    You can't make a silk purse out of a sows' ear.

    You got champagne taste and a beer pocketbook.

    My neighbor next door, will come quicker when I hollar, than my brother, on the other side of the planet.
    Yesterday is history, tomorow a mystery. All we have is the here and now, it's a special gift. That's why we call it "The Present"

    Pity the poor agnostic dyslexic insomniac who lies awake at night wondering if there really is a Dog.

    Veni, Vidi, Vici------ I Came, I saw, I Conquered
    A quote by Julius Caesar after five triumphs , four within the same month. His intent was to note his speed in dispatching the war, not the outcome of the war! Frank

    My Mom also used to say (as I was being punished for any various youthful infractions of behavior),

    "If you're going to dance the jig, you must pay the fiddler."

    This one from medical school "Nolite te *******es carborundorum", can also be said as "Illigitimati non carborundum". Meaning "Don't let the *******s grind you down."
    While this is not really a saying, also from the Roman Empire, "Parting shot". Came from the early 2nd century during emperor Trajan's campaign against the Parthian empire, the Parthians had learned a new trick; when they would apparently flee on horseback, the Roman calvary would chase them. The Parthians had learned to turn in their saddles and accurately fire their bows. They killed approx. one out of every ten soldiers in the mounted legion that way. So today we get "Parting (Parthian) shot" and also the term "decimate".

    Oh well, they censored me. I figured since I first heard it on broadcast television, it would be okay here. The deleted word stands for a masculine illigitimate child.

    I appreciate and understand your contribution.

    I'm also impressed that an ancient Latin language filter was employed to censor you!

    Imagine that...

    Attributed to Benjamin Franklin, distributed through his "Poor Richard's Almanack" (sic)

    One of many Great maxims and philosophies from the times of our Founding Fathers. Many adaptable to current thought....

    Best,
    Scott

    PS. To further explain the tenet from above, when this idea was conceived, the people in the new land were still under considerable British influence. The monetary unit that was at first adapted to the new colonies were that of England. Pennies, tuppence, shillings, pounds, crowns, etc....

    In the same vein, Franklin also cautioned to, "Mind the pennies and the dollars will mind themselves."

    Au24k,

    I have been censored in English before, but I believe this is the first time my Latin has been.

    "When under trial, let no one say: 'I am being tried by God.' For with evil things God cannot be tried, nor does he himself try anyone. . . . Do not be misled, my beloved brothers. Every good gift and every perfect present is from above, coming down from the Father of the celestial lights, who does not vary or change like the shifting shadows." --- James 1:13, 16, 17

    A saying from my past youthful experiences:

    When the sh*t hits the fan, it's best to be in another room.


    Best,
    Scott

    PS. Deny everything, take in all that you can and give up nothing!
