
"a quote found on a packet of sugar in a restaurant in 1982"

"Experience is a wonderful thing.
It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again."
One of my faves:

"A closed mouth gathers no feet."
through unity you will complete your duty
By completeing your duty you acheive your destiny

I got one at a resturaunt a while back and saved it. It was a fairly new resturaunt, and I don't think the person writing these was a an expert linguist.

"The waterfall of life will push you up into aerospace."

How's that for enigmatic? laugh.gif
for every door that closes
another awaits to be open

The starting point is the self.
Its essence is water.
Only clarity....
Willingness to change is effective now.

Keep your friends close , those who owe you money closer.

I bathe myself in generosity
Emotions of praise toward my fellow beings
And enlightened understanding of my life's experiences

Here's one that I got yesterday... "Relax and enjoy yourself."

BTW - my lucky numbers are 1, 5, 10, 15, 40 and 43. shock.gif

Time to play the lottery boys! bleh.gif

Also, did you know that Bank in Chinese is Yin-Hang? roll.gif

Edit: I can't spell to save my life... lol
whistling.gif I once got one that I never read cause I ate the paper along with the cookie shy.gif

Ever get that? Pop the cookie in your mouth, only to remember after you've eaten it about the paper?
open before use
it could save your life wink3.gif

Not from a fortune cookie, but what the heck...

A friend will help you move.
A good friend will help you move the body. laugh.gif
No future with out a past.

(grr..bad englisch! shock.gif )
with in the darkest night
you can find enlightenment
Never wear your best pants when you go to fight for freedom. rolleyes.gif
don't put off till tomorrow
what you can forget about today
A starship ride has been promised to you by the Galactic Wizard.

If you open a fortune cookie and find a fortune like this, here's a tip:
Don't eat the cookie.
what you can't change
don't let it change you
The past is fun, the future is horrible, so forget the future and put it off until it is the past.
look not for the answer but for the question
a stitch in time, saves nine
If you continually give, you will continually have.

Always walk a mile in someone else's shoes,
Because, if worse comes to worse,
You're a mile away and you have their shoes!

Gifts according to Ti'Ana's father "Aren't frivolus things, they are very necesary. They're demonstrations of love and affection, and their "excess" makes life more than a mere drudgery. You can do without many things, but not gifts, however small and insignificant they might be."

Something to think about when we give or receive a gift wink3.gif
