Phrases you live by.

My grandfather once told me, "If you are going to be dumb, you better be tough.". The man was brilliant.

What phrase or phrases do you live by and help guide you through life?

It's the details that make the job.

When in doubt . . . take the exit.

A good indicator of future behavior is past behavior.

View any money you lend to a friend or relative as a gift.

All men are actually 13-year-old boys, they just disguise it with education and life experience.

The main difference between an amateur job and a professional job is time.

A poor craftsman blames his tools.

Expenses always rise to meet income.

Joy lies in the fight, in the attempt, in the suffering involved, not in the victory itself.

Our greatest glory consists not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.

My personal favorite...

Little minds are tamed and subdued by misfortunes; but great minds rise above them.

If you ain't cheating, you ain't trying.

Better to be lucky than good.

For a happy aviation career, do not fly at night, do not fly in the weather, and never touch the red guarded switches.

We'll do it right no matter how much it costs you.

Lower your standards until it works.

Don't chew your nails if you're working on septic.

Don't pound the pink nails.

If they wanted it to be perfect, they wouldn't want it to be made of wood.

If it jams, force it. If it breaks it was probably already cracked by someone else anyway.

The only phrase in my house is a poster that says "Boiler Up!" and I can't think of any other phrases posted around where I live.
