While Claudia was here this weekend we tried out a new type of fortune cookie: Taste of Thai Toasted Coconut Fortune Cookies. Best of all they are gluten-free! Very tasty cookies but the nutritional value was a little on the heavy side.

Regular fortune cookies:

Taste of Thai cookies:

But the fortunes weren't your typical phrases - these were more like parables, which was rather nice.

Through violence you may solve one problem but sow the seeds for many others.

Neither fire nor wind, birth, nor death can erase our good deeds.

Conquer the angry man by love. Conquer the illnatured man by goodness. Conquer the miser with generosity. Conquer the liar with truth.

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

Pay no attention to the faults, things done or undone by others. Consider only what by oneself is done or left undone.

Holding on to anger is like grasping hot coal, you are the one getting burned.

Sometimes one impresses by saying something and sometimes one creates as significant an impression by remaining silent.

We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. What we think we become.

And in the "Holmberg" fashion you have to end each of the futunes with "…in bed"!
