Save yourself some grief

A friend wrote this quote on a bit of paper and stuck it on her kitchen wall so her three sons could muse on it over their breakfast cereal:

'He who has so little knowledge of human nature as to seek happiness by changing anything but his own disposition, will waste his life in fruitless efforts, and multiply the grief which he purposes to remove.'

Dr Samuel Johnson

Something like, "Remember to put the toilet seat down" would be more appropriate in OUR house!!
