Things My Daddy Used To Say is a collection of
aphorisms that comment on the philosophy and the morality that were prevalent
in the heartland of America in the mid-twentieth century. Over 2,500 astute observations on the human
condition, arranged in fifty-eight categories from Admiration to Worry, offer
both a nostalgic look at a bygone era and a rich source of timeless humor. A
few excerpts from the book are given below.
On being a man: “Fix is
something a man is supposed to do, not get himself into.” On government: “Passing legislation is like passing gas –
the quieter you are about it, the easier it is to blame it on somebody
else.” On management: “Memos are like women’s bathing suits –
their purpose is to cover up just enough so that nobody gets too excited.” On people: No man is an island, but I have met a few who were atolls.” On women: “The Trojan War is the only one I ever heard of that was fought
over something worthwhile.”
