Some people talk because they have something to say,
Others talk until they have something to say.

You can walk under a snake with out ducking.

We interrupt this thread to clarify a few forum rules. 

If you have to substitute the letters in a word with punctuation marks, the use of that insinuation is not permitted.

Let's keep it clean folks.  There are plenty of places to find crude, tasteless comments on the internet.  The Forestry Forum isn't one of them. 

Thanks for understanding.

Here are a few of my favorites

"If you never do what other men call foolish, you'll only know what foolish men know"

"Perfection is the enemy of good" - this one gets me when I try to improve something that is workable and then ruin it by trying to make it better and then wasting time fixing it.

Regarding income tax preparation, a old accountant told me long ago, "pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered"

"You catch more bees with honey than you do with vinegar", my favorite boss told me this regarding dealing with a difficult customer.

"Always take the high road"

There is a german saying that I like regarding people that make "much ado about nothing" or blows things out of proportion, goes something like "he's one that drills very small holes in very thin wood"

"Good better best, never let it rest, until the good is better and the better's best"

"A rolling stone gathers no moss"

"A bird in hand is worth two in the bush"
