Sayings Worth Repeating



Six months in the laboratory can often avoid two hours in the library.

Honor the deal. If you make a deal, keep it or beg to get out of it.

Accomplish at least one project every day. If it’s a big project, make progress every day until it’s done.

KISS stands for Keep It Simple, Stupid. This is more important to remember if you happen to be smart.

Why pay someone else to fuck it up, when you can fuck it up yourself for free?

Education is the means by which nothing turns into something.

Trust but verify.

When you’re out of money, you’re out of business.

Think long and hard about it before you buy it. It’s usually better to have more money in the bank. Everything requires maintenance.

Pay to insure everything always.

Doctors want to make money too.

Don’t get fat.

Maintain your physical fitness. Get creative if need be: chop and carry wood, mow grass, hike, plant and tend a garden, carry kids, throw sports balls, take the steps instead of the elevator, walk instead of drive, etc.

Maintain your mental fitness. Play board games like chess, checkers, and Risk; and card games like memory and poker; take a class; and do whatever else entertains you.

Don’t waste time watching television. It’s designed for idiots, and can only dull your mind. Read a book instead.

In you’re enrolled in a class, READ THE BOOK.

Plan ahead. Winter is coming.

The Seven Ps are: Proper Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance.

Luck favors the prepared.

There is no luck.

A person who chops his own wood gets warmed twice.

Most women like a man who is useful.

Your everyday carry items should include cash, credit cards, chapstick, a Swiss Army knife, a folding fighting knife, a black Sharpie, a blue pen, an LED Maglite, a Zippo lighter, a semi-automatic handgun, extra magazines for the gun, a solar-powered watch, and a smartphone.

It’s better to overdress than underdress. You can always roll downhill socially, but rolling uphill is trickier. A person dressed high-class can easily speak to a person dressed low-class. It doesn’t go the other way around.

Be polite, kind, patient, and generous, but comport yourself as if you own the place.
