Vices and virtues

January 31, 2014

no vices few virtues

Abe Lincoln was right: You gotta have a few vices.  I mean, seriously.

I’m not suggesting you run off with the neighbor, or take up smoking or any other vice that’s not good for you or someone else.

I’m saying that prigs are a bore.

A full life requires a little spice.

Some of us have more than others, though, and I don’t think that’s such a bad thing.

Any thoughts on this?

  1. I’ve noticed that those with vices are much more tolerant individuals.

    I honestly don’t think you can make generalizations. Plus some people might consider something a vice that other may not. I’m just saying, its an individual thing and has a lot of dimensions. If you call vices bad habits- we all have them.

    Heehee! Gimme some spice!!! 😉

  4. Billy Joel said he’d rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints.

  5. I love a little ‘spice’ in my mix- just not so much that my life is on fire.

    Same old, same old gets very old. And boring. Absolutely.
