    It’s not paranoia if they really are out to get ya.

    The harder I work the luckier I get.

    Wish in one hand and chit in the other; let me know which one fills up first.

    Even if you’re on the right track, you get run over if you just sit there.

    And my all time favorite, from my Pop, after a long day bustin’ a$$ side by side with him...” We didn’t get chit done today, boy, but we’re gonna give ‘er he’ll come tomorrow...”

    1 - If anything can go wrong, it will.
    2 - Left to themselves, things will go from bad to worse.
    3 - Murphy was an optimist.

    My grandmother and mother were in The Great Depression. Both used to say" There was nothing great about the depression, it was terrible". Well mom and gram I may get a taste of one myself.

    If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?

    Sometimes the bear eats you, sometimes he poops you out on the forest floor. The best you can hope for is to be left in a shady spot with a good view

    Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans

    It's not how hard you hit them. It's where you hit them hard

    Attributed to Benjamin Franklin: "beer is proof God loves us and wants us to be happy." But what he really said was about rain descending down on the vineyards changing the grapes to wine which is " constant proof God loves us and loves to see us happy. ".

    Sometimes when it feels like your life is falling apart, be patient, it might be falling into place!

    This is "Outwitted" by Edward Markham and my personal favorite:

    He drew a circle that shut me out, heretic, rebel, a thing to flout. But love and I had the wit to win: we drew a circle and took him in.
