    [A SHORT, POINTED SENTENCE THAT EXPRESSES A WISE OR CLEVER OBSERVATION
    OR A GENERAL TRUTH ]



    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?

    (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.

    I love the tattoo one. I saw an 18 yr old girl with a tattoo of the sun around her navel (she was slender). It was cool looking but all I thought was, that is not going to be pretty when she's 35 and is 9 months pregnant!!

    Daughters all have tatoos. 3 daughters. Not for me. Such truth in these. Some hit too close to home especially the bucket seats.

    When I was in high school [graduated in 1970], many of the girls went and got a little rose at the top of one breast on their chest. I always thought to myself, that with time, and for sure getting older, I just didn't want to look everyday and see, by the time I was 80, that that little rose would be a long stemmed rose! :lol: :lol: I am 59 now, and already gravity has taken its tole on me in that respect. Nope, glad I didn't do that. Besides, my mother would have whooped up big time on me!!! :lol: :lol:
