Signs of the times

Way back when, I was pretty deeply immersed in calligraphy. 
If you are going to spend a lot of time and effort writing something beautifully, it was best to have the message be eloquent, important and brief.
So I started collecting quotations, adages and proverbs.  And whole books of quotes, proverbs and advice.
Consequently, when I saw these primitive signs at Goudreault's farm, they went into the collection.
 I'm not sure money is as close to being the root of evil as is FEAR.  Fear of poverty? Fear of powerlessness? Fear of pain?  If you confronted your fears, or embraced them, or trusted that they were valuable, how would you be different?
 And if you DO manage to fear less, what will you replace it with?  Hope, breathing and love seem like good things.
Why don't we tell our children this?  Why do we insist on telling them that every @#$% thing will go on their "permanent" (and mythical) record?
