Advice from the Past

As part of celebrating Safety Harbor’s Centennial, the museum’s staff has been researching various aspects of our town’s history. One of the things that we have come across so far has been snippets of advice from the past straight out of the Safety Harbor Herald.

So, in honor of remembering our history, we present to you some words to live by according the Safety Harbor of yesterday!

For those of you ready to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, keep in mind that…

“Nature made the only moonshine fit to use.”

For those of you who may be planning adventures or maybe just tend to get into a little mischief, remember that…

“Money will buy a lot of things, but it can’t buy spare parts for your body that are as good as the original ones.”

…and strangely along the same lines…

“Compensation can never take the place of a perfectly good arm.”

But most importantly, remember not to take yourself too seriously because…

“All of us are fools – more or less, but some of us insist on proving it!”

This Advice from the Past was brought to you by the February 21st, 1930 edition of the Safety Harbor Herald.

Let us know what you think!
