Very few people take the predictions in a fortune cookie seriously. We all know they can’t predict the future. Who knows who writes them in the first place? Sometimes, however, you can find good advice in them. Try a few of these:

“No plan will work if you don’t.”

“While some dream of a bright future, others are awake making it.”

“Pushing your luck does not count as exercise.”

“He who knows enough is enough will always have enough.”

“Don’t be pushed by your problems. Be led by your dreams.”

“You only live once; but if you do it right, once is enough.”
