House rules, part 4

I've previously posted various fortune-cookie fortunes that I find entertaining when you add ". . . in bed" to the end:

While cleaning my room this past week, I came across a bunch more than I've collected in recent years. (For two-sentence fortunes, usually insert "in bed" at the end of the first sentence.)

  • Care and attention to the key relationships in your life will pay off.
  • Concentration leads to success.
  • Contentment is just around the corner for you.
  • Do something unusual tomorrow.
  • Don't be so critical and overly concerned about details.
  • Flowers would brighten the day of your close friend tomorrow.
  • A friend or partner will be giving you needed information. Listen!
  • Friends long absent are coming back to you.
  • If a true sense of value is to be yours it must come through service.
  • Investigate new possibilities with friends. Now is the time!
  • It's kind of fun to do the impossible.
  • Learn to listen, not hear.
  • No obstacles will stand in the way of your success this month.
  • Now is the time to call loved ones at a distance. Share your news.
  • The philosophy of one century is the common sense of the next.
  • Simplicity of character is the natural result of profound thought.
  • Time is what keeps things from happening all at once.
  • Try something new and different. You will like the results.
  • The world is always ready to receive talent with open arms.
  • You are thorough and very organized.
  • You will be happily surprised by a long time friend.
  • You will be selected for a promotion because of your accomplishments.
  • You will be showered with good luck before your next birthday. (A separate fortunate was less specific about time: it just said "You will be showered with good luck.")
  • You will enjoy razor-sharp spiritual vision today.
  • You will stumble into the happiness of your life.
  • Your hard work is about to pay off.

And my favorite from this batch:

Put the data you have uncovered to beneficial use.

(I've now collected all the fortunes from all the abovelinked pages, as well as these new ones, in a new page: Fortunes collection.)
