Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
Don't worry about what people think, they don't do it very often.
Going to church doesn't make you a Christian anymore than standing in a garage makes you a car.
Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.
If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you've never tried before.
A person who is nice to you but rude to the waiter is not a nice person.
If you look like your passport picture, you probably need the trip.
Bills travel through the mail at twice the speed of cheques.
Eat well, stay fit, die anyway.
No man has ever been shot while washing the dishes.  
Middle age is when broadness of the mind and narrowness of the waist change places. Opportunities always look bigger going than coming.
Junk is something you've kept for years and throw away a week before you need it.
There is always one more imbecile than you counted on.
Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.
By the time you can make ends meet, they move the ends.
It isn't the jeans that makes your bum look big.
There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."
People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.
You should not confuse your career with your life.
Never lick a steak knife.
You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests that you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.  
There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age eleven.
Your friends love you anyway.
Thought for the day: Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.

Haba DK, u should realise by now that we somehow our parents and the elderly ones in our societies have made us grown living by the rules of some of those adages. You dont need to employ them. U r living them.

Junk is something you've kept for years and throw away a week before you need it.

This came true for me today. I kept this piece of paper with the  address of a webpage that someone had setup, for over six months. Everytime I'd just pick it up and dust under it and put it away thinking I'd need it someday. Yesterday, I looked at it and thought what the*** * and promptly threw it in the bin. This morning the bin was emptied. This evening I needed to get into that site like yesterday, cos I was on a time leash... and I had thrown away my only link to the site. It didnt even have a name I could type...
