The Word of Wisdom really does have it right. Moderation in all things. Too little of a good thing can kill you; but, then again, so can too much as was pointed out in this article. I found the article interesting, but what I really enjoyed, was one of the comments in response to the article which stated, "Study: Life can lead to death." This actually reminded me of something I say some nights which is, "I'm going to bed so that I can wake up in the morning." Another of my favorite nighttime sayings is "Have sweet dreams, even if you don't remember them."
Growing up I had a quote/motto which was "Everyone is my hero". The reasoning behind this is that everyone has at least one great quality about them. Each person has something of value that they can teach us or that they are good at. So, we need to learn to seek out the good in people and learn from that and encourage the good and positive traits that people have. My sister's roommate once challenged me on my theory. She asked me "What about Satan?" Well, for one, Satan isn't actually a person. For two, well, I forgot what else I told her.
So, well, I don't really know what the point of anything I just wrote is. Just thought I'd share random, (very) loosely related thoughts.
