"Where ever you are... there you are."

Many folks, including my uncle Hinka. Meaning... a change of scenery isn't going to solve one's problems.

"Never use a bigger hammer than you need to do the job."

I heard it from an old African game warden. It grows on me and can be used in many situations in life.

i like both of these....never heard 'em before.

the first makes me think of living in the moment, as well as where you happen to be. the 2nd is quite good, too. it's bendable, you're right. i'm thinking of all sorts of applications.....'pick your battles,' 'measure twice, cut once' (or in my case: thrice!) but, then it also makes me realize how complications, extremes and excess can have the same effect on the human brain/body.

thanks ot!

Art is not to express one's personality, but to overcome it.
