...and I have a BUNCH of the Ashleigh Brilliant cards...

"I was educated once, and it took me years to get over it."

"If things don't get any better, I may have to ask you to stop helping me."

"As long as I have you, I can endure all the troubles you inevitably bring." (my wife & I use this a LOT..*grin*)

"When I say nothing, I don't necessarily MEAN nothing."

"I could do great things, if I weren't so busy doing little things."

"Appreciate me now, and avoid the rush."

"Wonderful! You have some of my favorite problems!"

"Everything is controlled by a small, evil group; to which, unfortunately, nobody I know belongs."

"There has been an alarming increase in the number of things I know nothing about!" (one of my all time favorites)

"He wants a Winnie-the-Pooh blond....bare, with very little brain"
(mine)

When you bump into someone and they say "Oh, am I in your way?"....the answer is "No, you're in MY way."
(one of my best!...properly delivered, you can stop 'em in their tracks)

"Ya' don't wanta do too good of a job...folks will begin to expect it.."
    Talkin' John (an old carpenter at my university)
usually followed by, "That's close enough...it ain't like they're gonna take pictures of it."

"Take all you want....take more than you want."
My ol' daddy-(said at the dinner table)

In answer to "When are you gonna have this done?"..etc., Daddy would say, "Next October, at four o'clock" (no, I don't remember what he said IN October..)

"Six dozen of the other" a perfectly clear, but quaintly condensed version of "Six of one, half a dozen of the other"
Virgil Plute electrican at my Univ. (who had so many of these, we called them "Pluteisms")

"It'll feel better when it quits hurtin'."
(my 'ol daddy, again...to reassure someone, usually a child)

"Go climb up your thumb!" (it means: Get lost!)

"Give him the Broderick!" (beat the hell out of him)

"She sizes up as a worker." (a broad who takes a guy for his money)

"Tip your mitt."   (show your hand)

"Fill him with with daylight!" (shoot him)

"Let's dust!"   (Let's geddadahere!)

"I know from nothin'" (I don't know anything)

"What's the grift?"   (What are you tryin' to pull?)

"Give him the gate." (Get him out of here.)

"She skates around plenty." (She's a girl of easy virtue.)

i may not be totally perfect, but parts of me are excellent.

please dont tell me to relax, its only my tension that's holding me together.

i have you, you have me, at least one of us is lucky.

I'm writing to tell you I have nothing to say.

Anybody who thinks I am strange ought to meet you.

all i want is a warm bed, and a kind word, and unlimited power.

My life is already complicated enough, without trying to introduce organization into it.

If you can't keep in sight, at least keep in touch.

Why don't you write, and give me a chance not to reply?

Single-handedly, I have fought my way into this hopeless mess.

I waited and waited, and when no message came, I knew it must be from you.

To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first, and, whatever you hit, call it the target.

Please remain calm - it's no use both of us being hysterical at the same time.

all of these are from Ashleigh Brilliant

the one i use on the end of each of my e-mails is :

Peace will reign when the power of love

is stronger than the love of power.

i have been informed that this is a chiastic phrase. Which is this:
In each example, if you connect the similar words with a straight line, you form an "X", which is the Greek letter "chi". If you search for chiasmus, you will find entire websites devoted to this subject.
(such as ask not what your country can do for you
but what you can do for your country)
A few years ago I put this on my chrtistmas card:
'I'll see it when i believe it "

life is what happens when you are making plans

It is like trying to herd banana slugs (or cats)

we used to have a dog....when asked what her breed was
we answered "Canardly" because you can hardly tell what....

Ane o the things I love aboot Scots is the combination o utility & humour in common phrases sic as these:

"Ye're pure deid brilliant" (You're very clever/ inventive/ splendid)

"She wis aye gobsmacked" (she was shocked/surprised)

"it wis cauld kail het agin" (cold kail reheated, i.e. "old news")

Anither favourite line: (Dinnae ken the source o this)

"Madness takes its toll. Please carry exact change."

I am always looking for good one-liners. Some that have remained with me for years are as follows.

(For situations in which one is frustrated or POed.) If I had any hair left I'd pull it out.

If you discipline yourself then no one will have to do it for you.

Time is nature's way of making sure everything doesn't happen all at once.

Ignorance is a state of mind located between I don't know and I don't care.

If you decide to add any, I will shamelessly use them. The "Ignorance is a state of mind" one is my own. Welcome to it.
