I heard this on "Oh Brother Where Art Thou" but pretty sure it has been around a lot longer than that. "You ain't no kind of man if you don't have land." Might not be quite true but having owned land free and clear a few times it sure does make the place feel a lot more like home and makes me feel a lot more grounded in more ways than one.

Dunno if that's a common one, but I remember a good ol' WW2 vet that used to say it a lot.   :D

I've heard this in reference to education these days.

You all know what B.S. is- "Bull(poop)"
I've been told that an M.S. is "More of the Same."
And  P.H.D is just "Piled Higher and Deeper."
Proper prior planning prevents pith poor performance
