I worked at a place where we often dealt with people who "weren't all there".  Coworkers would say, "she's nuttier than squirrel turds", or "he needs to be shipped off to the factory to get re-threaded."  My grandpa would point to my grandma and say,"she may be little, but she's mighty!"

Successful people have a sense of gratitude.
Unsuccessful people have a sense of entitlement.

When it relates to gossipers and busy bodies, there's a famous quote from my region & culture:
"The same dog that will bring a bone, will also tote a bone!"
"Watch them dogs!"  :-X

Dad spoke that one as well. I was strongly corrected when as we were gathering around the supper table he quietly removed my plate and just left my spot empty. Everyone at the table understood and no one including me said anything. My motivation was renewed for the next day!!

Not sure where to put this, so I'm posting here.  If it needs to be somewhere else, Admins please move as you see fit.  Nothing obscene or political here but I think some readers might consider this about "old" people (thus under old sayings):

People born in the 40’s have lived
in eight decades,
two centuries
and two millenniums

We had the best music,
the fastest cars, root beer malts,
drive-in theaters, and happy days!
