A couple things I read recently that I liked:
“In America, 100 years is old. In Europe, 100 miles is far.”
“The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second best time is today.”
When I was a little kid I played a game whenever I opened a new jar of peanut butter. I’d break the seal with a butter knife, but tried to not break the smooth surface of the peanut butter below. Eventually Miriah showed me that you could use the tabs on the side of the seal to open it without touching the underlying peanut butter at all. That kind of ruined it for me.
