Crisis management principles:
- Good judgement comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgement.
- Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier 'n puttin' it back.

If you're ridin' ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it's still there.
- If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around.
- Never ask a man the size of his spread. (and I don't recommend askin a lady the same question.)

- When you're throwin' your weight around, be ready to have it thrown around by somebody else.
- Always take a good look at what you're about to eat. It's not so important to know what it is, but it's you might need to know what it was.
- The quickest way to double your money is to fold it over and put it back in your pocket.
- Never miss a good chance to shut up.
