Here are a few...

Failing to plan is planning to fail.

I've taught you everything you know; I haven't taught you everything I know.

Chance favors the prepared mind.

The Golden Rule:  Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Alternative Golden Rule:  He who has the gold makes the rules!

Measure twice, cut once!

From my grandfather: "It's hell to grow old."   I always replied, "But it beats the alternative!"  Glad he stayed with us as long as he did! (1901-1991)

If you don't ask, you don't get.

USE to be my mantra;

I often say that when you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind; it may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have scarcely, in your thoughts, advanced to the stage of science, whatever the matter may be.” (Thomson Citation1889).  ie Lord Kelvin

Funny thing about common sense - its not that common.

You can't deviate unless you have a plan.

Responsibility is a unique concept... You may share it with others, but your portion is not diminished. You may delegate it, but it is still with you... If responsibility is rightfully yours, no evasion, or ignorance or passing the blame can shift the burden to someone else. Unless you can point your finger at the man who is responsible when something goes wrong, then you have never had anyone really responsible. Admiral Hyman G. Rickover. Father of the Nuclear Navy

“I must be willing to give up what I am in order to become what I will be.”

Albert Einstein

“If I want your opinion, I’ll give it to you.”

"Judge Not, Least Thee be Judged"

"Before You Accuse Me, Take a Look at Yourself!"

"Even a Broken Clock, is Correct Twice a Day!"

...Up at the Blackhawk Farms Raceway, in South Beloit, Illinois, it was 1971. I was there watching a friend race his Lotus. They run the Small Engine Race Cars First. When they brought out the Big-Blocks and Prototypes, for Their Last Race, I heard over the Loud Speakers...

"Ladies and Gentlemen, It's Time to Knock the Due Off the Lilies! Gentlemen, Start Your Engines!" Great LOUD Roaring!!.

"The Safest Driver on the Highways, is Never 'Seen'!"

"Officer, I'am Not Driving Fast, I'am Flying Low!"

A comment from a Champion Roadrace Driver. "You'll Know You're Not doing very well, when all 4 Tires Are Not Off the Ground, All of the Time!!"

"I Thought You Said, We Were Done Doing Things The 'Stupid Way'!!"

"It Is The Hour of the CAT!"

"You have Engaged My Valuble Services!"

I just found this one yesterday, inside the first cover pages of the book Airframe (1996), by Michael Crichton, which seems to RING EVEN MORE SO TRUE today, some 30 years later :

"The irony of the Information Age is that it has given new respectability to uninformed opinion,"

Veteran reporter John Lawton, 68, speaking to the American Association of Broadcast Journalists in 1995.

WE CERTAINLY DO NOT HEAR THIS OFTEN ENOUGH!!!  To think I worked so hard to make this reality happen...... (Cable TV fiberoptic distribution systems......and TiVo's!   Ugh.)
