I got this idea "Tuesday Two" from another blogger who every Friday would post five soul searching questions/answers. I thought two would be easier to manage. So here it goes, the first post in the "Tuesday Two" series.
I hope you like the above photo of two yellow tulips.

Two quotes by Mark Twain:
1. "A human being has a natural desire to have more of a good thing than he needs." How appropriate in this state of consumerism!
2. "Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please." Need I say more about distortions (re-distribution of wealth, empty promises, foolish spending, deception and lies) that have been taking place?

Two "Easier said than done" from Life's Little Instruction Book by H. Jackson Brown, Jr. -
1. "Spend less time worrying who's right, and more time deciding what's right"
2. "Loosen up. Relax. Except for rare life-and-death matters, nothing is as important as it first seems."

Two questions from The Book of Questions by Gregory Stock, Ph. D. -
1. "If a crystal ball would tell you the truth about any one thing you wished to know concerning yourself, life, the future, or anything else, what would you want to know?"
2. "Ignoring all financial considerations, would you rather spend the next five years confined to the city of New York or to the environs of Morro Bay, a beautiful, isolated town on the California coast?" Could you guess, from reading my blog and the recent earthquake in northern Mexico, what my answer would be?
