“Early to bed, Early to rise, makes a man (person)

Healthy, wealthy and wise”.


Such excellent advice Franklin gave, advice to guide a lifetime.


Anonymous, the famous author of most proverbs, is also a lifetime companion:

“Make hay while the sun shines” and its good friend, “Look before you leap”;

“A stitch in time saves nine”;

“The squeaky wheel gets the grease”.


And “Don’t worry, be happy”,

A phrase Meher Baba (perhaps an avatar) put on a poster

And Bobby McFerrin turned into a hit song.


Thank you, ancients and moderns,

For brief, catchy tips on living life well, joyously,

Gloriously, uproariously.
