While taking this medicine, extra precaution should be taken not to offend people. If taken for prolonged periods, may impair perception, causing hope to migrate. If you saw a commercial for wealth on TV, it would show pictures of happy people holding hands in the park. Meanwhile, the announcer would be listing all the ways it can ruin your kidneys, rot your stomach, cause sudden heart failure, and destroy your life."
Andy Stanley, How to Be Rich: It's Not What You Have. It's What You Do With What You Have

Our Thought
One of our favorite motivational quotes comes from Robert Rivers. And our site is based on his words of wisdom:
"No person is a pillar of strength and wisdom unto themselves. Each of us need support through our lives even if only for a few minutes, or on a few occasions."
We hope this site, Words of Wisdom, provide you with positive thoughts that add a bit of inspiration and motivation for your day. No matter what you are going through at this point in your life, someone else has faced it before. We hope you find wisdom in these messages and from the experience of others.
