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.”
