    Ok, I did my homework and searched before starting this thread. I found pinball quotes and movie quotes but no day to day quotes you hear in passing. I'll kick it off and start with a few I got from bosses when I was young. I know these are probably borrowed from someone so you they may not be unique or may be a variation of a similar quote.

    " Buy it for a dollar, sell it for three, and live on 2%"

    "We'd like to pay you more, but there are minimum wage laws".

    " With hope in one hand and fifty cents in the other you can get a cup of coffee"

    I know that last one is stolen from somewhere but not sure where.

    When asked
    "what time is it?"

    Due to the fallacious nature of my chronometer, and the inability of my cerebrum to function in the manner of an august Chief Petty Officer, I am unable to ascertain the correct Military time to a punctilious degree; however, it is my firm belief that the approximate military time is _______ hours.

    When asked..
    "How long have you been in the Navy?"

    All me bloomin' life, Chief! Me mudder was a mermaid, me fodder was King Neptune. I was born on the crest of a wave, and rocked in the cradle of the deep. Barnacles and kelp is me clothes. Seaweed is me hair. Every tooth in me head is a marlin spike. Every bone in me body is a spar. When I spits, I spits tar. I am tough, I is, I am, I are.

    My brother moved into a new house and met his neighbor, who turned out being kind of an idiot (according to my brother).

    My brother's comment, "I could tell after visiting with him for 5 minutes, we're never going fishing together."

    Was at a truck stop in Eastern Pennsylvania years ago when I was a kid, having to stop because of all the chocolate milk I drank( unbeknownst to me, I was lactose intolerant, but thats a story for another time ), while in the stall these great words of wisdom were etched in the formica walls, and I quote.....

    I learned this in my “just got into the workforce” days. It’s kind of a spin on Murphy’s Law:

    “It’s the 50:50:80 rule....if you’ve got a 50:50 chance, you’ll get it wrong 80% of the time”

    The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all.

    "Old man yelling at the clouds" is nothing new in human history:

    "The world is passing through troublous times. The young people of today think of nothing but themselves. They have no reverence for parents or old age. They are impatient of all restraint. They talk as if they knew everything, and what passes for wisdom with us is foolishness with them. As for the girls, they are forward, immodest and unladylike in speech, behavior and dress."
    (From a sermon preached by Peter the Hermit in 1274)

    "They [Young People] have exalted notions, because they have not been humbled by life or learned its necessary limitations; moreover, their hopeful disposition makes them think themselves equal to great things -- and that means having exalted notions. They would always rather do noble deeds than useful ones: Their lives are regulated more by moral feeling than by reasoning -- all their mistakes are in the direction of doing things excessively and vehemently. They overdo everything -- they love too much, hate too much, and the same with everything else."
    (Aristotle, circa 350 B.C.E.)

    "The children now love luxury; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are tyrants, not servants of the households. They no longer rise when their elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize over their teachers."
    (Socrates, circa 430 B.C.E.)

    "I see no hope for the future of our people if they are dependent on frivolous youth of today, for certainly all youth are reckless beyond words... When I was young, we were taught to be discreet and respectful of elders, but the present youth are exceedingly wise [disrespectful] and impatient of restraint".
    (Hesiod, circa 800 B.C.E.)
