Never argue with an Idiot: plus other advice to follow throughout life

I heard a great saying today ‘Never argue with an Idiot – he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience’.

There’s a good post over at www.newagethinker.com/2011/03/never-argue-with-an-idiot which goes into more detail about a similar Mark Twain quote ‘Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference’.

It got me thinking about what other top proverbs, mantras and advice everyone should follow throughout life.

Some which I live by are:

  • There are two sides to every coin.
  • Keep your head when all others are losing theirs.
  • Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future – concentrate the mind on the present moment.
  • Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names.

Which one’s do you live by?

      Very similar to ‘I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn’t work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness’!
