I try to not buy cheap things that I want - if I really want something then it must be worth it so I subscribe to the theory 'buy once cry once'

there is an adage that a good friend told me a long time ago and its 'time wounds all heels' and in most cases he was usually right - its just that waiting makes me impatient



Participating in a gun buy back program because you think criminals have too many guns is like having yourself castrated because you think your neighbor has too many kids

Life sometimes sucks, get used to it.


If you don't like where you are in life, do every thing in your power to change it (as long as it is legal and does not impose on anyone else). I did 19 years ago.


What goes up will come down, eventually. Just don't let it hit you on the head.

"Yidn, shreibt un fershreibt"

"The Nazis entered this war under the rather childish delusion that they were going to bomb everyone else, and nobody was going to bomb them. At Rotterdam, London, Warsaw and half a hundred other places, they put their rather naive theory into operation. They sowed the wind, and now they are going to reap the whirlwind."

1. "Shit Happens" - I have a child that is constantly trying to determine the "why" of everything. When you're four, this is reasonable. When you're 54, not so much.

2. "If it didn't kill you, get over it and move on." - Corollary to the above.

3. "There's never time to do it right, but there's always time to do it over." - My personal stumbling block. I am pretty much devoid of patience. This causes me, among other things, to rush through stuff rather than wait until I have the proper materials and frame of mind. I AM getting better at it, but there's a long way to go.




Be careful when following the masses. Sometimes the M is silent.
