Words of Wisdom

More of the chickies.  This time strutting phrases of wisdom I have heard or overheard:
  • Labor is a craft, but relaxing is an art.
  • Sometimes the most important thing to hear is what isn't being said.
  • We have two ears and one mouth so that we will listen more than speak.
  • Instant gratification takes too long!
  • Procrastinate now, don't put it off 'til later.
  • Resist temptation, unless you can't.
  • You can never go wrong with black, except for sometimes.
  • You can't chew with someone else's teeth.
  • Just because it's worth saying doesn't mean it's worth repeating.
  • You can't ride two horses with one behind.
  • A half-truth is a whole lie.
Happy List it Tuesday!

Thank you for visiting! If you are so moved, please leave a comment. Hearing from you means the world to me.

    1. That would be great! I had to interpret the prompt this way because I couldn't remember any "overheard" goodies. I'm either not listening well enough or my memory is a sieve. Probably a bit of both!
