i did not listen to him exactly, but I did save 50% of my income always.

Derived from this:
Never buy a boat unless you are retired. Let's sail others boat.
I'm glad I didn't take this advice. I'm 35 and sailing. If I got hit by a truck tomorrow, I would have one less regret.

Have fun. If you're not grinning, fiddle around with stuff until you are.

Don't wait till you are retired to do any thing and spend what you make.

Barnacles grow quickly where there is no bottom paint. The other reason to not run aground.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
