No matter how I struggle and strive, I'll never get out of this world alive.
Never date a woman with bad knees.
Sh*t happens. Sometimes it happens to me.
My grandmother had this in her kitchen, and I quote it often at work:
"The hurrier I go, the behinder I get"
I believe what I think I know.
Maybe it is a letter g: or they ran out of paint on the 8
Sometimes everyone is wrong and there is no right answer. A lot of things can look intentional when they are not
Hence Napoleon: Never attribute to conspiracy that which can be explained by incompetence
The more you know, the more you know you don't know. So if you think you know, you almost surely don't, and if you think you don't, you might.
The best advice my Dad ever gave to me was that it's OK to break rules, but only if you've thought about the possible consequences and are prepared to deal with them. He'd remind me of that anytime I'd broken a rule / law and was dealing with the consequences. I passed it on many times to my daughters (usually after they broke rules and were dealing with the consequences) and now that they're adults they tell me it's the best advice I ever gave them. If they have kids, I think they'll pass that one on too...
And one of my favorites comes from Mark Knopfler - "two men think they're Jesus, one of them must be wrong"...
never kick a skunk
This reminds me of Ford saying 'whether you think you can do something or not, you're probably right'
F**k the dumb s**t
No good deed goes unpunished
Never take a sleeping pill and a laxative at the same time.
On a more serious note, I've always liked Mark Twain's: "Never argue with a fool; onlookers may not be able to tell the difference."
Conan, what is best in life?
To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women!
Maybe I missed it on here... but the one from my youth I remember most was my dad always told me to "measure twice cut once" and "don't let your alligator mouth overload your hummingbird a$$" he had others, lots of 'em. But those I heard frequently.
My Grandmother always quoted Proverbs 3 as well, "be not wise in your own eyes, fear the Lord and depart from evil."
In retrospect I wonder if they were giving me instruction or just pointing out character flaws...
Never take nor give advice.
That's my advice.
what is b***?
My own personal: "Say what you mean and mean what you say".
Two that I always remember that are from non-philosophical sources:
"Some give up and move on and some give up and stay" - Hall and Oats
"Wanting something can be better than actually having it" - Mr Spock - from that time he "killed" Kirk over his betrothed Vulcan bride....
I live by (not literally!) this gem of a line from 'True Romance':
''It's better to have a gun and not need it than to need a gun and not have one'.
ie; be prepared for everything as much as humanly possible.
Never lend: Vinyl LPs or music gear.
There is no problem that the mind of man can set that the mind of man can't solve. (With the exception of time travel, I'd add).
- If more people would listen to themselves speak, a lot less would be said.
- Sometimes you gotta hit people where it hurts the most...in their wallets.
Advice from my dad:
"Three of the hardest things to do is, climb a fence leaning towards you, kiss a girl leaning away from you, and helping someone that doesn't want your help."
How can you be beside yourself...............when you're standing right there?
