My wife was so jealous, she would look at the calendar and insist on knowing who May was.

—Rodney Dangerfield

Thought for today

We need someone to believe in us...if we do well, we want our work commended, our faith corroborated. The individual who thinks well of you, who keeps his mind on your good qualities, and does not look for your flaws, is your friend. Who is my brother? I'll tell you: he is the one who recognizes the good in me.

—Elbert Hubbard
