Here is an Alaskan proverb: "Never eat yellow snow."
Yogi Berra said, "When you come to the fork in the road, take it."
Dennis Wholey wrote, "Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are good is like expecting a bull not to charge because you are a vegetarian."

A Sierra Leone proverb: "Don't tell the man carrying you that he stinks."
And a word from Chef Julia Childs: "If you use enough butter, anything is good.
