Day 6: Wise Words?

Because I can be lazy sometimes - always, given half the chance actually - I've decided to be a bit slack with today's post. As you will now see..

So, wise words... Are these wise words? "When you lose, don't lose the lesson"

Or how about these words - "Take into account that great love and great achievement involve great risk." Are they wise?

Well, some geezer called the Dalai Lama said them. That's according to Go Go With The Flow, anyway.

As to wise words I may well once have said. Once upon a time, when the moon was yellow... These'll be them: wise words of wisdom a la Boring John.

PS And them mythical creatures will have to wait their turn till tomorrow.

Now then, don't go misquoting me, Mr Boring! I *didn't* say the Dalai Lama said all this - I specifically said I could find no sign of these wise words on his website - but they're still worth repeating.
Personally my favourite is
"Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon" ... which pretty much sums up the aspiration (if not the reality!) of my own blog,

Reckless abandon? Love and cooking? That does not sound like the job for a pedant, eh Flow?
