Choose an aphorism for your life
Jun 6, 2012 - By Carolyn B. Tyler
An Internet friend sent me some aphorisms this week that are worth sharing here:
- The nicest thing about the future is that it always starts tomorrow.
- Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail.
- If you don't have a sense of humor, you probably don't have any sense at all.
- Seat belts are not as confining as wheelchairs.
- A good time to keep your mouth shut is when you're in deep water.
- How come it takes so little time for a child who is afraid of the dark to become a teenager who wants to stay out all night?
- Business conventions are important because they demonstrate how many people a company can operate without.
- Why is it that at class reunions you feel younger than everyone else looks?
- Scratch a cat behind the ears, and you will have a permanent job.
- No one has more driving ambition than the teenage boy who wants to buy a car.
- There are no new sins; the old ones just get more publicity.
- There are worse things than getting a call for a wrong number at 4 a.m. Like, it could be the right number.
- No one ever says "It's only a game" when their team is winning.
- I've reached the age where "happy hour" is a nap.
- Be careful about reading the fine print, there's no way you're going to like it.
- The trouble with bucket seats is that not everybody has the same size bucket.
- Do you realize that, in about 40 years, we'll have millions of old ladies running around with tattoos? (And rap music will be the golden oldies!)
- Money can't buy happiness but somehow it's more comfortable to cry in a Cadillac than in a Yugo.
- Always be yourself, because the people that matter don't mind and the ones that mind don't matter.
