      Great one.
      I wish I had my own storage space in my brain for these. They could be so humbling and helpful.
      They are like jokes, I forget them 90% of them or more.

      Well, that is true. But there is also a more direct route.

      If you wish your merit to be known, acknowledge that of other people.

      Sure....I&#39;ve been trying to create proverbs....I found one at some point, it went: "a good proverb doesn&#39;t invite you to think, it makes you think"

      Anyway, here&#39;s one I remember (dunno who said it): "the wise man doesn&#39;t say what he knows, whereas the fool doesn&#39;t know what he&#39;s saying."

      Well this isn&#39;t really a proverb but I think it&#39;s good anyway:

      Give me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I cannot accept, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those I had to kill because they pissed me off.

      Here are two of my personal life collection - can&#39;t cite either of them though.

      "This too shall pass."

      and

      "A ship in a harbor is safe... but that isn&#39;t what ships are made for."

      Ooh - and another uncited favorite that my kids have heard enough to recite back at me:

      There are two kinds of people in this world; those who can be told the stove is hot, and those who need to smell burning flesh.

      Below are a few that I like.. tho I don&#39;t know where they originated:

      "You never get a SECOND chance to make a good FIRST impression."

      "One nice thing about egotists.. they don&#39;t talk about other people."

      and my favorite:

      "One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor.."
