Jewish Proverbs, courtesy of my brother Peter, who lives in North Carolina (Go figure!)
If the rich could hire other people to die for them, the poor could make a wonderful living.
The wise man, even when he holds his tongue, says more than the fool when he speaks.
What you don't see with your eyes, don't invent with your mouth.
A hero is someone who can keep his mouth shut when he is right.
One old friend is better than two new ones.
One of life's greatest mysteries is how the boy who wasn't good enough to marry your daughter can be the father of the smartest grandchild in the world.
A wise man hears one word and understands two.
Golda Meir-isms: "Don't be so humble - you are not that great." "Pessimism is a luxury that a Jew can never allow himself."
Albert Einstein: "Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex. It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction." "Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving."
Woody Allen: "I don't want to become immortal through my work. I want to become immortal through not dying."
SJG family motto: "Life is life."
