Don’t let anyone try to make you feel as if your lot was hard. Go ahead, and let them see that you can do the best of any of them. Young, strong, active, and with a will to do, you will succeed. Boys that work make the most useful and prosperous men. Hannah Maria Nutting Benham Knapp

My child, listen closely to my teachings and learn common sense.
My advice is useful, so don’t turn away
.   Proverbs 4:1,2


more wisdom

I turned my attention to study, to explore, and to seek out wisdom and the reason for things. I learned that wickedness is stupid and foolishness is madness. Eccl.7:29

Wisdom is gained through experience and knowledge, but a lot of it is just common sense.
