A friend is someone you call to help you move.  A real friend is someone you call to help you move a body.

I first saw it in R. Heinlein's 'The Cat Who Walks Through Walls".  Don't know whether he originated it.

Shooting the messenger always helps, both as an emotional release and a way to buy time to think.

If at first you don't succeed, you're not the eldest son...

That was one of my favorite quotes from The Fifth Elephant by Terry Prachett. Grin

Here's one that's paraphrased from Doc Emmet Brown:

"If you're going to build something, you may as well do it with style!"

"It is by steam alone that I set my contraptions in motion.
It is by combustion of coal and boiling water that the engines acquire speed.
For protection, the eyes acquire goggles,
The goggles become a warning.
It is by steam alone that I set my contraptions in motion."

From the Royal Air Force

If you can walk away its a good landing

If your aircraft can be used again, its a very good landing

And from the British Army - only two things fall out of the sky, Paras (Paratroopers) and birdsh*t
