This is a thread for all you out there, from the red neck nation to the high and sophisticated money makers. This thread is for us guys to just make up, or let others in on some good quotes, life lessons and true proverbs.

So you can practically make up your own, or get some good serious, or funny crazy life lessons and let us all know.

So what is a proverb?


A noun
1 proverb, adage, saw, byword
a condensed but memorable saying embodying some important fact of experience that is taken as true by many people
Category Tree:
╚social relation
╚auditory communication
╚speech; speech communication; spoken communication; spoken language; language; voice communication; oral communication
╚saying; expression; locution
╚proverb, adage, saw, byword

It can be something like these...


It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
More funny quotes
Life is like an onion; you peel off one layer at a time and sometimes you weep.
More funny Carl Sandburg quotes

More funny Jean-Paul Sartre quotes

More funny Herbert Samuel quotes

More funny Lilly Tomlin quotes

or these


1. It hurts to love someone
and not be loved in return,
But what is more painful is
to love someone and never find the courage
to let that person know how you feel.

2. A sad thing in life is
when you meet someone who means a
lot to you, only to find out in the end that it was
never meant to be and you just have to let go.

3. The best kind of friend
is the kind you can sit on a porch
swing with, never say a word, and then walk
away feeling like it was the best conversation
you've ever had.

Or Just Whatever, like this one

"never step on the burning brown bag, you never know what is inside."
