Tuesday Tidbits #92


Welcome to the limited series, Tuesday Tidbits. A collection of quotes to provide inspiration, determination, and elevation. I hope you find something that brightens your day!


The man brave enough to climb the tallest tree is rewarded with the best view.

I do not fear death any more than turning the page of a book to see what happens next. I see my mortal life as but a chapter to a greater story.

It is easier to forgive a hungry man who steals a loaf of bread than it is to forgive a baker who steals one. One is driven by need and the other by greed.

I have lived long enough now to have seen our once heady dreams of outer space now warrant its own branch of military service. Oh, how we have grown.

Now I know why my grandmother’s cooking was so spectacular. Back then they didn’t have any low-sodium, low-fat, gluten-free, reduced cholesterol ingredients. It was chock full of all the bad stuff and was delicious.

In moments of extreme danger, fear can be an exceptional motivator. But it should never be the basis for a school of thought. Fear is what stands between the congress of mankind.

I wonder if my writing is truly a vehicle of self-expression or just an insidious need to have the last word.


Now get out there and write something!

    Several of those “tidbits” are spot on!

    As soon as I’m eating something delicious, I assume it must be loaded with fat—just like grandma’s cooking.

    I do not fear death either; I fear screwing up while on Earth.

    I like your take on bravery. It’s about having the courage to try new things.

  6. I am planning to fear death when I get a little older. I am too busy right now.

    I have my grandmother’s fried chicken recipe, and fortunately, I inherited her baking and cooking skills. Anyway, she marinated her chicken in buttermilk, rolled it in white flour and breadcrumbs, and then fried it in lard. So not healthy, but I tell ya, I’ve never had fried chicken as crispy and tender as her recipe!

    Great quotes Brad.

    “I do not fear death any more than turning the page of a book to see what happens next. I see my mortal life as but a chapter to a greater story.”

    Amen I couldn’t agree more. I too remember my mother’s wonderful baking everything wonderful and nothing fat free. These are great Brad.

    PS I am going to write you tomorrow afternoon. No need to respond immediately. Have a great evening my friend. Love ❤️ Jonikins
