    I think it's maybe an Emerson quote but so appropriate for every politician.

    "What you do shouts so loud I can't hear what you are saying."

      Jess is having a hard time with a "friend". She has two kids and he says he cant get involved with a girl with children. I texted him asking him just that. "Do you think it is simply because she has children". He texted back "I dont know". So I, wanting to be silly , texted back "What will be will be. If it was meant to be... Absence makes the heart grow fonder you know". He texted me back "That was the dumbest shit I have ever heard."

        They've also been called proverbidiums.

        Here's a new one:

        When you have your health you don't give it a second thought. When you don't have your health it's your only thought.


        Onward and upward.

          Tony Romo used this often in his after game press conference "it is what it is"

                    Minimize the faults of others, if you would have them minimize the faults in you.

                      It is not gold all that shines

                      Don't go over the creek after water

                      Behind the clouds, it is always sunny

                      Equal children play the same

                      To eat like a horse

                      One child is like none, two are like ten

                      The work enobles the man

                      When the sun goes down in west, the lazy people work best

                      I don't remember more Norwegian sayings just know

                        Some more translated:
                        • One at the time said the old lady, when the wolfs was all over her.
                        • One should be aware when it comes to small womens and small swigs.
                        • Our lord makes the day, the old lady the dinner.
                        • When happiness is at it’s best, one must pay attention the most.
                        • One egg is an egg said the lad, and took the biggest one.

                          I dont think Dogger would have minded me pinching one of his lines...it cracked me up big time when I first heard him say it.

                          " I am so unlucky.....if it was raining virgins I'd be washed down the drain with the only Poofter!"

                          ps..apologies if I have offended anyone!
