Never say never, unless it’s a Never-ism!

Never underestimate “neverisms” as they can be quite powerful, really funny and at times possessing condensed wisdom.  They are like a bowl of pretzels – each morsel is tasty, and you can nibble as many or as few as you wish, one at a time or by the handful.

  • Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.
  • Never waste a minute thinking about people you don’t like.
  • Never claim as a right what you can ask as a favor.
  • Never use a long word where a short one will do.
  • Never go to a doctor whose office plants have died.
  • Never trust a skinny ice cream man. (Remember this next time you are at Ben & Jerry’s ice cream parlor)
  • Never put anybody on hold.
  • Never, never, never give up.
  • Never let a fool kiss you or a kiss fool you.
  • Never test the depth of the water with both feet.
  • Never try to teach a pig to sing. It wastes your time and annoys the pig.
  • Never lose yourself when you find another person.
  • Never practice two vices at once.
  • Never apologize before you are accused.
  • Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option
  • Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.
  • Never give advice unasked.
  • Never tell a young person that something cannot be done.
  • Never invest in any idea you can’t illustrate with a crayon.
  • Never mistake a  single mistake with a final mistake.
  • Never pick up what you didn’t put down.
  • Never spend time with people who don’t respect you.
  • Never take anything for granted.
  • Never reveal the bottom of your purse or the depth of your mind.
  • Never work for anyone more insecure than yourself.
  • Never turn down a job because you think it’s too small; you don’t know where it can lead.
  • Never trouble trouble ’til trouble troubles you.
  • Never miss a good chance to shut up.

P.S. Never miss a chance of liking this post if you feel like ‘liking’ it 😉
