PM Quote of the Day — Chinese Fortune Cookie

The early bird may get the worm,
but it’s the second mouse that gets the cheese.

I was contemplating using the Nathan Bedford Forrest quote “Get there first with the most” — often rendered as “get there firstest with the mostest” — when my wife opened her fortune cookie this evening.  

Reading that cookie’s fortune — the saying above — was a timely reminder that fortune may often favor the bold, but rarely the reckless.
