Everything I learned in the past 60 years

Sam Smith, 1997

From G. K. Chesterton: Journalism consists largely in saying “Lord Jones died” to people who never knew that Lord Jones was alive.

From Mae West: When faced with a choice of two evils, always pick the one you haven’t tried before.

From Nelson Algren: Never play cards with a man named Doc. Never eat at a place called Mom’s.

From Mark Twain: Habit is habit, and not to be flung out of the window, but coaxed down the stairs one step at a time.

From Woody Allen: 80% of success is showing up.

From a southern farmer: Trust everyone but get cash for your cotton.

From Jerry ‘Bama’ Washington: It’s easier to tell the truth than to lie, ’cause then you don’t have to remember what you said.

From Satchell Paige: Never look back. Someone might be gaining on you.

From GB Shaw: The reasonable man adapts himself to the world. The unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
