    "Inch by inch it's a cinch,yard by yard it's hard." My dad always taught us if you make progress every day you'll knock even the biggest job down to size in no time.

    I don't remember where I first heard it but here's one that is good AND true:

    “What’s wrong is wrong and will always be wrong, even if everyone is doing it. What’s right is right and will always be right, even if nobody is doing it.”

    Getting into an argument with someone on social media is kind of like wrestling with a pig in the mud. You both end up getting dirty and after a while you realize...the pig likes it.

    My tag line was something my wise old Dad used to say:
    "The School of Hard Knocks is not a tuition free institution."
    Also: "There's no education in the second kick of a mule."

  15. Haa! My dad also had a saying for something that went really fast. Something to the effect of “He was moving like a ruptured duck!” When I was a kid I thought that was hilarious. Thanks for the visual, dad!

    A couple of Mom's sayings.
    Don't spend your whole life to give your ass a ride. (Friends of our parents never had much & barely scraped by but they always had a new car.)
    Best way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your wallet.

  19. And one to go along with this^ "pennies make dimes" A lil at a time........
  20. A friend of mine is an old Missouri boy and I swear he had a saying for everything. One night we were out in my shop (it must have been around 1988 or so). I can’t remember exactly what we were doing but it was dark and we were both laying over the front fenders of his ‘57 Chevy truck reaching way back behind the engine trying to get something in place. We couldn’t see what we were doing so we were working by feel, covered with oil trying to get whatever it was in. I’m starting to get a little frustrated and as we’re laying there he looks over at me with a grin and says “It’s a bit like trying to stick a noodle up a wildcat’s ass, ain’t it?”

    Ever since that time whenever I’m working on a car struggling with something, I think of that and have to laugh.

    Four quotes on my office wall:

    "Quality must be built in - it cannot be inspected in". (Sign on the wall at Shelby America 1965)

    "It'll get worse before it gets better".
    (Dalton / Roadhouse)

    "The cure for everything is saltwater: Sweat, Tears, or the Sea". (Jimmy Buffet)

    "Quit fixing what broke - Fix why it broke."
    (This was drilled into me by a wise older mechanic who took me under his wing when I was young. Forty years later I still hear him in my head when facing a problem.)

    One other Jimmy Buffet quote that I think is appropriate for most things in life:
    " If you decide to run with the ball, just count on fumbling and getting the shit kicked out of you. But never forget how much fun it is just to be able to run with the ball".

    "ya gotta wanna" "I was better but I got over it" "Don't get mad at the genius you think in me because I can't fix what you can't either" "you never make a mistake if you never do anything" "can't see it from here" "Your so smart I bet you can pick up a piece of shit by the clean end" ""everything is easy to do to when you only suggest what I should do" "I'd like to give you a piece of my mind but I need all of it" "What kind of brakes does a Rabbit have? Hair brakes" "Telling me how great you are enough times doesn't make me believe it"
  30. Sometimes in life all a man has is his word, it better be good!

    If it’s worthwhile doing somebody else will do it,
    (Couple different was to take that one)

    Everything happens for a reason,
    sometimes the reason is because you’re stupid and make bad decisions.
