Family Sayings and Wisdom

Don't get blood on the carpet. ( Like Sun Tsu, be aware of your terrain. Be aware of the possibility of collateral damage and avoid it. Don't escalate if unwarranted. Learn basic first aid)

Is this the hill you want to die on?

Don't ascribe to malice what can be explained by ignorance ( or incompetence ).

Life is good, considering your options. (AKA Green side of the grass, it's a good day!)

Don't let school interfere with your education.

Don't do stupid, stupid hurts.

Man up like Grandma ( AKA getting old is not for sissies )

The key to happiness is low expectations (AKA Strive for adequacy. Also, don't rely on things working perfectly for your plans to succeed. Learned from computer programming, you should build in some fault tolerance, where you can get an unexpected error or condition and continue functioning )

You can pretend to care, but you can't pretend to show up. (George L. Bell, 1927-2007)

Aren't you glad life isn't fair? If it was, every bad thing that happened to you, you'd deserve!

Poor planning on your part doesn't constitute an emergency on my part.

Blood, fire, or flood? (Said by mom when a kid would try to interrupt her on a call. if not, don't interrupt. Started as just blood or fire until the unfortunate toilet overflow incident).

Keep your clothes and weapons where you can find them in the dark ( Robert A Heinlein, Time Enough for Love).

Never sit with your back to a door ( Frank Herbert, Dune ).

If you're gonna be stupid, you better be tough.

I have staff for that (don't do it all yourself, train your replacement/the next generation).
