That works well for the relatives you want coming over but what about the siblings and their kids who come too often, stay for way too many days and commandeers your house for the entire stay?

Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

It's OK to let your children see you cry.

Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

If something goes wrong, look around you. The solution may be closer than you think.

I believe that if anything is worth doing, it would have been done already.

I shall never move quickly, except to avoid more work or find excuses.

I firmly believe that tomorrow holds the possibility for new technologies, astounding discoveries, and a reprieve from my obligations.

If at first I don't succeed, there is always next year.

I shall always decide not to decide, unless of course I decide to change my mind.

I will never put off until tomorrow, what I can forget about forever.

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day.

Teach him to use the Internet, and he won't bother you for weeks!
