A SPOKEN WORD IS NOT A SPARROW
ONCE IT FLIES OUT, YOU CANT CATCH IT.

SUCCESS & REST DON'T SLEEP TOGETHER.

THE SOBER MAN'S SECRET IS THE
DRUNKARD'S SPEECH.

A FLY WILL NOT GET INTO A CLOSED MOUTH.

IF YOUR HEART IS A ROSE YOUR MOUTH WILL SPEAK PERFUMED WORDS.

TAKE THY THOUGHTS TO BED WITH THEE
FOR THE MORNING IS WISER.

HAPPINESS IS NOT A HORSE; YOU CANNOT HARNESS IT.

LOVE & EGGS ARE BEST WHEN FRESH.

PRAY TO GOD BUT CONTINUE TO ROW TO SHORE.

ALL ARE NOT COOKS THAT WORK WITH LONG KNIVES.

BEWARE OF A QUIET DOG & STILL WATER.

ABSENTMINDNESS IS SEARCHING 
FOR THE HORSE YOU ARE RIDING.

LAW IS A FLAG 
GOLD IS THE WIND THAT WAVES IT.

GOD WANTED TO CHASTISE MANKIND
SO HE SENT LAWYERS.



​                                       JAPANESE PROVERBS

WHEN THE CHARACTER OF A MAN IS NOT CLEAR TO YOU
LOOK AT HIS FRIENDS.

IF MONEY BE NOT THY SERVANT, IT WILL BE YOUR MASTER. ​

ONE KIND WORD CAN WARM 3 WINTER MONTHS.

DON'T STAY LONG WHEN THE HUSBAND IS NOT HOME.

​NEVER RELY ON THE GLORY OF THE MORNING 
NOR THE SMILES OF YOUR MOTHER-IN-LAW.


                                        CHINESE PROVERBS

YOU CANNOT PREVENT THE BIRDS OF SORROW FROM FLYING OVER YOUR HEAD
BUT YOU CAN PREVENT THEM FROM BUILDING NESTS IN YOUR HAIR.

HABITS ARE COBWEBS AT FIRST
CABLES AT LAST.

ONE JOY SHATTERS A HUNDRED GRIEFS.

IF YOU ARE PATIENT IN A MOMENT OF ANGER, YOU WILL 
ESCAPE A HUNDRED DAYS OF SORROW.

KISSING IS LIKE DRINKING SALTED WATER;
YOU DRINK & YOUR THIRST INCREASES.

CONSIDER THE PAST & YOU SHALL KNOW THE FUTURE.

FAILURE IS NOT FALLING DOWN
BUT REFUSING TO GET UP.

HABITS ARE COBWEBS AT FIRST;
CABLES AT LAST.

DISTANCE TESTS A HORSE'S STRENGTH
TIME REVEALS A PERSONS CHARACTER.

TELL ME & I'll FORGET; SHOW ME & I MAY REMEMBER;
INVOLVE ME & I'LL UNDERSTAND.

A WISE MAN MAKES HIS OWN DECISIONS,
AN IGNORANT  MAN FOLLOWS PUBLIC OPINION.


HAPPINESS IS LIKE A SUNBEAM.










                                  GEORGE BERNARD SHAW 

IF ALL THE ECONOMISTS WERE LAID END TO END
THEY WOULD NOT REACH A CONCLUSION.

I LEARNED LONG AGO NOT TO WRESTLE WITH A PIG.
YOU GET DIRTY, BESIDES THE PIG LIKES IT.

BEWARE OF FALSE KNOWLEDGE
IT IS MORE DANGEROUS THAN IGNORANCE.

DO NOT DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU EXPECT THEY SHOULD  DO UNTO YOU.
THEIR TASTES MAY NOT BE THE SAME.

PEOPLE WHO SAY IT CANNOT BE DONE
SHOULD NOT INTERRUPT THOSE WHO ARE DOING IT.

IF YOU CAN'T GET RID OF THE SKELETON IN YOUR CLOSET
YOU"D BEST TEACH IT TO DANCE.

THE POWER OF ACCURATE OBSERVATION IS COMMONLY CALLED CYNICISM
BY THOSE WHO HAVE NOT GOT IT.

A GOV'T. THAT ROBS PETER TO PAY PAUL
CAN ALWAYS COUNT ON PAUL.

A HAPPY FAMILY IS BUT AN EARLIER HEAVEN.

I OFTEN QUOTE MYSELF, IT ADDS SPICE TO MY CONVERSATION.
