        LOL! I find myself saying that a lot to my kids also!

        My all-time favorite saying, however, is: "It's better to remain silent and be thought of a fool, than to speak up and remove all doubt."

        I may not always adhere to it, but I think it's a great quote.

      Que sera, sera - such a nice quote and song.

      I rarely use quotes but my dad sang that song on car journies to my aunt, when as a child and it stuck!

    My favorite saying has been "OMG" as of late, maybe because there has been so many moments to say it. LOL

    I love this quote from A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh: "Did you ever stop to think, and then forget to start again?" So clever and so adorable.

      Does that count? Of course, i don't get to insert that into casual conversations too often.
