Words

1 - If you're going to say something and then say something else, and in between the two you plan to say "that having been said," you should choose which of the two things you really want to say and just say that one.


2 - Someone who says "I hate to say I told you so" probably loves to say "I told you so."


3 - Even though emotionally when we only get some of what we need it can feel like none; but truly there's a big difference between some and none. Some can be a heck of a lot.


4 - You never know, except when you do


5 - If not for my friends and family, I wouldn't know anyone.

6 - If you can get through life you can get through anything.

7 - Just saying can be horribly irresponsible, like just shooting.

8 - What is man if he is not a mentsch?

9 - Certain cliches are also true, like - "they are just jealous."

10 - Act kindly to others - including yourself - every day.
