From 'A Cynics Guide To Life':

** The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt and a leaky tire.
** I believe for every drop of rain that falls, a flower grows. And a foundation leaks And a ball game gets rained out And a car rusts and...
** Follow your dream! Unless it's the one where you're at work in your underwear during a fire drill.
** Always take time to stop and smell the roses... and sooner or later, you'll inhale a bee.
** Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either, just leave me alone.
** If you don't like my driving, don't call anyone. Just take another road. That's why the highway department made so many of them.
** When I'm feeling down, I like to whistle. It makes the neighbor's dog run to the end of his chain and gag himself.
** It's always darkest before dawn. So if you're going to steal the neighbor's newspaper, that's the time to do it.
** Each day I try to enjoy something from each of the four food groups: the bourbon group, the salty-snack group, the caffeine group, and the "whatever-the-thing-in-the-tinfoil-in-the-back-of-the-fridge-is" group.
** Into every life some rain must fall. Usually when your car windows are down.
** It's a small world. So you gotta use your elbows a lot.
** This land is your land. This land is my land. So stay on your land and get off my land
** Love is like a roller coaster: when it's good you don't want to get off, and when it isn't... you can't wait to throw up.
