beardedgentlemen "Lord, thou knowest better than myself that I am growing older and will soon be old. Keep me from becoming too talkative, and especially from the unfortunate habit of thinking that I must say something on every subject and at every opportunity.

Release me from the idea that I must straighten out other peoples' affairs. With my immense treasure of experience and wisdom, it seems a pity not to let everybody partake of it. But thou knowest, Lord, that in the end I will need a few friends.

Keep me from the recital of endless details; give me wings to get to the point.

Grant me the patience to listen to the complaints of others; help me to endure them with charity. But seal my lips on my own aches and pains -- they increase with the increasing years and my inclination to recount them is also increasing.

I will not ask thee for improved memory, only for a little more humility and less self-assurance when my own memory doesn't agree with that of others. Teach me the glorious lesson that occasionally I may be wrong.

Keep me reasonably gentle. I do not have the ambition to become a saint -- it is so hard to live with some of them -- but a harsh old person is one of the devil's masterpieces.

Make me sympathetic without being sentimental, helpful but not bossy. Let me discover merits where I had not expected them, and talents in people whom I had not thought to possess any. And, Lord, give me the grace to tell them so.
Amen
Prayer of an Anonymous Abbess"

Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles 2mon

He looks dangerous.' Well, he's on the streets because of mental illness. He probably had a job and a home."- Eric McCormack 3mon

beardedgentlemen "We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using Nature's inexhaustible sources of energy- sun, wind and tide. I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that"- Thomas Alva Edison, 1931 4mon

beardedgentlemen " People have and will continue to judge you based on your appearance. The absurd reality is that we form assumptive verdicts on people within the first 3 seconds of meeting them, and we spend the next 90 seconds trying to confirm our initial conclusion. Thus, you have already been judged by the person you are interacting with before you even open your mouth.
Most men know well enough that looking fine comes easy but looking sharp is hard. There is something about a well-dressed man that suggests a strength of character and body. The attention to detail required to look sharp is not a sign of fussy self-consciousness; rather, it demonstrates strength and a keen self-awareness.
It can be hard to be noticed, sometimes. With more and more competition in the workforce, coupled with easier access to low-cost, high-style clothing, standing out with a power suit just doesn’t cut it anymore. The sharply dressed man gets noticed amongst the crowd because he is different. You must create your own unique style to stand out. Many men are well-dressed nowadays, but impeccably dressed men with a unique style are rare."- The power of the perfectly dressed man
