                          I’ll offer a small set of the aphorisms of Robert Heinlein:
                          Your enemy is never a villain in his own eyes. (...)

                          Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.

                          You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don’t ever count on having both at once.

                          Have you noticed how much they look like orchids? Lovely!

                          Do not confuse “duty” with what other people expect of you; they are utterly different. Duty is a debt you owe yourself to fulfill obligations you have assumed voluntarily. Paying that debt can entail anything from years of patient work to instant willingness to die. Difficult it may be, but the reward is self-respect. But there is no reward at all for doing what other people expect of you, and to do so is not merely difficult, but impossible. It is easier to deal with a footpad than it is with the leech who wants “just a few minutes of your time, please--this won’t take long.” Time is your total capital, and the minutes of your life are painfully few. If you allow yourself¬ to fall into the vice of agreeing to such requests, they quickly¬ snowball to the point where these parasites will use up 100 percent of your time--and squawk for more! So learn to say No--and to be rude about it when necessary. Otherwise you will not have time to carry out your duty, or to do your own work, and certainly no time for love and happiness. The termites will nibble away your life and leave none of it for you. (This rule does not mean that you must not do a favor for a friend, or even a stranger. But let the choice be yours. Don’t do it because it is “expected” of you.)

                          Rub her feet.

                            I figured the Animal House reference made it too easy. "Double Secret Probation"' has literally become an oft-used term in the business world. Kind of scary. Within the last couple of weeks I responded to someone who was saying we should give up on a project with the old "Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?". Sadly, the younger people in the room totally missed the reference.

                              OOOO too many to post. But my absolute favorite is Shakespeare's Polonius' advice to Laertes, particularly the final piece of advice in the speech. A father's advice to his son how to conduct himself in the world:

                              "Give thy thoughts no tongue, nor any unproportion'd thought his act.

                              Be thou familiar, but by no means vulgar;

                              The friends thou hast, and their adoption tried, grapple them to thy soul with hoops of steel; but do not dull thy palm with entertainment of each new-hatch'd, unfledg'd comrade.

                              Beware of entrance to a quarrel, but, being in, bear 't that th' opposed may beware of thee.

                              Give every man thine ear, but few thy voice;

                              Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgment.

                              Costly thy habit as thy purse can buy, but not express'd in fancy; rich, not gaudy; For the apparel oft proclaims the man.

                              Neither a borrower, nor a lender be; For loan oft loses both itself and friend, and borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry.

                              This above all: to thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man."

                              Translation for any who (understandably) may have difficulty with Shakespearean English.

                              "Don't tell all you think, or put into action thoughts out of harmony or proportion with the occasion. Be friendly, but not common; don't dull your palm by effusively shaking hands with every chance newcomer. Avoid quarrels if you can, but if they are forced on you, give a good account of yourself. Hear every man's censure (opinion), but express your own ideas to few. Dress well, but not ostentatiously. Neither borrow nor lend. And guarantee yourself against being false to others by setting up the high moral principle of being true to yourself."
                              Jack
