- The grass is always greener when you leave the sprinkler on.
- A rolling stone plays the guitar.

- The grass is always greener when you remember to water it.

- Never put off 'til tomorrow what you should have done yesterday.
- A penny saved is nothing in the real world.

- The squeaking wheel gets annoying.

- To err is human. To eat a muskrat is not.
- I think, therefore I get a headache.
- Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cry, and someone yells, "Shut up!"
- Better to light a candle than to light an explosive.
