Uncommon Wisdom

Uncommon Wisdom

Don’t criticize someone until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes. By then you’ll be a mile away and you’ll have their shoes.

Trust me, whatever hits the fan will not be distributed evenly.

When you’re up to your ass in alligators, it’s hard to remember that you set out to drain the swamp.

Doesn’t expecting the unexpected make the unexpected expected?

Always be nice to the lunch lady.

There are two things a woman should never do on a first date — 1) cook and 2) clean.

If someone calls you a donkey, laugh. If two people call you a donkey, keep laughing. If three people call you a donkey, get a saddle

Don’t post anything on the internet you wouldn’t be willing to have tattooed on your forehead.

If you keep calm while others around you are panicking, you might not understand the situation clearly.

Apologize when you make a mistake it will amaze some people and confound the rest.

What gems of wisdom do you have to share?

Thanks, Morgan

These are great!

I keep remembering--it's better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

Warren Bull said...

Thanks, Jacqueline.
Pauline, i think it might have been Mark Twain who said that.

Growing up in PA, I've been drawn to and taught Ben Franklin truisms. "Early to bed, early to rise..." Franklin was pragmatic in his sayings, and since he got us the money and had a good time doing so, I've never doubted his words. Ben's my hero.
