Aphorism...

A brief saying embodying a moral, a concise statement of a principle or precept given in pointed words.
Ernest Hemingway was bet $10 that he couldn't sum up his life in six words. He won that bet when he wrote, "For sale, baby shoes, never worn."

4. Tag five more blogs with links
5.Remember to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!

2) Lone-dddfavoritter
3) Sandra-Babycakes Designs
4) Rebecca-MillerCampbellDesigns
5) Deb-The Laughing Doll
What, I wonder, will they choose for their Aphorism?

Blessing and Have a Beautiful Easter,Flora
