Time for a break from family history. Here is a collection of quote from The Old Timer Says: A Writing Journal by Wisconsin Historian Jerry Apps.
When we forget our histories we forget who we are.
Most of what absolutely must be done today can wait until tommorrow.
A good nights sleep can do much to calm an angry mind.
In our never-ending quest for more, we sometimes forget to appreciate what we already have.
In your busy life, take time to remember.
Sometimes the hardest part of learning something new is getting rid of an old idea.
No matter how fast things change, hold on to a few that don’t.
The road home is often the longest.
It’s better to make your own dust than to travel in someone else’s.
There is more to planing corn than putting seed in the ground.
Sometime the harder you look, the less you see.
You don’t learn patience by hurrying.
An old horse; an old dog and an old farmer have much in common: they are s l o w but wise.
Its alright to have nothing to say as long as you don’t say it.
