@Harvey: "One mistake will never kill you. The same mistake over and over again will."

They say that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger ... what they don't say is that it almost killed you LOL

"Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't own it, but you can use it. You can't keep it, but you can spend it. Once you've lost it you can never get it back."

"Find something you love to do and you'll never have to work a day in your life."

"It doesn't matter how much milk you spill as long as you don't lose the cow."

"One mistake will never kill you. The same mistake over and over again will."

- Harvey Mackay

I like this version.

You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink but if you can get it do the backstroke you really got something.

If it's true that we learn from our mistakes, then I must be learning a lot.

@Elizabeth: I wasn't the one who came up with the quote you atributed to me. It was Sheepdoll that said that...

Dang -- my bad -- my appologies to both of you (said Max, appologetically)

It's a good quote though

I realize that it's confusing having two females on this board with similar looking profile photos... And similar backgrounds as well - it seems that we were both living and working in the same area at the same time.

The Turing test

One saying that comes to mind is one that was used to try to trip up a computer in a Turing test.  The saying is "Time flies like an arrow.  Fruit flies like a banana".  The object is to see if the computer finds the humor in the double entendre.

Then there's "Two wrongs don't make a right but three lefts do".
