Yes, a.n.other shameless attempt to get some chatter started this morning ... Some things my parents said have definitely stayed with me and (mostly) made some sense to me over the years. Here are a few I have remembered:-
On losing weight:
"Breakfast like a king, dine like a prince, supper like a pauper."
On household cleanliness:
'Everyone has to eat a peck of dirt before they die.'
And on social relations:
"If that person is being high and mighty with you, just imagine them sitting on the toilet ... it's a great leveller."
What words of wisdom - or silliness - have stayed with you over the years?
Ageism - what are we?
Books - ruin with one letter
Birthday - was it ignored?
