    If you wrestle with a skunk you’ll probably win, but at the end of the day it ain’t hardly worth it.

    The optimist thinks his glass is half full.
    The pessimist thinks his glass is half empty.
    The engineer resents the wasted capacity and thinks the glass should be modified to contain the exact quantity of liquid available.

    I like it. I have never heard the last line but I know and have worked with engineers like that.

    Many a man has fallen in love by a light so dim he would not have chosen a suit by it.

    Being in love is an excellent reason to have an affair. It is no reason at all to get married.

    Also, one of my late father's sayings: "When poverty walks in the door, love flies out of the window."

    Two from my late dad:

    "Never wear a necktie that's cleverer than you are."

    And

    "The rain, it raineth on the just
    and also the unjust fella,
    but mostly on the just, because
    the unjust steals the just's umbrella."

    A Threefer from historian Daniel Boorstin:

    The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance - it is the illusion of knowledge.


    Education is learning what you didn't even know you didn't know.

    Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some hire public relations officers.
