As for No. 6 ~ 'If you don't ask the right question, every answer seems wrong.'
In a way, I guess the say this at least, a couple of times a week.
My quote is: If you don't ask, you don't get.

As for No. 1 ~ 'Stop wearing your wishbone where your backbone ought to be.'
Now, this is my absolute favorite.

Surely, I'm not alone, in knowing toooooo many people, who are incapable of carrying on a perfectly legitimate conversation, FACE-TO-FACE. This social networking business is making imbeciles/fools out of the lot of us.
The generations being raised in this manner, have few manners, and have no idea how to conduct themselves in most situations.
The truth is, THEY ARE BEING SHORT-CHANGED!
