    APHORISM: A SHORT, POINTED SENTENCE EXPRESSING A WISE OR CLEVER OBSERVATION OR A GENERAL TRUTH.



    Ya'll find your own and add to this! I googled and there are several out there.

    1. The nicest thing about the future is that it always
    starts tomorrow.

    2.. Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make
    him wag his tail.

    3. If you don't have a sense of humor, you probably don't
    have any sense at all.

    4. Seat belts are not as confining as wheelchairs.

    5. A good time to keep your mouth shut is when you're in
    deep water.

    6. How come it takes so little time for a child who is
    afraid of the dark to become a teenager who wants to stay
    out all night?

    7. Business conventions are important because they
    demonstrate how many people a company can operate without.

    8. Why is it that at class reunions you feel younger than
    everyone else looks?

    9. Scratch a cat and you will have a permanent job.

    10. No one has more driving ambition than the boy who wants
    to buy a car.

    11. There are no new sins; the old ones just get more
    publicity.

    12. There are worse things than getting a call for a wrong
    number at 4 AM. - Like this: It could be a right number.

    13. No one ever says 'It's only a game.' when their team is
    winning.

    14. I've reached the age where the happy hour is a nap.

    15. Be careful reading the fine print. There's no way you're
    going to like it.

    16. The trouble with bucket seats is that not everybody has
    the same size bucket.

    17. Do you realize that in about 40 years, we'll have
    thousands of old ladies running around with tattoos?(And rap
    music will be the Golden Oldies !

    18. Money can't buy happiness -- but somehow it's more
    comfortable to cry in a Corvette than in a Yugo.

    19. After 60, if you don't wake up aching in every joint,
    you are probably dead!

    20. Always be yourself. Because the people that matter, don't
    mind. And the one's that mind, don't matter.

    21. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.



    **(added) Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery and today is a gift...that's why they call it the "present".

    Cher, this is exactly what I though when I attended a 50th high school class reunion! :smile2:

    I didn't graduate with the class for we moved to AR when I was in the 8th grade but they wanted me to attend.

    All 21 are good!
