    Default Aphorisms

    If you don't what an aphorism is, here's a quick definition: a brief, cleverly worded statement that makes a wise observation about life.

    Here's some example's from Benjamin Franklin's Poor Richard's Almanack:
    1. Love your neighbor;yet don't pull down your hedge.
    2. If a man empties his purse into his head, no man can take it away from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.
    3. Three may keep a secret if two of them are dead.
    4. tart words make no friends; a spoonful of honey will catch more flies than a gallon of vinegar.
    5. Glass, china, and reputation are easily cracked and never well mended.
    6. Fish and visitors smell in three days.
    7. He that lieth down with dogs shall rise up with fleas.

    What are some aphorisms that know of/heard of?

    Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't come to yours.

    If you come to a fork in the road, take it.

    You can observe a lot just by watching.

    The road to Hell wasn't paved in a day.

    A bird in the hand should get out of the kitchen.
    Visit the Toy Dungeon Studios Store and buy a shirt or zipper pull, damnit!

    Grandkids and their Grandparents get along because they share a common enemy.

    Two things are certain in life, death and taxes.

    Animals on alert always stop to drink.

    Virtue is its own reward; though carnality's can be shared.

    Do onto others, as you would have them do onto you. So return the favor when others do bad onto you. (Its only fair)

    Many of the following aphorisms are for amusement purposes, but nonetheless, probably true/useful...

    Only take as much as you would give.
    He who saves a man against his will as good as murders him.
    The only wealth is life.
    Experience is a comb that nature gives to the bold.
    Never test the depth of the water with both feet.
    A closed mouth gathers no foot.
    If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.
    Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in the boat and drink beer all day.
    Never be irreplaceable; if you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.
    Generally speaking, you aren't learning much while you are talking.
    Sex is like air; it's not important unless you aren't getting any.
