So many good ones! I will be printing these out to add to my collection!


I especially liked ' Regarding memories: Look backward fondly, but don't stare' from argentus. It reminded me of another favorite:
'Things are never so bad that they can't get worse, and never so good that they can't get better'.

My kids refer to my constant use of adages as my 'fortune cookie wisdom'.


Thank you all for your contributions!

Ah, I see more good ones have been added! Thanks you all!

Another favorite of mine:
The journey of a lifetime begins with the first step.

My all-time favorite, and most often used would probably be:

Old age and treachery will overcome youth and skill every time.
