"I don't have to attend every argument I'm invited to."
"I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure."
"Money will not buy happiness. But it will let you be unhappy in nice places."
"I cook with wine. Sometimes I even add it to the food."
"It ain't what they call you. It's what you answer to."
"Start every day off with a smile and get it over with."
"Some people are born losers. Others acquire the knack gradually."
"Scotch needs water like a fish needs a bicycle."
"A rich man is nothing but a poor man with money."
