    Not going to read all these, so sorry if this is a repeat:

    You, sir, have never order medium rare and gotten well done. At least that's what I assume we're discussing.

    You can't keep a bird from landing on your head, but you can keep it from building a nest.

    -from a discussion I had with my old pastor regarding temptation

    Mark Knopfler sang essentially that line in the Dire Straits song "Solid Rock" from the "Making Movies" album.

    "You can't lose what you never had."

    Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart co-opted the lyric somewhat and morphed it into "you can't lose a friend you never had" in their hit song "I Wonder What She's Doing Tonight."

    Shakespeare's "every dog has his day" line from Hamlet is worked into the lyrics of the song "Misfits" by the KinKs.

    Its far from your heart...you're not going to die to day.

    When the tale/tail gets cut off...it won't be long now.

    I plead a thousand pardons, it will never happen again...until the next time.

    When faced with a bad plan...institute it to its fullest.

    I think The Small Faces pretty well summed it up:-

    "Life is just a bowl of All-Bran
    You wake up every morning and it's there
    So live as only you can
    It's all about enjoy it 'cause ever since you saw it
    There ain't no one can take it away."

    Or for the full version of their enlightened philosophy ...
