Wow!  I could come up with hundreds, but to distill it down to a few:

"The best things in life aren't things."--Art Buchwald
"If you think can or you think you can't, you are right."--Henry Ford
"No one teaches riding quite as well as a horse."--C.S. Lewis
"Blessed is he who expects nothing for he shall never be disappointed."--Alexander Pope
"Contradiction is not a sign of falsity, nor the lack of contradiction a sign of truth." --Blaise Pascal
"'Tis with our judgments as our watches, none Go just alike, yet each believes his own." --Alexander Pope
"All models are wrong, but some are useful" --George E.P. Box
"Progress doesn't come from early risers - progress is made by lazy men looking for easier ways to do things." --Robert Heinlein
"Friends don't let friends lift deeps" Jim Fischer
"...no man's back is unbreakable and even beekeepers grow older. When full, a mere shallow super is heavy, weighing forty pounds or more. Deep supers, when filled, are ponderous beyond practical limit."--Richard Taylor
"we are constantly sacrificing the joys of the present on the altar of the future"--C.S. Lewis
"We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful."--C.S. Lewis
"The Master does nothing,
yet he leaves nothing undone.
The ordinary man is always doing things,
yet many more are left to be done." --Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching

Mine for dealing with kids is "Say what you mean & mean what you say!"   Another is that "it's hard to put up with the imperfections in others when you are so perfect yourself!"  J

There for a minute I thought it said, "All models are young, and most are sexy."

One of my favorites is, "Always put of until tomorrow what you don't want to do today."

"A Job well done is a job done right."

The chef's version of this (For Isaac) is, "A meal well cooked is burnt."

My Dad always taught me to "Never start a fight but always finish one."

My greatgrandfather used to say, "a swift kick in the groin is nature's equalizer."  He was a hard fisted, beer drinking, knife fighting black rock miner from PA.

Annette, yup.  I remember my Mother singing that song to me too, I always thought it was so pretty, and she had that voice that would stop the stars.  Have a most great, wonderful day, and health.  Cindi
There are strange things done in the midnight sun by the men who moil for gold.  The Arctic trails have their secret tales that would make your blood run cold.  The Northern Lights have seen queer sights, but the queerest they ever did see, what the night on the marge of Lake Lebarge, I cremated Sam McGee.  Robert Service

i like that one!!
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

It is the tragedy of the world that no one knows what he doesn't know and the less a man knows, the more sure he is that he knows everything.

--Joyce Cary
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.
