Uncle Dan Rides Again
Real men aren't afraid of affection
Real women aren't afraid of sex
Never give a crazy man a gun
just because he asks for it;
don't tell the truth if it will be used to murder someone.
If you want to be beautiful
learn to smile.
It is not enough to be right
especially if you use it against others:
then it is a wrong.
Remember your children
are smarter than you
till they become teens;
then not so much
Be nice to people
it don't cost nothing.
Growing up is about
more than just getting taller
You can have anything you want in the world
if you are willing to let others have what they want too.
Always give credit to others more than yourself
even if this is not true.
The most important phrase in the world is
'I am not sure. Let's go find out.'
You can get any woman to fall in love with you
if you really love women. If you don't like women
the woman you end up with will return the favor.
You can get a man to fall in love with you
if you are willing to like him.
Gossip is the refuge
of those who lack any skills
If you are willing to shut up just some of the time
you'll get smarter
Don't spend your life protecting
what didn't deserve protecting in the first place
It is hard to find a good woman
so get a hard woman to help you look
Women want a man who understands
what women want without having to be told.
A man wants a woman who gives him what
he wants without asking
You can't find your princess
without being a prince yourself
Don't wait until you are on your death bed
to tell people you are sorry
Don't wait until mom or dad is on their death bed
before you tell them you love them.
Act like a loving person
and soon you don't have to act no more
Beginning things is easy
ending things is the hard part.
Being happy only comes to the happy being.
Happy being is the willingness to be without demands.
