Lines for the Fortune Cookies

You will shine on days of sun and rain.

When you put yourself in their shoes, remember no one size fits all.

Your next tweet will bring you fame.

The next stranger you hate, could have been your newest BFF.

You will be tall, dark and handsome to someone looking for a perfect stranger.

If you carry a load, be glad it isn’t daisies.

You will marry the love of your next life.

You will regret not being a better person.

You will be one of the wealthiest people in the world whose assets are compassion and knowledge.

Your next Diet Coke will taste like super-sweet chemicals aged in rusted metal.

You will take a long journey that will take you not one step from your door.

Your next YouTube video will go viral but be about a contagious virus.

You will never be a good person in person, if online, you’re mean.

A wise man once said, make not your stomach a graveyard for animals nor a bowl for fruit.

You will stand for justice for all or develop guilt.

When the sun goes down, you will see the stars.

Yesterday’s five spot is today’s 20 dollar bill.

Your patience will bear fruits that fill trees in a great orchard.

You will succumb to fatigue and nothing will make sense.

You will live another day.
