Do Tell: What's Your Favorite Saying?

Do Tell: What's Your Favorite Saying?




I love sayings, although I have been known to mix them up from time to time. Old cliches may be cheesy, but they stick in people's minds because sometimes, there's no better way to state the obvious. One of my all time favorites is "you can't have your cake and eat it too", so ladies, do tell, what's your favorite saying?

Tis neither the situation which is good or bad but the mind which makes it so.

I love Zero_Cool's quote! My personal favorite is 'Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option.'

"Too many cooks spoil the broth." Could explain why I prefer to work alone... Also, wouldn't it make much more sense if it was "You can't eat your cake and have it too"? Because, if I have a cake, I can definitely still eat it. But if I eat it, I can't still have it. ...I've always hated that expression.

I don't know if its because of my current mood, but I've always kept this quote as my life's guidline: "Make new friends but keep the old ones; one is silver and the other's gold." Just totally spoke to me! :)

“If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. I'll always be with you.” -Winnie the Pooh "Nothings gonna change my world." -From my favorite song "Across the Universe" “If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.” -JK Rowling “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” -Dr. Seuss I could go on forever but I just LOVE these...

You can tell more about a person in an hour of play than a year of conversation. -or- Put hope in one hand and sh*t in the other, see which one fills up first.

adendum: This saying has a sewing meaning. If you're familiar with sewing, take the meaning literally and you'll be able to translate it into everyday life.

"A stitch in time saves nine" That one is from my mom, which was handed down to her from my grandmother, who probably got it from her mother. It means, do something right the first time around so you won't have to take extra steps later to fix the problem. Or, in layman's terms, don't do a half-a$$ job! I try to live by this saying everyday, and it seems to bring out the best in me.
