  1. For a project I have been thundered with (I managed to postpone it for a few months but now...deadline new is looming)
    would you be so kind as to share with me?
    I have found one I like -
    "You can't change your past, but you can influence your future".
    (I have lots of German ones but I shall spare you them - my project is in English though as it is for all offices).

    The best revenge is a life well lived.
  6. I've just heard this on the programme about the Queen on BBC1;'Grief is the price we pay for love'
    So true.
  7. Those that care don't matter. Those that matter don't care.

    I think it's used in the context of you having messy hair or piles of **** in the living room...
  10. I prefer: those who mind don't matter; those who matter don't mind.

  11. I don't find it depressing at all.
    It simply means that you shouldn't pay attention to people who may pick at you/find fault for 'insignificant' things.

  12. I like it that way!
  13. A classic from my mother: always make sure your knickers are clean and paid for.
  14. Paid for?
    tee hee, not heard that version before!

  15. I can only assume she was anti shoplifting! Or perhaps she was advising us against accepting presents of knickers........and all that that could lead to!

    If in doubt, put the kettle on.
    From Mum
  17. Never interrupt someone doing something you said couldn't be done.
    That was Amelia Earheart. She is a bit of heroine for me. I could wax lyrical for hours quoting her.

  18. No woman ever killed a man while he was doing the dishes.
    Often quoted to Mr C.
  19. I will strive to be the wonderful person my dog already thinks I am.

    Always be a first rate version of yourself instead of a second rate version of someone else.

    Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
