Favorite Quotes

Do you guys have any good, funny, life changing/ inspiring quotes that you remember easily? I mean, like "Don't eat yellow snow", "Don't kick a cow pie on a warm day", or "Drink upstream from the herd". One of my personal favorites is "I just hate stupid people"-- Bill Engvall.

I'm not sure where I heard this one, but another top 5 one for me is "I'm a very responsible guy, whenever anything goes wrong, I'm responsible." I use that one on average of twice per day. I need some newer, better quotes.



In a while, Chet.

"Funny thing about the weather, everybody talks about it but nobody does anything about it" - Mark Twain

"It's hard to make things fool-proof because fools are so ingenious." - Cant remember who...

"If you took all the lawyers in the world and laid them end to end around the equator, we'd all be better off" - Kent Hoven

"You can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time" - Abraham Lincoln

"The only thing he wouldn't steal is a red hot stove" - Old Abe again

"Listen buddy, I was in diapers before you were born!" - Me

"Stick head in lawn mower, end in stew." - Chinese movie detective Charlie Chan

"It is better to be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt" - Unknown... to me at least

The world is moving so fast these days that the man who says it can't be done is generally interrupted by someone doing it.
Harry Emerson Fosdick

Experience is what you get when you don't get what you want.

Even if you are on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Will Rodgers

The pursuit of perfection is frustrating and a waste of time because nothing is ever perfect.
The pursuit of excellence is commendable and worth while.
Therefore strive for excellence, not perfection
Alan Kulwicki

Murphy has most of my favorites...

"A shortcut is the longest distance between two points".
"The chances of a piece of buttered toast landing butter side down is directly proportional to the cost of the carpet".

My favorite is simply: "If you don't have time to do it right the first time, then how are you going to have time to do it again?"

Words to live by...
