"Your chickens will come home to roost", I believe this is from Chaucer. Meaning all your deeds will come back to you, both good and bad.

Also, my Irish husband has one I like. "No good deed goes unpunished". Don't know if that is Irish or not but funny anyway.

And one of my favorites, "When someone tells you who they really are believe them the first time." Maya Angelou (I think I spelled that right). Anyway that one is one to live by.

Jujubean-I have had my posts changed-usually for typos. Or links. Funny about the typos . Once a post of mine was all rearranged--but I had put a link in but they didn't just take the link out they kinda made my post more efficient. --whatever. It is their site, I guess. :0)

I like my dad's --' that went over like a lead fart" ---I think he meant to say "that went over like a lead balloon OR "that went over like a fart in church" but combined them. Now my husband and I say it 'his way" haha

There is also his "I know you like a glove" -said to my Mom during a heated argument years ago. (I know you like the back of my hand + fits like a glove)

We are not sure if he is doing this on purpose or just gets confused.

For my girl we often say (OFTEN!!!)--"It's different ---but that's OK." when we are doing something that is not in her normal routine. And , when we are going to run errands I say we are going on a "slow adventure" which means we do not need to rush or worry just relax and take it easy (she has anxiety) Not really quotes, per se but we say them soften that they have become kinda oour mantra. Those and --'It's in God's Hands" --for when she is worrying (OFTEN) about things we cannot control.
