Sayings and Proverbs

Here are some of my favorite sayings and proverbs, gathered over the course of many years. Some are mine, most are not. The latter are especially to be noted, having been tested by the cruelest yet fairest critic of them all: time.

"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."

"Most of us spend our lives in Plan B."
