A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.
If you could kick the person in the pants responsible for most of your trouble, you wouldn't sit for a month.
The human body has two ends on it: one to create with and one to sit on. Sometimes people get their ends reversed. When this happens they need a kick in the seat of the pants.
Dreams will get you nowhere, a good kick in the pants will take you a long way.
If you make a fool of yourself, you can do it with dignity, without taking your pants down. And if you do take your pants down, you can still do it with dignity.
