Modern Proverbs #4

There's no such thing as nonexistence.

Cooperation can only be reached if we work together.

My identity lies in not knowing who I am.

Free advice is worth what you paid for it.

Life is full of uncertainties...or is it?

Quote of the Day #52

Interviewer Hugh Downs asks Segovia: “You do a lot of work, you practice, you perform, you travel. You’re 94. You still teach. Do you ever feel like saying, ‘This is enough, I want to rest’?”

Segovia, whose career en­ured more than 70 years and who still had been giving 25 concerts a year, replied:

“You know what I think? If I am tired now, I don’t mind, because I have eternity to rest.”

Modern Proverbs #3

No one is listening until you make a mistake.

Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else.

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

If you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything.

Prejudiced people are all alike.

Modern Proverbs #1

The 50-50-90 rule: Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there's a 90% probability you'll get it wrong.

One should never generalize.

Avoid cliches like the plague.

Analogies in writing are like feathers on a snake.

Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement.

The Scot's Toast

May the best you've ever seen
Be the worst you'll ever see.
May the mouse ne'er leave your girnal
Wi' a tear drap in its e'e,
May your lum keep blithely reekin'
Till ye're auld enough to dee;
May you aye be just as happy
As I wish you now to be!

Quote of the Day #49

Sometimes, however, it takes a lot of didactic tricks to detach people from their superstitions. An American woman once confronted me with the reproach, "How can you still write some of your books in German, Adolf Hitler's language?"

In response, I asked her if she had knives in her kitchen, and when she answered that she did, I acted dimayed and shocked, exclaiming, "How can you still use knives after so many killers have used them to stab and murder their victims?"

She stopped objecting to my writing books in German.

-- Viktor E. Frankl [survivor of the Holocaust, psychiatrist, creator of logotherapy]
