Never argue with a pig; you'll just get dirty and the pig likes that!

It's not a matter of "right" or "wrong", but what is the WISE thing to do.

Use it or lose it.

Consider the source. Two wrongs don't make a right. If it isn't done isn't done. You will never regret buying quality. These sayings have helped me through some difficult situations and decisions.

Who ever said that life was fair?

before you speak T.H.I.N.K. T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
