The lazy man works the hardest because he has to do it over again.

Stupidity should be painful, and often it is.

And my favorite one for the work world that refers to those folks that make me go bonkers at meetings........"Paralysm by Analysm".

Two of my favorites...

"An airplane has the potential to kill you in a very messy manner. Sit up straight and pay attention."

"Caution is advised."

I worked with an engineer who always quoted that in the opposite, he said "If you want something done right, give the job to a lazy man. He doesn't want to do it twice."

This one from Jan Colmer aerobatic performer.

"In airshow aerobatics there are 2 rules:
Rule #1...aim at the ground.
Rule #2...miss the ground."

It's hard to soar like an eagle when you work with turkeys

If you think you can or you think you can't, either way you're right.

You never know how high a mountain is until you've climbed it and only then can you appreciate how low it is.

Some days you're the dog, some you're the hydrant

There will be several of these with differing numbers....
Mine goes: "90% completed...10% done."
