“Never enter a battle of wits with an unarmed man.”
“If you can’t say something nice about someone, don’t say anything at all.”
“Common sense is genius dressed in working clothes.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
“You’re long on mouth and short on ears.” (John Wayne)
“Opinions are like @$$holes. Everybody has one.”
“It’s better to be thought a fool, then to open your mouth and remove all doubt.” (Mark Twain)
“Why don’t you wish in one hand and $#$^ in the other? See which one happens first.”
“All would live long but none would be old.” (Ben Franklin)
“Few things are harder to put up with than a good example.” (Mark Twain)
Remember any from your youth? What are some of your favorites?

There’s no doubt that it’s timeless; the benefit of wise old sayings.
