APHORISM --
A SHORT, POINTED SENTENCE EXPRESSING A WISE, CLEVER OBSERVATION;
A GENERAL TRUTH OR ADAGE.

Some Examples:



1. The nicest thing about the future is it always starts tomorrow.

2. Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail.

3. If you don't have a sense of humor, you probably don't have any sense at all.

4. Seat belts are not as confining as wheelchairs.

5. A good time to keep your mouth shut is when you're in deep water.

6. How come it takes so little time for a child who is afraid of the
dark to become a teenager who wants to stay out all night?

7. Business conventions are important because they demonstrate how
many people a company can operate without.

8. Why is it that, at class reunions, you feel younger than everyone else looks?

9. Scratch a dog and you will find you have a permanent job.

10. No one has more driving ambition than the boy who anxiously awaits his 16th birthday.

11. There are no new sins; the old ones just get more publicity.

12. There are worse things than getting a call for a wrong number at 4 AM; it could be a right number.

13. No one ever says 'It's only a game' when their team is winning.

14. I've reached the age where the happy hour is a nap.

15. Be careful reading the fine print. There is no way you're going to like it.

16. The trouble with bucket seats is not everybody has the same size bucket.

17. Do you realize in about 40 years we'll have a millions of old ladies running around with tattoos? (And rap music will be the Golden Oldies!)

18. Money can't buy happiness - but somehow it's more comfortable to cry in a Mercedes than in a Kia.


9. After 70 if you don't wake up aching in every joint, you are probably dead
.

Yesterday when doing some much needed dusting I found a Christmas gift which was a calendar for every day of the year with a different word and definition for each day. I really must start reading it and learning words for my aphorisms;)

As I read down the list, I would think, 'that is so right and I will comment on that one.' Hello, they were ALL commentable.
Thanks. Am still nodding in agreement.
