An email I received today had both these passages in it. I’ve added boldface.
Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile.
Send to all the people you love and don’t want to lose in 2007, even me….
If you get 3 back, you are a great friend
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we’re here we should dance….
And at the bottom of the email was this:

My guess is the employer who wants this boilerplate at the bottom of their email also disallows chain emails. heh.
