What is a slogan that has influenced you?

"Where's the beef?" Though the commercial is about hamburgers, I have used it to closely look at the actions and deeds of others and not just hear slick sales pitches.

"Toffo. A man's gotta chew what a man's gotta chew."
It encouraged me to eat as much Toffo as I could.

"Like a Rock..."

Gawd I got so SICK of that commercial! Not that it was bad, but because it was played so often. Ruined that Bob Seger album for me.



Mr. Lahey: A lot of people, don’t know how to drink. They drink against the grain of the liquor. And when you drink against the grain of the liquor? You lose.

Posted on the wall of my very first engineering lab in college:

“If you can’t find the time to do it right, how will you find the time to do it again?”

See my sig for the other one.



It is what it is.

Everyone needs to believe in something. I believe I'll have another beer.

"Where's the beef?"


Famously co-opted by politicians in the 1984 Democratic debates.

From my Boy Scout days, long ago:
"Be Prepared"

I think I've internalized this throughout my life to mean "assume things are going to go wrong, and have a contingency plan for when they do", and has probably saved me from worse trouble an untold number of times over the decades.

"Measure twice, cut once" — a good reminder that there's not an undo command in life, usually.

And I wish I could point to more times where this one applied to me: "Think Different".

Murphy was an optimist.

That "measure twice, cut once" saying above is one that I use constantly.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

I've always heard it and repeated it often as: "How come there's never enough time to do it right, but always enough time to do it over?"
