Motivational Fortune Cookies!
Motivational Fortune Cookies are a great way to end a meal. They provide a low calorie desert, a mystery, and some great food for thought!
A fortune cookie is a crisp cookie usually made from flour, sugar, vanilla, and oil with a "fortune" wrapped inside. A "fortune" is a piece of paper with words of faux wisdom or a vague prophecy. The message inside may also include a Chinese phrase with translation or a list of lucky numbers used by some as lottery numbers, some of which have become actual winner numbers.
Fortune cookies are often served as a dessert in Chinese restaurants in the United States and some other countries, but are absent in China. The exact provenance of fortune cookies is unclear, though various immigrant groups in California claim to have popularized them in the early 20th century, basing their recipe on a traditional Japanese cracker. Fortune cookies have been summarized as being "introduced by the Japanese, popularized by the Chinese, but ultimately they are consumed by Americans." - from Wikipedia
Life is the classroom…Love is the lesson
Luck always favors the prepared mind.
Ideas are like children; there are none so wonderful as your own.
It takes more than good memory to have good memories.
Courage is the mastery of fear - not the absence of fear.
Constant grinding can turn an iron rod into a needle.
You may lack ambition, but not the ability to succeed.
Smile! A frown may turn others away.
Versatility is one of your outstanding traits.
Plan for many pleasures ahead.
The joyfulness of a person prolongeth their days.
Your careful nature will bring you financial success.
Your everlasting patience will be rewarded sooner or later.
The home is the chief school of human virtues.
Make two grins grow where there was only a grouch before.
Unnecessary possessions are unnecessary burdens.
Failure is the mother of success.
