Words of Wisdom

It’s summertime in many parts of the world, which means people are taking much needed vacations and holidays. Even if you can’t get away for a week or two, there’s always time to take a break. Here are some thoughts to help you savor the escape.

Laughter is an instant vacation. —Milton Berle

There is virtue in work and there is virtue in rest. Use both and overlook neither. —Alan Cohen

A little nonsense now and then, is cherished by the wisest men. —Roald Dahl

Your calm mind is the ultimate weapon against your challenges. So relax. —Bryant McGill
