An aphorism is a short, pointed sentence that expresses a wise or clever observation or a general truth… like these gems:
- The nicest thing about the future is that it always starts tomorrow.
- Money will buy a fine dog but only kindness will make him wag his tail.
- If you don’t have a sense of humor you probably don’t have any sense at all.
- Seat belts are not as confining as wheelchairs.
- A good time to keep your mouth shut is when you’re in deep water.
- How come it takes so little time for a child who is afraid of the dark to become a teenager who wants to stay out all night?
- Business conventions are important because they demonstrate how many people a company can operate without.
- Why is it that at class reunions you feel younger than everyone else looks?
- Scratch a dog and you will have a permanent job.
- There are no new sins — the old ones just get more publicity.
- There are worse things than getting a call for a wrong number at 4 a.m — like, it could be the right number.
- No one ever says “It’s only a game” when their team is winning.
- I’ve reached the age where ‘happy hour’ is a nap.
- Money can’t buy happiness but somehow it’s more comfortable to cry in a Cadillac
- After 60, if you don’t wake up aching in every joint you’re probably dead.
- Always be yourself because the people that matter don’t mind – and the ones that mind don’t matter.
- Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.
