Jack’s Winning Words 1/11/17
“You can only wear one pair of pants at a time.” (Charles F. Feeney) C.F. Feeney grew up during the Great Depression and learned the difference between a want and a need. He doesn’t own a car. He rents an apartment. He was a billionaire, but has given away most of his fortune. He wants to die “broke.” Warren Buffett calls him, “My hero!” When TV ads try to tell us that a want is a need, click on, MUTE! Learn from Chuck…Every want is not a need! ;-) Jack
FROM TRIHARDER: You can only dance at one wedding at a time. Mine: you can't ride two horses with one tuchas.====JACK: I'll bet there's a Yiddish term for just about everything.
FROM TARMART REV: I "needed" to be reminded of that this morning!!====JACK: Have you heard the story of Kagawa (Google him), the Japanese Christian? He could never keep a shirt on his back, because he always seemed to find someone who needed it more than he did.
FROM TL IN MICHIGAN: So good today! Thank you!====JACK: I suppose you've heard the saying: "There are no pockets in a shroud."
FROM ST PAUL IN MESA: good words today, Jack. thanks! separating our needs from our greeds is a very important lesson to learn in life.====JACK: Pastors can be subject to avarice, too.
FROM CHESTER THE GOOD: Sounds to me like he has a great guilt complex.====JACK: If that's the case, more people need a complex like that...because most of us seem to have a non-guilt complex when it comes to the inequality of wealth.
FROM OUTHOUSE JUDY: Boy, that's the truth. We actually have very few needs but the wants are long lists!!!====JACK: Jesus said, "Where your heart is, there is your treasure."
