Words of Wisdom for the Modern Age
Wisdom today means something different for the young, modem Western generation.
 Wisdom of the ancients always served civilisation well. In the age of the TV sitcom , witty New York repartee and the instant one-liner, Western wisdom in the modern sense can mean something more like the dialogue from an American sitcom. Here's sampling of the some of the wittier one-lines circulating through Western society circles these days:
 I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow is not looking good either.
 1 love deadlines. I especially like the wooshing sound they make as they go flying by.
 Tell me what you need, and I'll tell you how to get along without it.
 Accept that some days you are the pigeon and some days the statue.
 Needing someone is like needing a parachute. If they aren't there the first time, chances are you won't be needing them again.
 On the keyboard of life, always keep one finger on the escape key.
 You are slower than a herd of turtles stampeding through peanut butter.
 Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, because you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
 Everybody is somebody else's weirdo.
 Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
 Don't be irreplaceable--if you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.
 Eat one live frog the first thing in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you for the rest of the day.
 Everything can be filed under miscellaneous.
 You are always doing something marginal when the boss drops by your desk.
 When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question "how would adventure star Indiana Jones handle this?"
 I don't have an attitude problem. you have a perception problem.
