Pearls of Wisdom

So I'm thinking we could start a new thread with our favorite "pearls of wisdom".

Here is one of mine................for the ladies.......

"Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the ground each morning the devil says,
"OH CRAP, SHE'S UP"!

"Thinking of"? I think you just did.

Here is mine: For the Gentlemen

Never marry the kind of woman who when her feet hit the ground each morning the devil says, "OH CRAP, SHE'S UP!"

Wish I had heeded that pearl of wisdom when I was younger.

HA! I like those. One of my favorites is especially apropos for forums:

I ka 'olelo no ke ola, i ka 'olelo no ka make.

(missing diacritical marks)

basically, translates to say that in words there is life and in words there is death. I think it's something good to remember, especially in a place where words (and emoticons!) are all we have to convey our message.

Another favorite of mine comes from Dave Barry:

A perfect parent is a person with excellent child-rearing theories and no actual children.

I have used both those "pearls of wisdom" as signatures on message boards over the years (along with "I make milk, what's your superpower" )

No, no, no. You misquoted me. It's:

You could try caramel with cheese (no, really, I do NOT want a piece of it, have it all!)
  • When in doubt - set something on fire.
  • If life gives you lemons - ask for salt.
  • Stupid is, who stupid does.
  • Lebe jeden Tag als wäre es Absicht (Live each day as if with intent)
  • Und eine Stimme sprach: Lächle und sei froh, denn es könnte schlimmer kommen. Und ich lächelte und war froh und es kam schlimmer. (And a voice said: Smile and be happy, it could get worse. And I smiled and was happy, and it got worse.)
  • A firework is hard work, a short period of nervousness, a very short period of happiness. But then it gets annoying, so lets pretend we are preparing the next one - now we have a happy ending.
