Pithy sayings

Just found a new one: "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail." Not altogether true, but certainly pithy.

A favourite: "Charm is a good lubricant but a dirty fuel." should be said with a strong Scottish accent, DURTY. I say it to the Boy on a regular basis.

"It's no loss what a frien' gets."

I would appreciate contributions, email them if you are too shy to blog.

An addition: "If you can control your family, you've gone wrong somewhere."

Another addition: "Don't be a perpetrator, don't be a bystander, don't be a victim." Quakers?

"Don't mistake the map for the territory."

And an all-time great one for brooding on, also VERY TRUE: "Beware what you pride yourself on."

Yet another: "You can never get enough of what you don't really want." Why we get fat when unhappy.

Pithy about the lost ones-

"Willfu' waste makes woefu' want" (Best with a Scots accent)

"There's a wee slippy stane afore a' body's door"

"Time wounds all heels" ------ "So many men - so little time" (Seen on a tee-shirt)

"Awa' and bile yer heid" ------(ditto, as above) Why so many Scots ones?
