He who does not smoke
Hath either known no great grief or
Refuseth the softest consolation
Next to that which comes from Heaven

Hufen Tew
Double cream
Go to mottoes G or H

I always have a drink at eleven,
It`s a duty that has to be done,
If I can`t have one at eleven,
I have eleven at one

I cum from Tarkay
Where do yu cum from?

I have several good reasons for drinking
And one has just entered my head
If a man cannot drink while he's living
How the hell can he drink when he's dead

I improve everything

I kum vrum Exmuth
Where do you kum vrum

I like zyder Zyder likes me I'll drink Zyder as long as I can

I luve zyder
Zyder likes me
I'll drink zyder
As long as I can zee

I slept and dreamt that life was beauty
I woke and found that life was duty

I was not made for you to fry bacon fish or ham
Use me for whichever you please Butter cheese or jam

I watched the potter thumping his wet clay,
And with its all obliterated tongue it murmured,
Gently brother, Gently pray

I will not willingly offend
Nor be soon affended
What's amiss I'll strive to mend
And bear what can't be mended

I wish you all the joy that you may wish
Good wishes speed you on your way
Good luck go with you day by day

If at first you don't succeed try again

If each man in his measure,
Would do a brothers part,
To cast a ray of sunlight,
Into a brother`s heart,
How changed would be our country,
How changed would be our poor,
And then might Merry England,
Deserve her name once more

If good cheer be lacking
Our friends will be packing

If I were you my friend
I'd bring my drinking to an end

If in a crowd one day he were to find
A fellow feeling in his coat behind
A fellow feeling makes us wondrous kind
But I wonder if the Poet would change his mind

If it be so
So it is you know
And if it be so
So be it

If life an empty bubble be,
How sad for those who cannot see,
A rainbow in the bubble

If water rots your boots,
What the hell does it do to your stomach

If we cannot have what we want
We must learn to like what we have

If you can`t be aisy, be as aisy as you can

If you can`t climb - fly

If you can`t lift the stone,
Pehaps ypu can roll it

If you wish smiles and nothing more
Don't drop ashes on the floor

If you your object fain would reach,
You must believe in what you teach,
And always practise what you preach

If you`re down in the mouth, think of Jonah,
He came up alright

If you're in a hurry
Take your time

If you`re not a beauty,
Be happy that you`re plain,
Be a wheel greaser,
If you can`t drive a train

If you`re lips would keep from slips,
Five things observe with care,
Of whom you speak,
To whom you speak,
And how and when and where

If you`ve got the pip, don`t squeak

If you've got to do something
For nothing do it yourself

If yu want a cup a Tay "yer tiz"

If yu want zum butter 'yer tiz'

Ilka blade o' grass keps its ain drap a' dew

I'll hold a wager that you don't drink liquar all
Without you don't spill or let some fall

I'm not greedy but I like a lot

I'm the latest thing out, Where's Mother?

I'm useful so use me

Improve time in time while time lasts,
For all time is no time when time is past

Improvement is gained by practice

Influence is jolly useful until you`ve used it

In sweet music is such art,
Killing care and grief of heart

In the name of God the Compassionate, the merciful
May I seek a refuge with the Lord of man
From the malice of the lurking whisperer
From the genii and mankind

In trouble to be troubled
Is to have your trouble doubled

Is tha Tay tu yer liken "Ees fay"

Isn`t your life extremely flat,
With nothing whatever to grumble at

It takes two to quarrel and three to make it interesting

It`s a comely fashion to be glad,
Joy is the grace we say to God

Its a good girl
That never grumbles

Its a good horse that never stumbles
And a good man that never grumbles

Its an ill wind that nobody any good

Its better to wear out than rise to fall

It`s better to wear out than rust out

Its never tool late to mend

Its no lost what a freen gets

It's the cock that does the Crowing
But it's the Hen that delivers the goods

Its turned out nice again, George
