My experience has taught me that a man who has no vices has damned few virtues.

I'm not sure if I agree with the first quote, but whole-heartedly agree with the second. After all, like fine wine, we're getting better with age. :>)

But, Lilo, according to Heloise, think of all the useful things one can do with vinegar --probably much more useful in the long run than "fine wine".

Anneliese, I, too, have enjoyed your quotes, this week. Thank you.

I don't understand the first Abraham Lincoln quote at all. What's he talking about?

My take on it and the time he lived in, people who are so very selfrightious and uptight that they frown on anything smelling of enjoyment are the least likely to help other people. I met a several of that type which will not help because it is against their perceived interpretation of strict rules.

Thanks for the reply, anneliese. Your quote was thought provoking, therefore the question. I've met people that "frown" on people who seems to have fun in life. I've also wondered why certain people will not help other people.
