My great uncle Mungo (he was from Glasgow) used to always say:

"The only difference between a bicycle is an apple because a snake does NOT have armpits".

A variation of that saying was recorded in the summer of 1969 by the Glaswegian band "Gurt Bucket and the Armenian Red Cross Drivers"

From my stand in Grandpa-
"One word, 'Hustle', that's it."

From my Pa-
On firearms:
What do you want with a cheap one.
Don't show it unless you use it. Don't use it unless you kill it.

Oooh I love these! Let's see if I can remember some real ones though...

    A man is incomplete until he's married - then he's finished. (Not a clue)

    A woman drove me to drink, and I never had the courtesy to thank her. (WC Fields I think)

    When your mother told you the boys don't like that kind of girl, your mother lied. (My humble self)

And I do have a real one from my Grand-Dad (RIP)

Grandpa :"Always fight fire with fire". He was chucked out of the fire brigade shortly afterwards.

Grandma (see below) : "Two swallows do not a porn movie make." I was only ten at the time so didn't have a clue what she was on about. I do now. Very Happy

My grandmother on my father's side had about nine kids by several different blokes. Quite scandalous at the time. It was rumoured she was buried in a 'Y'-shaped coffin. I wasn't able to verify that, because I was too young to attend the funeral.

Another couple from Grandpa...

"Wherever you are in the world, whatever you're doing, always make sure you've got your bus fair home"

When talking about boyfriends...

"Make sure you can leave him on a park bench"

And, I forgot this one, one my Mom had enscribed in a stone for me when I emigrated to NZ...
(Gotta do a bit of a story to this one though...)When I was a club DJ, at about 23, I got a job in Nice, South of France. My boyfriend took me to the airport and I checked in. While waiting for my flight, I had a sudden panic attack.
I rang home, expecting to speak to my Mum who's travelled the world, alot. I thought she would tell me to stop being silly and get on the plane.
Instead, my Grandpa answered.
His advice? "Well come home then duck."
So I did.
(I flew out to Nice the following day after reassurance from friends and relatives that I was in fact capable of doing the job)

My stone? It says...

"There's always 'Come home duck.'"

Not my Grandfathers sayings but I do like them.

'If you go to bed with dogs, you will wake up with fleas'

Or another I use myself often

"Where there is a will,
there is a line of people waiting for someone to die"

'There are two kinds of people: those who work and those who take the credit. Try to be in the first group; less competition there.-Grandpa and I think some politician said it as well.

Thanks for reminding me, Harry:

I believe this came from my Grandpa, although it was via my father:
"The Eleventh commandment is: Do not place they left hand before the cutting edge, or thou shalt surely get cut."

Didn't stop me getting five overlapping scars on the first finger of my left hand. Embarassed The last one only last year Embarassed Embarassed

From my "Opa"

"If two people always agree, one of them is unnecessary."

"If it's worth doing, it's worth doing well."

From my metal shop teacher who was like a grandpa:

"If you don't have time to do it right, leave enough time to do it twice."

"If you're fixing it and fixing it, it's wrong. Start over."

"It takes a wise man to play the fool"

He also told me

"You don't ever sh*t on your own doorstep"

My maternal granddad, who is still with us, has a tendency to say, "If he ain't crooked before he's elected, he will be soon after he gets into office." around every election.

The other one had a tendency to say "Look before you leap." And this is not advice, but the most hilarious and possibly most memorable thing my late paternal grandfather ever said was surely "Bertha's the eatin'est woman I've ever seen."

Bertha was my paternal grandmother, and yes, the statement was pretty accurate and, believe it or not, affectionate. My grandmother wasn't particularly heavy, but she was tall and fairly stout, and she could put away an entire pie in a single day, three apples in a sitting and used to sneak pats of butter throughout the day. Where the tall went in subsequent generations, I have no idea. I certainly didn't get left any of it in the will. The eating, I got.
