    How True

    There are five things that you cannot recover in life:

    (1) The Stone..........after it's thrown,
    (2) The Word..............after it's said,
    (3) The Occasion......after it's missed,
    (4) The Time............after it's gone.
    (5) A person..............after they die

    Innovation is the process that renews something that already exists and not, as is commonly assumed, the introduction of something new.

    Those words can only be spoken by a bitter person living a perfect life, always bearing a grudge and never having the courage to forgive and forget!

    I have been banned from another forum where Les posted these very words, and I posted my reply shown above to them!

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    If your presence doesn't make an impact;
    Your absence won't make a difference!

    Why...

    My reply to Les's post is simply a philosophical difference in my approach to life and the anonymous person who originally wrote/said those words!
