Quoting Yourself

I was thinking most of my life that quoting yourself was the height of arrogance. But last night a young male nurse started a conversation with me and it turned to my writing. And I found myself actually thinking about what quote I would want to be remembered for. The one on my blogsite is one.

But the other one is: Quite literally, the beginning of wisdom is not giving a damn.

Think about that.

(NOTE: The true beginning of wisdom is the fear (respect) of God.  And when you strip everything from  all of your expectations - in effect, not caring - you see things as they actually are. As, we would imagine, God sees them. However, He sees things with the eyes of righteousness, not the minimal longings of men.)
