Words to live by....

Recommended Posts

I'll start...feel free to chime in.

Life is a terminal disease...live every day to the fullest.

If you can't change it don't worry about it. Life is too short.

Always say what you mean and mean what you say.

If you can't bite then don't bark.

Yoga pants are a gift from God.

The best advice my Daddy ever gave me:

Never pass up a good opportunity to shut up.  ;)

People may think you are an idiot, but there is no reason to open your mouth and prove it.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”

Always be prepared!

A few others that rattle around in my head:

Friendly fire...isn't. 

The most dangerous men don't have to tell you they are dangerous.

You can't outdraw a drawn gun.

Newer does not always equal better.

"What is past is past. never go back. Not for excuses. Not for justification, not for happiness. You are what you are, the world is what it is."

“A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received."

"Uniform, discipline, attitude."

That last one won't show up on Google as it was advice from my father as I left home to go into the army.  He said if I had those three things in order I'd be good to go in the service.  I've kept it going well past my discharge as it's sage advice on life itself.

If you don't have time to do it right when will you have the time to do it over?

Learn from other peoples mistakes cause you don't have time to make them all yourself.

When I was six my father was attacked in our neighbors kitchen by her much larger ex-husband.  My father reached for anything he could get his hands on and found a 1 liter returnable glass Coke bottle.  I can still see that guy stumbling out of that kitchen with blood everywhere.

Later my father sat me down to talk about it, this is all I remember of what he said...

”Son, there’s no such thing as a fair fight.”

 The only person you can change is the one starring back at you in the mirror!

 Every one puts their pants on one leg at a time!

 Handy as a hand with a thumb on it!

 If you are not going to a fight to win then don't

Never use a saw when sandpaper will suffice.

Me, today, when I thought I screwed up a door.

Most of these are pretty good, but I personally have never tried on a pair of yoga pants.

Me either, and the world is a better place because of that ...

God grant me coffee to change the things I can, whisky to accept the things I can't, and wisdom to know the difference. 

 

Experience is what you get right after you need it.

Beautiful...intelligent....sane. In most cases you only get two out of three for a mate.

As you pass middle age you'll realize it's better to feel good than look good.

You name is not your own. It belongs to your forefathers and children. Never betray it.
