- Just because someone is shinier than you doesn’t make them better.
- Hang around those who are different—you never know who you’ll meet.
- If you fall, you might break.
- Sometimes it’s good to be a shiny single strand, other times it’s good to be all clumped together. Both have their time and place.
- Hide yourself away every so often so you remain captivating and appreciated.
- Even though sometimes you’re left on a shelf, know that your time will come again.
- Lights that blink too fast can give a mighty headache. Slow down!
- If you’re all tangled up you’re of no use to anyone.
- It’s bad enough there was no room at the inn. Don’t make it worse by excluding from the creche as well. Who said there couldn’t be parrots, or giraffes, or even a bachelor uncle or two?
- There are worse things you can do than hang out on your front porch wearing a red bow.
- If you have to be up on your roof in the snow and ice, at least make sure you’re lit.
