Saying of the Day.......

I thought it would be fun to try this thread. Please share one saying per day, could be one you heard, you made up, you got from a relative, whatever.

Here's one I made up about 15 years ago: "Always leave the window of opportunity open, so the breeze of destiny can blow in"........

When learning to drive my Dad would say...."it's better to be wrong than dead right". I've never forgotten that one and my children heard it many times from me

Courtesy of my Dad and Grandad - they are of a distinctly US southern flavor:

The road to hell was paved with good intentions.

Do it- it will help you build character

Don't let your alligator mouth overload your butterfly behind

Courtesy of my other grandfather:

When you are up to your a$$ in alligators, it is difficult to remember that all you wanted to do was drain the swamp.

Stayed a couple nights, and took the pic below, (circa 1983 in Llandudno, Wales), of the building, (unfortunately since razed), once home to Alice Liddell's (Alice in Wonderland) parents:
