i was raised on a million of my dad's sayings:

there ain't no atheists in foxholes

the road to hell is paved with good intentions

no one ever said anything would be easy.

it's just as easy to fall in love with a rich woman as a poor one. (lol, he was hoping for me)

keep your nose in the wind, your eye on the skyline, and watch your topknot.

a lover of nature doesn't despair when she turns a cold shoulder.

walk like a lamb amongst wolves. but carry a big stick. (ok, he mixed a few).

and my fave: people are as hapy as they make their minds up to be.

Thank you to everyone who has shared their favorite "Saying". I've seen a lot of my own favorites and even some I've never seen!

Thanks for the laughs! I feel younger already!

Said many, many times by my Mom:
"A man convinced against his will, will be of the same opinion still!"

You can't MAKE anyone think differently than they already do if it's not in their personal makeup to change their way of thinking.


My Dad:

"Many hands make light work!"

When pigs fly.

If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.

I will live my life in such a way, I will prove my critics liars.

No one ever said life would be fair.

...like white on rice (or, like stink on s$#t.)

Re: when pigs fly....chickens are often called "pigs with feathers" because they eat almost anything...hmmm...my "pigs" fly...oh-oh. Be careful what you wish for...

we don't see things the way they are, we see them as we are.

life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards.

life is what happens while we are busy making other plans.

When some youngster tries to tell me about life, I remember that I have clothing older than he or she is. It always makes me smile.
