Sometimes inspiration for a blog comes from the pages of the Almanac. Here are a few words of wisdom for the weekend – enjoy.

  • People who fight fire with fire usually end up with ashes.
  • Leisure is a fine companion, but boredom is its brother.
  • Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb. That’s where the fruit is.
  • Time is like money; the less of it there is to spare, the further we make it go.
  • You can give without loving, but you can’t love without giving.
  • Little things are like weeds — the longer you neglect them, the larger they will grow.
  • Nothing is enough for the person to whom enough is too little.
  • The best way to predict the future is to help create it.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
