An advisor to President Lincoln suggested a certain candidate for the Lincoln cabinet. But Lincoln refused, saying, “I don’t like the man’s face.”
“But, sir, he can’t be responsible for his face,” insisted the advisor.
“Every man over forty is responsible for his face,” replied Lincoln, and the subject was dropped. No matter what you think about your attitude, it shows on your face!
The other day I saw a bumper sticker that read, “Misery is an option.” I believe it! So does the daughter of a woman I heard about. The woman and her daughter went Christmas shopping together. The crowds were awful. The woman had to skip lunch because she was on a tight schedule. She became tired and hungry, and her feet were hurting. She was more than a little irritable.
As they left the last store, she asked her daughter. “Did you see the nasty look that salesman gave me?”
The daughter answered, “He didn’t give it to you, Mom. You had it when you went in.”
