Someone once told me, that if you ever stop learning its time to hang up the keys bc you are on a dangerous road.

Thats why I keep my tag as rookie solo driver, im a 6yr rookie out here always learning something.

"Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: "

This is the first part of a quote from a famous scientist. Hint: he traveled around the world on a "Beagle".

This can apply to some new drivers. Before you experience driving for yourself, you might feel very confident. Once you get out there and see what it's like, that knowledge gives you a healthy respect for the potential hazards you will be facing everyday.

Makes perfect sense, good sir. Great (and wise!) words~!! My hubby learns something every day and relays it to me. . . and it's not all 'fun' .... LoL.

Let's see .. WOODSTOCK (the yellow bird) traversed the world on SNOOPY (beagle) . . .on a dog house! ... (does that count? LoL.. i think i know the real answer, but not sure.)

Fine words, for sure, though! I'm keeping these on rolodex cards . . . for my own personal keeps!

RD, that's my husband's biggest fear, if/when I get out there with y'all. . . He's afraid I think I know more than I do. AND HE'S DANG RIGHT.

It isn't Woodstock, Anne, but I love the way you reasoned things out to come to that conclusion.

LOL! In that case you should definitely have a healthy respect for the potential hazards out here.

Thanks, RD ! I try . . . it's all I had.

Yes, mad & healthy respect for y'all, seriously ... and THEN some.

Next quote: (Nobody'll get this, unless the o/p shows 'back' up...< hint!)

The only thing that stops you from getting what you want in life is the story you tell yourself about why you can't have it.

Stay safe & well, my pals! Snow is still pummeling Ohio.. glad we are HOME. For now.

Okay, one more.. and yes y'all's. Quotes OF Quotes. I like exercising the good ole' memoirs of the mind, haha!

Is it Pain, or is it Pleasure? Is it Work, or is it just Weariness? Is it a Living, or something more akin to a Lifestyle?

Okay Anne, I gave it a full day just to let others guess. Then you bumped the quote right up to the front page and still no one took a shot at it! I confess that one came from me. I was in a contemplative mood that day and it produced some thoughts that just sort of came rolling out. Occasionally that happens.

This was said by Charles Darwin. He traveled around the world on a ship called the HMS Beagle

Okay, here's a one-trick one:

"girls comb their hair in rearview mirrors and the boys try to look so tough..."

I've got thousands of these in my head.
