***

Son, here’s the secret to women: they want to satisfy all their goals and objectives and so forth.

***

Son, go for quality, not quantity. But go for a lot of it.

***

Son, if you’re in debt, that’s because you spend more than you earn. You should spend less. Or earn more. Or you could do both, Son.

***

Son, complaining never solves anything.  Except when someone responds to your complaint with a solution. If you’re in one of those situations, complain.

***

Son, the farther away something is, the smaller it looks. Eventually, you can’t see it at all, Son.

***

Son, the richest person may not always be the happiest person. They could also be the second happiest, or third happiest, or fourth happiest… Do you see where I’m going with this?
