To keep your marriage brimming, With love in the loving cup, Whenever you're wrong, admit it; Whenever you're right, shut up. -Ogden Nash, poet (1902-1971)
Do you know the art of a good apology? Among other things, it’s saying you’re sorry without adding a “but” or “because” clause that actually throws blame on your partner. And how about shutting up, as Nash suggests, when you’re right? I love Nash’s pithy poems – not only because many of them are funny, but because they are often spot on.
The Panther The panther is like a leopard, Except it hasn't been peppered. Should you behold a panther crouch, Prepare to say Ouch. Better yet, if called by a panther, Don't anther.
The kids and I used to crack up every time we read this.
