Goose, I know we have had our issues in the past, but some of these proverbs you have quoted here are amazing. If you model your life around some of these sentiments, then I truly have much to learn from you!

Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.

Fantastic!

That's up there with "Don't go away mad.  Just go away."

Ha ha!  That reminds me of "Some people are like Slinkies.  They're not good for much, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs."

Also reminds me of the other classic Oscar Wilde insult:

“He has no enemies, but is intensely disliked by his friends.”

-- My mother.  (Yes, SHE said it first.....)

And the answer, as always, is "depends on the bridge."

Or, "depends on whether the bodies piled at the bottom would be enough of a cushion to mitigate the effects of impact"

:yes:   If nothing else...so that we remember the temporary nature of sadness, and our ability to influence it...if not eliminate it.

The fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright brothers......but they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.

I am nothing special, of this I am sure.

I am a common man with common thoughts and I've led a common life.

There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough." (Nicholas Sparks)
