    Do you have a favorite saying?

    Thought this might be a fun thread. Interesting yet unrelated to the general CC. Do you have a favorite saying that you often use? Maybe too often but just seems to fit your personality or often repeated situation? It can and usually is either stolen from another or totally made up by yourself. I come from a family that seems to create and collect fun, interesting, and sometimes even on target sayings. so thought it would be fun to share with each other along with comments of course LOL. I'll start it out with:

    "Hey: If life was easy it wouldn't kill us all"
    I carry to protect myself and my loved ones from the BG's. Not to solve societies problems. That said: if more carried the deterrent would only have a positive overall effect on those problems.

    Just a couple that popped into my head:

    "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind." - Dr. Seuss
    "The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money [to spend]." - Margaret Thatcher

    Two of my favorite African sayings:

    Until the lions have their historians, tales of the hunt shall always glorify the hunter.

    The lion and the lamb shall lie down together, but the lamb won't get much sleep.

    "So it goes." This is a reference to one of my favorite books. Does anybody know the novel off the top of their head?

    Every complex problem has a simple solution, that is usually wrong.
    If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

    There ain't no such thing as a free lunch.
    The best things in life are not free. They are paid for with the blood of brave men and women.(paraphrase)

    Aren't they lovely? Have you ever noticed the resemblance to an orchid?

    All can be attributed to Robert Anson Heinlein, though he may have borrowed them himself.
