My Favorite Sayings

A closed mouth gathers no foot.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.

“Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.” - Mark Twain

Buy a man a fish, and he'll eat for a day.
Teach a man to fish, and he'll eat for a lifetime.

Needing someone is like needing a parachute.
If he isn't there the first time you need him,
chances are you won't be needing him again.

Age doesn't always bring wisdom.
Sometimes age comes alone.

The rising tide lifts all boats.

Accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue.

The best things in life aren't things.

Talk is cheap because supply exceeds demand.

"That which is hateful unto you do not do to your neighbor. This is the whole of the Torah. The rest is commentary." - Hillel

The real art of conversation is not only to say
the right thing at the right time,
but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing
at the tempting moment.

Some folks are so busy falling for everything that they don't stand up for anything.

Don't try to be God.  You're not qualified, and the job's already taken.

“We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it - and stop there; lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove-lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove-lid again - and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore.” - Mark Twain

Check out CREATIVE QUOTATIONS.COM - another cool site

Also visit  THE QUOTATIONS PAGE.  I particularly like the section on Mark Twain.
Without a doubt, one of the 20th Century's most colorful figures is Yogi Berra.  And when it came to the English language, Mr. Berra was a great baseball player!  CLICK HERE to visit his official site, read some Yogi-isms, and maybe order some autographed memoribilia!
Another notorious English major was Samuel Goldwyn, the "G" in MGM!  His misuse of the language was legendary (and not always accidental!).  CLICK HERE for some Goldwynisms!
