More Grooks Part 6

Housewives who pray incessantly will get little done domestically. Unless their husband’s are men who don’t mind living in a pig pen. Psychologists now say a child is denied a happy life as soon as its father conceives it with a woman not his wife. In the pursuit of happiness – and this is bizarre – there is much unhappiness say those who are. Dying begins at conception a not very auspicious beginning if its purpose was to bring life not extinction. A bird is not the only creature that flies, adulterous men are known to do likewise. And whereas no bird ever flies bare the adulterer that doesn’t is rare. Some reach a point in their lives when friends are dropping off like flies. It’s not very complimemtary, I grant, though it’s a good analogy. Driving on the road of life many fail to look ahead, focusing on the rearview mirror to see only what’s behind instead – more often than not a fatal error. Religion wears many a hat, some are tall, others flat, some are square, still others round, almost any shape can be found. Even more amazing than that, there’s a head to fit every hat! When nearing the end of our days, it’s said most dread the few that still lie ahead. And looking back at those behind offer little comfort to our peace of mind for though many and fondly remembered the record of our sins are far more outnumbered. Repetition may be the mother of retention, but it’s a close relative of monotony. Why put off doing today what you can do tomorrow? Because knowing you, you’ll say the same tomorrow. It used to be that politics was in the power of honest hands, these days it’s at the bottom of deep dishonest pockets. It must be said with honesty few practice it honestly.

This is my favorite part " Repetition may be the mother of retention, but it’s a close relative of monotony."
