    There was an old parable similar to this that told the story of a city slicker seeing a farmer lift his pig up to the branches of an apple tree so the pig could eat the apples. The city slicker asked the farmer if it wouldn't save time to just pick the apples and give them to the pig.

    After considering it, the farmer replies, "Yeah, I reckon. But what's time to a pig?"

    A room mate and I used to say that to each other whenever either of us was stressed out about something.

    Courtesy of Mark Twain:

    " When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant, I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years. "

    I quite like this that an old friend used to say:

    'I take the Taoist approach to life, do as little as possible'.

    What made it amusing was that he spent most of his time in the pub or sitting at home watching snooker and quaffing wine. But he was also a great player :-)

    Never argue with an idiot, they'll drag you down to their level & beat you with experience.

    & Rob (Post #24) reminded me of this - when asked to use 'Horticulture' in a sentence Dorothy Parker said

    'You can lead a whore to culture but you can't make her think'

    - Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity [or my preferred variant: don't assume conspiracy when incompetence suffices to explain].

    - The plural of anecdote is data

    - A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.

    - When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

    - I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy
