10 things I have learned from living a long time.

The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing in the right place, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment

If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.

Good judgment comes from bad experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Always remember you're unique. Just like everyone else.

Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognize a mistake when you've just made it again.

Never argue with an idiot. The people watching might not know the difference.

If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you've never tried before.

Nothing is foolproof.............to a sufficiently talented fool.

"A proverb is a short sentence based on long experience."


So yeah it's all good stuff what you've learnt but, really, your '10 things I have learned from living a long time' sound more like '10 quotes I read somewhere that are kinda clever'.


So come back, and tell us what *you* learnt from life, not what you read, eh!

(Thwack! Yep, that's the sound of a gauntlet being thrown down (clumsily) onto the floor! ;-) )
