What things are sure this side of paradise:
Death, taxes, and the counsel of the bore.
Though we outwit the tithe, make death our friend,
Bores we have with us even to the end.
How happy is the Optimist
To whom life shows its sunny side
His horse may lose, his ship may list,
But he always sees the funny side.
So open was his mind, so wide
To welcome winds from every side
That public weather took dominion,
Sweeping him bare of all opinion.
It's this no-nonsense side of women that is pleasant to deal with. They are the real sportsmen.
