    LOL I like the last one. Reminds me of "It pays to be paranoid", and " Humpty Dumpty was pushed!"

When I was young I thought my Mom's old saying "Beauty is skin deep, but ugly holds it own" was so funny. Then I went to a reunion and guess what? She was right.
    I would say when going to work "another day, another dollar so they say".
    You can lead a horse to water, but you can't teach a dog old tricks.

    Iíve only read to page 5 so these could be duplicates. Have got to read the rest! :)

    From my Dad: Youíre bored? Go clean your room! Or he'd find another chore for me to do.

    From my Grandmother: If youíre ears are ringing say the names of out loud or to yourself of the people you know. When it stops the last name you said is someone who was talking or thinking about you.

    From my Grandfather: If you canít say something nice donít say anything. He always added that there is something nice that you can find to say.

    Also my fifth grade teacher often said, If you do not use your head you will use your feet. Thank you Mrs. Wills!

    Here a few of my grandma's favorites- "Can't" lives in a mud-hole. If first you don't succeed, try try again. He/she would complain if hung with a gold rope! Haste makes waste. If you can't say something nice - say nothing at all. Thanks for sharing I have enjoyed them all and recognized many.

    Don't judge them till you've walked in their shoes!
    Buck up!
    Don't bite off more than you can chew!
    You'll turn into a pumpkin at midnight!
    Stupid is as stupid does!
    You're such a PITA!(pain in the ass)
    What goes around, comes around!
    You'll get your turn!
