Aphorisms, 6

  • You need to take a bull by the horns—as long as you’re a knowledgeable bull fighter
  • You're never too old to learn—that you’d be better off if you’d been learning all along
  • You can’t fix stupid in anyone but yourself
  • Straddling two boats definitely increases your risk of getting wet—unless the boats are in dry dock
  • Why is it that when a dog bites a person it’s not news, but when a person bites a dog, it is?
  • Old habits die hard
  • Once bitten, twice shy
  • Opportunity never knocks twice—typically others grasp the ones you missed or walk through the door that you ignored
  • Opposites attract
  • Out of sight, out of mind, but not necessarily out of danger
