Homespun wisdom

There is a thread over on the Studie forum about old sayings and such. Here is my favorite out of them:

Some people make things happen.
Some people watch things happen.
Some people wonder what happened.

Crow tastes better warm.


Lead, follow, or get the hell out of the way.

Experience. It's what you get 5 minutes after you needed it.
