I just came across this one -

'The bad news is time flies - the good news is YOU ARE THE PILOT'

from Tim Smit, the guy that invented the Eden Project.

Any more out there?

Some Sayings of the Great Mandarin Sages

  1. 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 p*ss off and leave me alone.

     

  2. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt or a flat tyre.

     

  3. Remember, no is listening – until you fart.

     

  4. Never test the depth of water with both feet.

     

  5. If you think that no one cares if you are dead or alive, try missing a couple of mortgage payments.

     

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

     

  7. If at first you don’t succeed, avoid skydiving.

     

  8. Don’t worry, it only seems kinky the first time.

     

  9. When we are born we are naked, wet and hungry and get smacked on our arse. From then on life gets worse.

     

  10. Give a man fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

J9withdogs - 2007-08-30 11:25 PM I just love a man with big foibles, dearest, that's why our relationship is so successful

I'm sorry my dear but it must be goodbye. My other wife is insisting on a change of image so I've found one more in tune with my real cuddly and loveable self.
