Old Sayings that should be brought back...

1.  Spare the rod, spoil the child - If a child does not realize that there are consequences for their actions, they will grow up to be spoiled adults that have no respect for authority.

2. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you (Bible) - treat others with respect and kindness no matter their race or religion.  The world is an inhumane place today because many do NOT follow this simple guideline.

3.When one door closes, another opens - life is about seeing opportunities and taking them when the time is right.  At times when it seems that all is lost, something appears that gives you a new chance.

4. What goes around, comes around (Karma) - if you are positive, positive things will come your way, and vice versa.  Be careful of who you hurt, it could come back on you tenfold.

5. There are only two things for certain in this world, death and taxes.  The first you can do nothing about except possibly extend it through good/healthy living.  The second can be delayed, reduced or even evaded (legally, of course).

6. Nothing ventured, nothing gained - don't just talk about things you would like to change, do it.

7. Silence shows you agree - if you see an injustice and are silent, you are agreeing and supporting that injustice.

8. Aggression unchallenged is aggression unleashed - if you do NOT fight against an aggressor, they will become more aggressive.

9. Beware of your anxiety to avoid war, you may obtain a master - being afraid to stand up for your values could soon have you living by someone else's values.

10. Absence makes the heart grow fonder - this is so true in many romantic situations of true love.  It can work the opposite way if the romance has died.

11. If all men were just, there would be no need for valor - when a justice system does not treat all equally, the valiant are needed to repair it.

12. Variety is the spice of life - whether you are talking about food, travel, etc. this can be the thing that makes your life interesting.

13. What power has law where only money rules - money in control of society creates a system that is perverse, not honorable.

14. If knowledge does not guide our actions, it is dead - knowledge is useless if not used.
