A couple tidbits from my shop.

The golden Rule: "Whatever you do, don't make it worse!"

"When all else fails, use a bigger hammer."

For our summer repair assistants: "There's no such thing as stupid questions, just stupid people who don't ask them and screw things up."

Dr. Seuss:

"We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love."

"Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple."

"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells.  Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope.  Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities."

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better.  It's not."

Carry a towel.

Is that the guide or Towelie?


Either way.

Don't "get involved" in crazy.  (it's a little censored from what I've always been told and learned the hard way)

Thumper, from "Bambi": "If you can't say somethin' nice, don't say nothin' at all."

Also from Thumper: "Eating greens is a special treat, It makes long ears and great big feet. But it sure is awful stuff to eat.  I made that last part up myself."

Perform your role; if you are hired to be a sideman, be a sideman.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

If you ever walk into a bar with a rabbi and a priest, your entire life may be a joke.

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons.  For you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare?
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows;
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass;
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night;
No time to turn at Beauty’s glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance;
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began?
A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
W H Davies

And climb on every rung
