day no. 14,066: sure as cuss

Ecclesiastes 7:21-22
Do not take to heart all the things that people say, lest you hear your servant cursing you. Your heart knows that many times you yourself have cursed others.
Everyone is a caricature to someone.

day no. 14,064: knowing what day it is

Ecclesiastes 7:14
In the day of prosperity be joyful, and in the day of adversity consider: God has made the one as well as the other, so that man may not find out anything that will be after him.
Enjoy the good you get as goodness received and endure the bad you meet with goodness believed.

day no. 14,063: quick wick

Ecclesiastes 7:9
Be not quick in your spirit to become angry,
for anger lodges in the heart of fools.
If you train your heart to spring from the starting blocks at the sound of a gun, you will begin hearing blasts where there were none.

day no. 14,062: cashing checks

Ecclesiastes 7:8
Better is the end of a thing than its beginning,
and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
A person is not proved faithful by what they promise to do. Any proud fool can promise to do something… later.

day no. 14,061: snap, crackle and pop

Ecclesiastes 7:5-6
It is better for a man to hear the rebuke of the wise
than to hear the song of fools.
For as the crackling of thorns under a pot,
so is the laughter of the fools;
this also is vanity.
Pop music crackles as it cackles. It makes you want to snuggle up and sleep as your entire life burns down.
