Hi! Joyce, Arcturus and Matt.

You've picked the best ones, but not all. I like these;

1...The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it. (And I'm no Chinaman)
-Chinese Proverb 

2...I have noticed that nothing I never said ever did me any harm.
-Calvin Coolidge

3...None are so empty as those who are full of themselves.
-Andrew Jackson

4...If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?
-Abraham Lincoln

I'll not be greedy, I'll leave some for someone else.

God bless

Love in Christ Jesus.

Great quotes: A few of these I did not understand.
1. What a mother sings to the cradle goes all the way down to the coffin. Henry Ward Beecher.
2. It is not necessary for an eagle to be a crow. Sitting Bull.
3. A man who carries a cat by the tail learns something he can learn by no other way. Mark Twain.

These I love.
1. None are so empty as those who are full of themselves.
    Andrew Jackson.
2. I have notice that nothing I never said ever did me any harm.
Calvin Coolidge.
3. I have notice that nothing I never said ever came back and bit me on my butt. by Darren :D ;D ;) :)

                                                Thanx Darren

1. What a mother sings to the cradle goes all the way down to the coffin. Henry Ward Beecher.
I think this means that parents should, from the begining, be cautious as to what they teach their children Good and bad for the rest of their lives
2. It is not necessary for an eagle to be a crow. Sitting Bull
This is probably a reference to the Crow Indians, though I am not positive.  I know his first coup (kill) was a Crow Indian.  He received a traditional eagle feather for doing this, but I do not fully understand the wit in this saying.
3. A man who carries a cat by the tail learns something he can learn by no other way. Mark Twain.
To me, this means that we should pay attention and learn from our experiences

Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened. -- Winston Churchill (1874-1965)
