1- You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we observe daylight-savings time. 2- You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment. 3- The most powerful force in the universe is gossip. 4- The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status, or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above-average drivers. 5- There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age 11. 6- There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness." 7- People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them. 8- If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be "meetings." 9- The main accomplishment of almost all organized protests is to annoy people who are not in them. 10- If there really is a God who created the entire universe with all of its glories, and He decides to deliver a message to humanity, He will not use, as His messenger, a person on cable TV with a bad hairstyle. 11- You should not confuse your career with your life. 12- A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person. 13- No matter what happens, somebody will find a way to take it too seriously. 14- When trouble arises and things look bad, there is always one individual who perceives a solution and is willing to take command. Very often, that individual is crazy. 15- Your friends love you, anyway. 16- Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance. Can anyone ad any more to the list?
