Universal Truths


I came across these “truths” back in1997. I think that they are still true.

  1. If at first you don’t succeed, destroy all the evidence that you ever tried.
  2. A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking.
  3. He who hesitates is probably right.
  4. No one is listening; that is, until you make a mistake.
  5. Success always occurs in private; failure is in full view.
  6. The colder the X-ray table, the longer you will be required to lie on it.
  7. To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is research. (I posted something similar back in 2008- “Interesting tidbits of sports trivia”)
  8. To succeed in politics, it is often necessary to rise above your principles.
  9. Monday is an awful way to spend 1/7 of your life.
  10. The light at the end of the tunnel is usually caused by the headlight of an approaching train.

The site where I got these doesn’t appear to be “there” anymore so I guess it is safe to put these up.
