15 Things It Took Me Over 50 Years To Learn

  • Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
  • You should not confuse your career with your life.
  • Never lick a steak knife.
  • There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age eleven.
  • The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above average drivers.
  • A person who is nice to you but rude to a waiter is not a nice person. (This is very important. Pay attention. It never fails.)
  • Your friends love you anyway.
  • Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.
  • You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests that you think she’s pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.
