As long as I can remember my Mom and Dad and Granny would read to me. They instilled in me a need to know. A thirst for Knowledge that has never stopped.
With that in mind, I am going to post some quotes and sayings that made me think.

One of the first chefs I worked for always used to say:-
"You know what they say son, when youve had a poop you wipe your butt. Clear down as you go!
His language was stronger.
