Tonight’s Chinese take-out delivered unexpected doses of inspiration…

Inspiration is everywhere.  It is in that hummingbird hovering over the red columbine.   It is in the gentle smile and words of Maya Angelou.  It is in so many movies, when protagonists overcome much difficulty to arrive at an end goal.

Hey, it was even in the fortune cookies that came with my Chinese food tonight!  Three little sayings – they came in neat, crispy, little 3-D pac-man shape cookies.  I have gently unwrapped and lay them out for you below:

I hear and I forget.

I see and I remember.

I do and I understand.”

A man’s dreams are an index to his greatness.”

Consume less.  Share more.  Enjoy life.”

Enjoy life indeed!  Do you remember other memorable sayings from fortune cookies?  I know of someone who have kept several in his wallet.  Or have you drawn inspiration from the most unexpected people, places or things?  Do share!
