    Ben Franklin's "Poor Richard's Almanac" had the answers, all in a short little book.
    ...and 33anda3rd hits it with Mark Twain.

    But the one I fall back on was by my Grandma: "IF YA CAN'T DO, MAKE DO."

    A quote from my Mother, I have found this to be very true, "Always Remember, There Are Many More Horse's Ass's Than There Are Horse's" My Father, " If You Want It, Work For it, Make it Happen" "Be Happy with What You Have, Don't Be Unhappy Over What You Don't Have" Both of my parents were Children in the Depression and grew up in some hard/tough times, being their Baby-Boomer, I have lived in the best of times, still do IMO, times have changed, BUT still the best place in the world IMO. "Life Is What YOU Make of It" this is something I say when I hear someone whining and bitchin over something, "There Are No Excuses." 2 quotes from me, feel free to use them.
  9. "If you've got them by the balls their hearts and minds will follow.” The Duke!

    A favorite, often attributed to Mark Twain but someone else may have come up with it-
    When I was a boy of fourteen my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to be around him. But when I got to be twenty-one I was astonished how much he had learned in seven years.

    They say you are a product of your environment so I suppose I can attribute my opinionated attitude to my mother.
    One thing she was known to say was "I say what I think and I'm thinking all the time".
    Another one is quoted below.

    One of the funny quotes I coined with my long time excellent parts man when I brought back a part that didn’t fit and he would tell me that’s what I asked for. I’d say “Don’t give me what I asked for... give me what I needed”. Had a lot of laughs over that one. Bones

    Im not a bog quote guy, I figure its not what a man says but it's who he is that counts. My wife on the other hand loves this stuff, she has one sign in our kitchen that used to hang in our beach house that says something like "I can not control the wind but I can set my sails".
  24. Don't sweat the small shit and it's all small shit.
    My signature reveals my attitude pretty well.
  25. "Old age and treachery will overcome youth and enthusiasm".....................Akton Miller.

    If you always tell the truth, you don't need a good memory.

    Never argue with an idiot because he will drag you down to his level and then beat you with experience.
