642 Things to Write About Challenge: Week 45

Written By: Colleen - Nov• 09•13

Had fun searching the Internet for fun fortune cookie sayings this week.  I went with both funny ones and actual inspirational ones.  Feel free to add some of your favorites in the comments section below.  I would love to hear ’em.  Working on another long post for next week’s topic already…

“Write ten sayings for fortune cookies.”


  1. “At times it is better to know when to exit than enter.”
  2. “Good clothes open many doors.  Go shopping.”
  3. “A human being is a deciding being.”
  4. “All progress occurs because people dare to be different.”
  5. “Nothing shows a man’s character more than what he laughs at.”
  6. “Ignore previous fortunes.”
  7. “Don’t worry about things in the past, there is nothing you can do about them now. Don’t worry about things that are happening now, make the best of a bad situation. Don’t worry about things in the future, they may never happen.”
  8. “Life does not get better by chance. It gets better by change.”
  9. “The road to riches is paved with gold diggers.”
  10. “People who are late are often happier than those who have to wait for them.”

    As a corollary to your topic, I’d like to hear people’s favorite suffixes that they append on to any given fortune cookie.

    “…in bed” is one of the ones I hear the most, although my wife would always append “… with Ted Kennedy” for some reason to a fortune cookie.

    (To be clear, she never appended “… in bed with Ted Kennedy” to a fortune, thankfully.)

    Great topic as always, Colleen.

      The “in bed” one is the only one I can really think of, lol, but adding “Ted Kennedy” to it is pretty funny too!

    I like #6 the best. Haha 🙂 I don’t have any to add because I have never eaten a fortune cookie before. Crazy, right?!

      You’ve never had a fortune cookie before?!?! They’re not the most amazing things ever, but it’s definitely something you gotta try out just once!
