      Wow!!  Haven't heard that one before.  I don't even know what it means, but it's a mental image that is making me queesy.

    my favorite is "What goes around comes around".

      tritrainposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      That is one of my favorites too.  I have a hard time just coming up with the ultimate saying.  Dang.

      "What goes around comes around" is a classic.
      "Pay it forward" is kind of cheesy now. 

      But it's all the same.  big_smile

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

    Even 8 years after the Rock retired, it has to be either; "If you smell what The Rock is cooking" or "Roody-poo candy @ss."

    I once found a saying: "I am studying all my life - my tombstone will be my diploma". I liked it and put it on a fridge door for everybody to read. My kid wrote under it: "Just don't be in a rush to get your diploma,okay?"

    To thine own self be true.
