01. Never give yourself a haircut after three margaritas.
02. You need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape.
If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40.
If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.
03. The five most essential words for a healthy, vital relationship are "I apologize" and "you are right."
04. Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.
05. If he / she says that you are too good for him / her - believe them.
06. Learn to pick your battles; ask yourself, "Will this matter one year from now?
How about one month? One week? One day?"
07. When you make a mistake, make amends immediately.
It's easier to eat crow while it's still warm.
08. Living well really is the best revenge.
09. Work is good, but it's not that important.
Money is nice, but you can't take it with you.
Statistics show most people don't live to spend all they saved; some die even before they retire.
Anything we have isn't really ours; it was given to us by God;
He just let us borrow it while we're here....even our kids.
