I learned as
a child;

  • No matter how hard you try,
    you can’t baptize a cat.
  • Never hold a dust-buster
    and a cat at the same time.
  • If your sister hits you,
    don’t hit her back. They always catch the 2nd person.
  • You can’t trust dogs to
    watch your food.

I learned as
an adult;

  • Resist killing your
    teenagers, you will eventually get some terrific grandchildren.
  • Marry your trophy wife
    first – it’s less expensive.
  • Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
  • We never really grow up; we only learn how to act in public.

I learned
growing old;

  • It is frustrating when you
    know all the answers and nobody bothers to ask you the questions. 
  • You’re never too old to
    learn something stupid.
  • A clear conscience is
    usually a sign of a bad memory.
  • Nostalgia isn’t what it
    used to be.
  • The voices in my head may
    not be real, but they have some good ideas.
  • I used to be indecisive;
    now I’m just not sure.
  • There are two theories to
    arguing with a woman; neither works.
  • Take time to live – eat
    dessert first.
  • Write your own eulogy.
