Josephism

Josephism

This my list of Josephisms; many are mine; some are borrowed; some are quoted. Years ago, an MS sponsor asked me to sign bandannas for a team event. The team had 25 riders. The sponsor asked that I give each team member have a different quote with my signature. Over the years since,  here and there, I started collecting Josephism quotes and thoughts,
