Witty Words of Wisdom

Some words of wisdom from the pages of the Farmers’ Almanac:

Among the things that money can’t buy are what it used to.

Live today to the fullest. Remember it is the first day of the rest of your life!

Happiness is a stopping place between too much and too little.

The real secret of happiness is not what you give or what you receive it’s what you share.

Contentment makes poor people rich; discontent makes rich people poor.

To improve your health, try smiling.

Happiness is an inside job.

You can’t turn back the clock but you can wind it up again.

Don’t borrow trouble. Be patient and you’ll have some of your own.

If you haven’t all the things you want, be grateful for the things you don’t have that you wouldn’t want.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
