Blackboard Wisdom at a Gas  Station 

Gauteng is in South Africa .  
A  filling station has  become quite a landmark in Gauteng with its daily  
#PetrolPumpWisdom,  which are uplifting  quotes written on a chalkboard. 
Some motorists say they deliberately  travel this route just to read the quote 
which brightens their day.  Here’s a selection:








The lady behind this wonderful  initiative at Hutton Hyde Park is Alison 
She told SAPeople: “We inherited  the board from the previous owner, Dick

“Different things appeal to  different people… 


“The boards were spotted by a  motivational speaker from the UK, 
Geoff Ramm, when he was driving by  one day and he was so taken 
by them he included a piece about  them in his book! 


“The boards have appeared many  times in newspapers and magazines 
and been spoken about on radio  stations all over the world. 9GAG has 
re-tweeted them a few times too!”  Bob 95 FM in the USA recently posted 
Alison’s “Rest in Peace” quote  which has now been shared over a quarter 
of a million times around the  world! 

Those who would disrespect our  flag have never been handed a folded one. 

"A veteran is someone who at one  point in their life, wrote a blank check 
payable to The United States of  America for any amount, up to and 
including their life." 

"The further a society drifts  from truth, the more it will hate those who 
speak  it."      George  Orwell  

Ignorance can be fixed, Stupid is  FOREVER!  "Age is a case of mind over 
matter. If you don't mind, it  don't matter."
