    1. The nicest thing about the future is . . . that it always starts tomorrow.

    2. Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail.

    3. If you don't have a sense of humor, you probably don't have any sense at all.

    4. Seat belts are not as confining as wheelchairs.

    5. A good time to keep your mouth shut is when you're in deep water.

    6. How come it takes so little time for a child who is afraid of the dark to become a teenager who wants to stay out all night?

    7. Business conventions are important . . . because they demonstrate how many people a company can operate without.

    8. Why is it that at class reunions you feel younger than everyone else looks?

    9. Scratch a cat . . . and you will have a permanent job.

    10. No one has more driving ambition than the teenage boy who wants to buy a car.

    11. There are no new sins; the old ones just get more publicity.

    12. There are worse things than getting a call for a wrong number at 4 a.m. - like, it could be the right number.

    13. No one ever says "It's only a game" when their team is winning.

    14. I've reached the age where 'happy hour' is a nap.

    15. Be careful about reading the fine print. . . . There's no way you're going to like it.

    16. The trouble with bucket seats is that not everybody has the same size bucket.

    17. Do you realize that, in about 40 years, we'll have thousands of old ladies running around with tattoos in strange places? (And rap music will be the Golden Oldies!)


    18. Money can't buy happiness -- but somehow it's more comfortable to cry in a Cadillac than in a Yugo.



    19. After 60, if you don't wake up aching in every joint, you're probably dead.

    20. Always be yourself because the people that matter don't mind . . . . and the ones that mind don't matter.

    21. Life isn't tied with a bow . . . . . . . but it's still a gift.

    Thanks for the smile.
    Truth sometimes hurts, but it also has a wiser, lighter side.

    I think we should try and make up some new ones.

    Here's my try:

    If I think too hard about the stuff I cannot do, I never get anything done.

    Had to give myself this lecture this morning. Had been thinking about the blocks for my sampler quilt for nearly a week. Worrying about accurate cutting and matching angles. In the end I had to firmly tell myself, 'don't keep thinking, just do!' :lol:
