Simple Mottoes for Life


My Father used to say:

A shot to the mouth often offends


You can lead me by a silk but dont drive me with a stick

also only many issues e.g.

Don't say you worked down the coal mines for 27 years
when you had 25 years off in the middle.


Nothings bad that could that could not be worse


They'll eat them dry next time.
