I used to teach freshman English at a state university. On the first day we'd spend about 15 minutes going over the course outline, etc. At the end of that discussion I'd ask for questions and make the following statment, "Remember, there are no stupid questions... Only stupid people who ask questions." The general reaction (from stunned silence to nervous laughter) I got gave me a pretty good indication of how much work the semester would be.
Since then, I've learned to generalize the statement to, "There are no [adjective] [noun]... Only [adjective] people who [verb] [noun]." There are no fabulous tandem rides... Only fabulous people who ride tandems!
