Things I've learned from Chinese Fortune Cookies

(that I'd like to pass on to Trevor, Devin, and maybe even Barack Obama if he's going to be our president).

When one cannot invent, one must at least improve.

One can never consent to crawl when one feels an impulse to soar.

You can't solve problems for those people who don't want their problem solved.

Yield and prevail.

If you blame someone else, you will never stop blaming.

If a problem has no solution, it may not be a problem, but a fact--not to be solved but to be coped with over time.
--Shimon Peres (and not from a fortune cookie, but certainly in that same vein.)

I'm going to throw away these fortunes now. I hope that's OK with everyone...
