Words of Wisdom

lennonYou’ll remember that one of my favourite quotes is this:-

Everything will be all right in the end.
If it’s not all right,
it’s not the end.

I’m quite fond of quotes. Here are some others that strike a chord with me.

  • We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.
  • War does not determine who is right — only who is left.
  • Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
  • I thought I wanted a career. Turns out I just want pay cheques.
  • You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive more than once.
  • Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.
  • Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.
  • A diplomat is someone who tells you to go to hell in such a way that you look forward to the trip.
  • Hospitality is making your guests feel at home even when you wish they were.
  • Always take life with a grain of salt. Plus a slice of lemon, and a shot of tequila.
  • When tempted to fight fire with fire, remember that the Fire Department usually uses water.
  • The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.
  • Never let a fool kiss you and never let a kiss fool you.

and finally

  • To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit ‘the target’.
