I don't have any. Oscar Wilde pinched them first.

Be yourself - everyone else is already taken.

I have the simplest of tastes. I like only the best.

The public have an insatiable curiosity to know everything, except what is worth knowing

The pure and simple truth is rarely pure and never simple.

"Common sense" is a misnomer, it's not that common...

I've also heard it called "conventional wisdom," I think a lot of people missed that convention...

-both above are mine

I also really like the second in my signature, the first in my signature is another of my own...

Nothing is away from godliness.
All is God.

"A man is born as many men and dies a single one."

That saying has made me stop and think, many times, about the man I want to be remembered as.

This is one the most helpful of my home-grown "rules" to live by, and I guarantee if you utilize it often, you will benefit:

Rule #3. If you can't find it, it's under something, behind something, or cleverly disguised by something (such a dark colored object sitting on top of a dark colored background).

It works more often than not (for me), and beats the heck out of randomly ransacking the place in desperation. Take a deep breath, and start looking under and behind stuff nearest to where you think the missing thing should be. Usually something was laid down on top of whatever it is you're looking for.
