Look around your life, you'll find enough

One of the reasons I love spending time in Adelaide is the bus tickets.

They have a series of wise sayings handily printed on the back.

Angry at the guy sitting next to you with his headphones turned up so loud YOUR ears are ringing? Don't get mad, just think:

Pleasant thoughts make pleasant lives.

Confused about where you need to get off the bus, or even if you're on the right bus? It's okay!

To know one's ignorance is a part of knowledge.

Why are you on this bus, anyway? Are you just wandering the town aimlessly? Think about this then:

Purpose is what gives life meaning.

Also,

Making the most of today is the best preparation for tomorrow.

This afternoon I cooked dinner before I went out for the evening, so that it would be waiting for me when I got home. Mmm, that was good. And there are leftovers for tomorrow too.

Thank for all the sterling advice, Adelaide Metro!

I LOVE how you say, "Think about THIS then:....

Purpose is what gives life meaning."

What a cool idea - I wonder if they have a little person locked up in the nether regions of the bus station offices, coming up with these little ever-so-slightly trite sayings ;)
