16. If at first you don't succeed, then parachuting is definitely not for you.

 

Incidentally, I've wangled my way out of jury service on the 3 occasions when my name has come up!

Before you criticise another man you should first walk a mile in his shoes. Then, when you criticise him, you'll be a mile away and he won't have any shoes on.

 

Don't get me confused with somebody knowledgeable by all those green blobs. I got most of them by making people laugh.

 

I am not European, I am English.

17 Left to themselves, things tend to go from bad to worse.

 

18 An item will be damaged in direct proportion to its value.

 

19 The chance of the bread falling with the buttered side down is directly proportional to the cost of the carpet.

 

20 The buddy system is essential to your survival; it gives the enemy somebody else to shoot at.

 

21 Technology is dominated by those who manage what they do not understand.

 

22 Tell a man there are 300 billion stars in the universe and he'll believe you. Tell him a bench has wet paint on it and he'll have to touch to be sure.

 

23 The first myth of management is that it exists.
