It does NOT take all kinds to make the world go round. There just ARE all kinds.

You can lead a man to knowledge, but you can't make him think.

Said by some supervisor, somewhere- "Having you around is like having TWO good men GONE!"

1) When I want your opinion I will give it to you!

2) Even a blind hog finds an acorn now and again.

3) My dad used to use the following saying and honestly, I do not think my dad knew what he was inferring because the saying was just not his style. For example dad would see some fine looking Lincoln or Cadillac and whistle then say, "Long as a bad girls dream" never thinking about what the phrase actually inferred.

A favorite of mine emanated from ship acquisitions: "Not enough money to build it right, and all the money in the world to fix it later."

The person that mentored me in machining used to say
"When you're up to your ass in alligators it's hard to remember you're original objective was to drain the swamp"
I had a WW2 Marine boss who kindly used that one,

Here is another one I kept hearing growing up.

If you had done it right the first time, you would have time to do other things.

Of course I smarted off and said what other chores. You can imagine what I got.

"Down to Gehenna or up to the throne, he travels the fastest who travels alone"
