Favorite one liners

It's a dank, wet morning in my part of Shropshire and I need cheering up. So, what are your favorite one liners (from any source).

I'll kick of with the note on fridge door "Gone to bed - dinner's in the dog".

I think some may be duplicates of previous posts, but can't spare the time to dredge through them all... Besides there's no harm in laughing twice at the same joke...

Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me either. Just pretty much leave me alone.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt and leaky tire.

It's always darkest before dawn. So if you're going to steal your neighbour's newspaper, that's the time to do it.

Always remember that you're unique. Just like everyone else.

Never test the depth of the water with both feet.

If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of car payments.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.

Some days you're the bug; some days you're the windshield.

Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.

Duct tape is like 'The Force'. It has a light side and a dark side, and it holds the universe together.

Generally speaking, you aren't learning much when your lips are moving.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Never miss a good chance to shut up.

Nice set of one liners.

The one thing about experience is that you don't learn from experience.

Well new to me anyway.

However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results. (Churchill)

Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it. (Eisenhower)

In a man to man fight the winner is the man who puts an extra round in his magazine. (Rommel)

Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake. (Napoleon)

It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations. (Churchill)
