Personal Mottos


Recommended Posts

My grandmother once said to me "It's better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt."  So while I may type on UJ with reckless abandon; in the real world I usually try and take a moment to think before I speak.

Not sure where he got it, but my father also gave me this gem: "It doesn't matter how beautiful you think a woman is or how wonderful you think she may be, you can always be dead certain of one thing; someone, somewhere, is sick of her $hit."  

And since this is a website about dogs; Chef from the cartoon South Park said "You know what they say; you can't teach a gay dog straight tricks."

I'm not sure I have a motto to contribute.  But some of these remind me of things I've heard over the years.  I heard this a lot as a child, usually in answer to something I wanted or thought I had to have:

"use it up, wear it out, make it do… or do without."

Here's another one I use when lady luck may not shine on us.

There is not an ill wind blows that something good does not come of it.

"Don't care what you do Friday night as long as you're ready at first light Saturday to fix fence all day without whining."

"That might loosen faster if you turn it counterclockwise."

--A couple of the less profane family mottos.

"Be still! Quit your foolishness." (Granddad said that a lot when my brother and I were kids.)

Go to your left. NO YOUR OTHER LEFT!

I remember hearing that a bit differently in basic training.

"Not that left, Son! Your MILITARY left!"

I got this from an economics professor and it stuck:  "The only true cost in life is opportunity foregone"

My family motto:  "Do as little as possible, and that unwillingly, for it is better to be reprimanded than perform an arduous task."
