Lessons from the Past

Sometimes we get so mired in our everyday lives that we need a new perspective on life, but it can be difficult to step back far enough to get a different view. In the dark days of winter, humour can be an effective antidote to the February blahs! Hopefully the following will provide some inspiration and a smile…

Eleven Lessons from Noah's Ark…

1. Don't miss the boat.
2. Remember that we are all in the same boat.
3. Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.
4. Stay fit. When you're 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.
5. Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job.
6. Build your future on high ground.
7. For safety's sake, travel in pairs.
8. Speed isn't always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.
9. When you're stressed, float awhile.
10. Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs, the Titanic by professionals.
11. No matter how severe the storm, there is always a rainbow waiting.
