    If you avoid drinking, smoking and carousing with women, you don't actually live longer --- it just seems longer.


    A little bit of excruciating pain never hurt anybody.


    I believe it was Lady Astor who said of Winston Churchill "If I were married to him I would poison him." His reply was "If I were married to her, I would take the poison".

    With credit to the OP of this topic. BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

    Don't ask what the world needs.
    Ask....What makes YOU come alive ?
    DO THAT !
    What the world needs is people who have come alive.




    What ever you are.
    Be a good one.

    Keep the clean side up and the dirty side down.

    No one gets out of this life alive.

    I spent most of my life and money on women and drinking...the rest I just wasted.

    A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play,
    his mind and his body,
    his education and his recreation.
    He hardly knows which is which.
    He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing
    and leaves others to determine if he is working or playing.
    To himself he always seems to be doing both.

    I always heard Jesus said "anything is ok in moderation". (probably not true)

    Troubles encountered as a child, build character.

    Troubles encountered as an adult...reveal it.

    I don't know if it's authentic or not but I just picked this one up attributed to our Defense Secretary Jim "Mad Dog" Mattis :

    "Always carry a knife. You don't know when there's cheesecake or you need to stab someone in the throat."

    He has some more verified actual quotes that are more colorful but this one was new to me. (You gotta love old Semper Fi being on our side.)

    I prefer Colts myself...but the point is the same. Also...I believe in "Irving's Law...Murphy was an optimist."
