My Kinda Advice #1LinerWeds

Possibly my favorite book of all time is Jerome K. Jerome’s THREE MEN IN A BOAT (TO SAY NOTHING OF THE DOG). From it comes today’s one-liner. It’s a Victorian one-liner, so it’s long, with punctuation in.

Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need – a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends, worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing.

This post is part of Linda G. Hill’s weekly blog hop, One-Liner Wednesday. If you have a one-liner or just like them, follow the link.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
