Default Adages, advice,clever sayings

Here are 3 recent ones new to me to start ...


Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

I intend to live forever - so far, so good.

I always take life with a grain of salt, ...plus a slice of lemon, ...and a shot of tequila

Life is 10% what happened to you, 90% how you react to it.

Well Mr Daddy - maybe we have more in common than I initially thought. That was the same adage that got my attention too.

The minimum wouldn't be the minimum if it wasn't enough.

Most of life's ills are self inflicted.

If you don't know what you are doing, don't do it.

Do not go to or argue with an idiot in the bilge. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
