    Hello,

    I’m sure we’ve all got favourite sayings that we’ve either heard or used at times. Many of mine are in a different language [laugh4], but I do like this one.
    ‘Better to be the tail on a Lion than to be the nose of an Ass.’
    What are your favourites?

    Cheers
    Sooshie

    This one was a favourite one of mine when I was in my late teens early twenties… Needless to say I don’t remeber some of it.

    “A life lived sober, is a life half lived.” Hee hee…

    My husbands favourite would have to be,

    “Go hard or go home!”

    Steph.

    One of mine…

    To conquer fear is to have defeated your greatest enemy.

    Although, I’m getting to kinda like the ‘sober’ one from Scremin

    Hiya,

    Yep, that’s a funny one! One that always used to make me giggle was “Don’t get your nickers twisted in a knot”.

    Supa freak, we used to say,

    “Eat more, drink more, sink more piss!”

    Maybe that’s what your thinking of.

    ” I have a Dream” – Martin Luther King

    “Humans are not creatures of logic but creatures of emotion” – Dale Carnegie

    “Better to aim your speak at the moon and strike an eagle than aim it at an eagle and strike only a rock” – forgot the person

    When I was at high school I had a sign on my desk which read:

    “I’ll never lose incentive, you can’t lose something you never had”

    I’ve replaced it with my presonal mantra of:

    “You’re only ever as good as you allow yourself to be”

    I also like:

    “To err is human, to forgive divine”; and

    “When you’re reaching for the stars there’s a long way to fall”; and

    “Opinions are like a***holes, everybody’s got one but nobody wants to hear anybody else’s” [biggrin]

    And a whole raft more…

    Cheers,
    Michael.

    and

    Apart from my signature, I like what my dad used to say…

    “You can’t put an old head on young shoulders.”

    And this is not really a saying but…

    We the willing, lead by the unknowing
    are doing the impossible for the ungrateful.
    We have done so much, for so long, with so little
    we are now qualified to anything with nothing.

    Cheers, Nobleone [blink]
