I heard a slightly different version:

Confucius say "A bird in hand make it hard to blow nose."

No matter where ya go, there the hell ya are! - Ollie Joe Prater

Redneck words of wisdom:
Man who keep hands in pockets, Feels a little Cocky

He who laughs last probably doesn’t understand the joke.

When the milk from one udder runs out, start sucking on anudder.

It only takes 1 careless match to start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box & a gallon of Gas to start a bonfire!

Don’t run behind cars…you’ll get exhausted!

He’s so dumb; he could throw himself on the ground and miss.

If it’s spinning, don’t stick your hand in it…otherwise you won’t be able to hold your sign.

Crowded elevator smells different to midgets

Don’t sweat the petty things and don’t pet the sweaty things.

If everything is coming your way, you’re in the wrong lane!

That’s about as useful as a trap door on a canoe.

My tongue twisted around my eye teeth and I couldn't see what I was saying!

Here's some ancient redneck proverbs. Very funny. check it out!:

Some days you're the bug and some days you're the windshield.


Some people put up walls, but not to keep people out. They want to see who cares enough to knock them down.

Sage advice from Danny Trejo.



"I'd rather shoot for the moon and miss than aim for the gutter and succeed."

He knows what he's talking about. He's been through the wringer and back.

Great idea for a thread!
I have been collecting adages for awhile now.
Here are some that I have collected.
My all time favorite:

"Be who you are, say what you feel.
Because those who mind don't matter,
And those who matter don't mind!"
....Dr. Seuss

"If you can't handle me at my worst,
then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best!"
....Marilyn Monroe

"Condemnation before investigation,
is the heighth of ignorance."
....Albert Einstein

"Any fool can criticize, condemn & complain.
But it takes character & self control,
to be understanding & forgiving."
....Dale Carnegie

"To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason,
is like administering medicine to the dead."
....Thomas Paine

Even if you are a minority of one,
the truth is still the truth!

"The greatness of a nation & it's moral progress,
can be judged by the way it's animals are treated."
....Mahatma Gandhi

Say what you mean,
& mean what you say!

"By failing to prepare,
you are preparing to fail."
....Ben Franklin

"People who want to share their religious views with you,
almost never want you to share yours with them."
....Dave Barry

The last time that we saw anything like this was...NEVER!!!

"They must find it difficult,
those who have taken authority as the truth,
rather than truth as the authority."
....G. Massey

"If you don't know where you are going,
any road will take you there!"
....George Harrison

A very valuable one that my boss told me at my first job and it has served me well through the years:


Leopards don't change their spots.


It's always a good one to tell yourself when you're toying with the idea of going back to an ex - lol.

When truth is found, we do nothing but regale her virtue, when truth is lost, we do nothing to try to find her. (don't google, it's mine)

"Murphy's Law says that if something bad can happen, it will...Therefore, if you anticipate all the bad things that could happen, then only good things can come about" (IE: It can't get any worse than this, right?).

"I'm only crazy when in a room full of crazy people"

"You can't fix stupid...but you can sure try"

"If my decision does not have an impact on your life, and essentially does not harm you or anyone else, who are you to tell me how I should live it?"

"One who tries to be everywhere at once is often nowhere to be found"

And, this one I will turn into a bumper sticker some day: "If your car is worth more than mine, you can't afford to be on my...well, you get the hint".

if you lie down with dogs you'll wake up with fleas.


this one has several variants.
"i'm not impressed by other peoples money, i'm impressed with my own."

if you aren't happy with what you have, what makes you think you'll be happy with more?
