    Ever had a simple question pop in your head that defies common sense?  Do you have random words of wisdom that you wish to share with others?  Or have you heard someone else say/express something similar to this?  I have these sorts of things happen all the time, and I would like to provide a place for you to share yours, so sit back, have fun, and enjoy!

    I'll start off with with a few examples.


    Quantum mechanics is the dreams that stuff are made of.

    Why do they call pencil lead, "lead", when it's really graphite?

    Don't sweat the petty things.  Don't pet the sweaty things.

    He who runs behind car gets exhausted.  He who runs in front of car gets tired.

    Death is just life's way of saying, "You're fired!"


    Witty quotes, random thoughts, words of incouragement and wisdom are all welcome here!  So thank you, and hope to see some great posts!

      Faybe Bayposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      When I was convalescing I heard, shall we call it excessive squeaking on the furniture in the upstairs living room during the day and night. At all hours.While I was in the hospital my daughter had actually put a note on their door because of it. Letting them know they needed some less squeaky furniture, because you could even hear it in the hall.
      When my son came home from school he said, "Yeah, they have a lot of kids up there that don't go to school, and they jump on all the furniture when nobody's home..." I let him believe what he thought he was hearing.

    Wisdom of the Ages

    * Life is not about how fast you run, or how high you climb, but how well you bounce.

    * Keep skunks at a distance.

    * Life is simpler when you plow around the stumps.

    * Don't skinny dip with snapping turtles

    * Words that soak into your heart are whispered, not yelled.

    * Meanness doesn't happen overnight.

    * Forgive your enemies. It messes with their heads.

    * Don't corner something meaner than you.

    * You can catch more flies with honey than vinegar, assuming you want to catch flies.

    * It doesn't take a very big person to carry a grudge.

    * You can't un-say cruel words.

    * Every path has some puddles.

    * Most of the stuff people worry about never happens.

    Never test the depth of water with both feet.

    It's always darkest before the dawn, so if you're going to steal your neighbours newspaper that's the time to do it.

    Never criticize someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes. That way, when you do criticize them, you're a mile away and you've got their shoes.

    You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar, but you can catch even more with a dead squirrel.

    Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.

    You only meed two tools, WD-40 and Duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and it shouldn't, use Duct tape.

    Be really nice to your family. You never know when you are going to need them to empty your bedpan and feed you applesauce.
