Ancient Chinese Secret…

By using that title, I truly am dating and aging myself.  For those of you who are young, that was a line from a famous commercial for a detergent in the 1970s.  But I digress.  Lately my coworker and I have had a fairly regular routine of ordering Chinese takeout – we have it delivered to us at work.  We get a lot – enough that it lasts us for at least two meals.  Besides the food, I also order a package of Chinese crispy noodles for Boris, one of my seventeen-month old cats.  And we also order extra fortune cookies.  We have had quite a few good ones lately.  Some are serious, some are profound and some are just silly.  I thought I would share some of them with you today.

  • If something is worth fighting for, fight,
  • Now is the time to pursue a new hobby.
  • Confidence of success is almost success.
  • Your modesty will shame those with lesser knowledge.
  • A stranger is a friend you haven’t met yet.
  • Do what you wish, as long as it does not harm anyone.
  • A good evening is one spent in good company.
  • A man without aim is like a clock without hands. As useless if it turns as if it stands.
  • You will enjoy razor sharp spiritual vision today.
  • Your future is right next to you.
  • Blank. No words at all. Just lottery numbers on the back.
  • My personal favorite – You like Chinese food

What funny or relevant fortunes have you gotten? Please, share!
