1. If you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

2. If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.

3. Some days you're the bug; some days you're the windscreen.

4. Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.

5. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

OK, its my turn to be the windscreen now...

I live my life according to:

01 - When we are born we are naked, wet, hungry, and we get smacked on our arse...

From there on in, life gets worse.

02 - Good judgment comes from bad experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

03 - There are two theories about how to win an argument with a woman...

Neither one works.

04 - Before you judge someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.

That way, when you judge them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

05 - Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

...and like boll weavil, I'd like to be the windscreen now. At least for a while.

Very wise thoughts indeed.

Here are a couple of sayings. The first one probably emanates from up here in Scotland.

If at first you don't succeed, use the boot and dent the heid.

I think the second is one of mine.

Ours is not to reason why, ours is but to scream and cry.

BOLL WEAVIL - Good luck... :-)

GOOD DOG & LisaH - Thanks for your contributions. I especially like GD's 01 & 02 and LisaH's second offering --- ain't they the truth?

Of course, as a gay man, I couldn't possibly comment on GD's 03. Mind you, it is said that there are only two ways to convince a man that his way isn't right --- and neither of those work either!

What a miserable lot of comments!

How about

1. Most people in the world are good

2.Positive thinking can turn round negative circumstances

3."Do as you would be done by" works better than "be done by as you did" [with acknowledgements to Charles Kingsley]

4.If you refuse to take charge of your life and whatever it deals you, you have only yourself to blame.

5.Bitterness and grudge holding only hurt the person who feels them.

See, I am a pious smug person after all, oh dear!
