"Actions speak louder than words."
"Nothing ventured, nothing gained."
"Every cloud has a silver lining."
"Hope for the best and prepare for the worst."
"The darkest hours are just before dawn."
"Live and learn."

My favorite saying was my father's response to being asked how he was doing. He'd say, "Can't complain, but I do anyway."

A picture is worth a thousand words.
Practice what you preach.
Don't burn your bridges behind you.
First thing first.
Don't put all of your eggs in one basket.
Pick your Battles.
Don't wish your life away.

Quick as a whistle
In a coons age

I keep remembering the ones my Grandma told me. She was born in the early 1900's south of Atlanta, and was raised by her ol' ways mom & grandma - I can't repeat her classics here, they aren't "PC", but they were great.

"I'm gonna beat you like a red-headed step child"
"You just opened up a can off whoop-a$$"
"the whole 9 yards" - which actually refers to the length of a .50 cal belt in the B17's during WWII and not football.

LOL! I learned most of these from my dad:
When pigs whistle-or fly, I've heard both
Not the sharpest knife in the drawer
Playing poker with a pinochle deck
The elevator doesn't go to the top floor
Dumber than a box of rocks
Two bricks shy of a load
Too big for his/her britches
Do bears sh*t in the woods?
Good enough for government work
That'll fix your wagon
If brains were gunpowder, he couldn't blow his nose

OlYellerTJ's quote, "Not the sharpest knife in the drawer" got me thinking:

Not the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree.
The light's on, but nobody's home.
A few eggs short of a dozen.
A few cards short of a deck.
A few fries short of a happy meal.
The elevator doesn't go all the way to the top floor.
Fell out of the stupid tree and hit every branch on the way down.
His battery isn't fully charged.
Couldn't pour water out of a boot with the instructions on the heal.

Useless as tits on a pigeon.

If it's petty don't sweat it. If it's sweaty don't pet it.

If you don't like the smoke don't start the fire.

It's not how deep you plow that matters, it's how long you stay out in the field.

"You can't have your cake and eat it too," doesn't really make sense until you reverse it - "You can't eat your cake and have it too."

Cooler than the other side of the pillow.
Dumb as a box of rocks.
Hotter than a 5 gallon bucket of hell stewed down to a quart.

One from the farm...
You gotta make hay when the sun shines.
Meaning: when the time is right, take care of business b/c you don't know when you'll get another chance
