"All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence, and then success is sure." I wrote this one after meeting drummer's great-grandfather.
"Be careful when reading health books; you may die of a misprint." This one came when I met garyg's great-grandfather.
"Do not undervalue the headache. While it is at its sharpest it seems a bad investment; but when relief begins, the unexpired remainder is worth $4 a minute." Met this feller who said he had somethin' called 'clusters'. He convinced me this one had value.
"From his cradle to his grave a man never does a single thing which has any first and foremost object but one -- to secure peace of mind, spiritual comfort, for himself." Gotta admit this one is totally self-centered.
"Get you facts first, and then you can distort 'em as much as you please." I call this one my 'political commentary', but you can interpret it any way you wish, which is, of course, the essence of writing....the reader has to figure it out for himself.
