A cub and a proxy bear and the old world

I was just with my friend Kevin in the old world for a few days. We have not seen each other in a very long time and we finally spent some quality time together and swapped a bunch of stories.

Here are some of pearls from this weekend gone by :

I used to spend my money on things; on furniture and stuff, that burglars steal when they break into my house. Now I spend my money on things like experiences; those can never be stolen or taken away from me.

It's easy getting in, but it's not that easy getting out. Sign, and you are in. Getting out though requires way more than just a signature.

When a guy comes to me with an opportunity to make money it also is an opportunity to lose money. The roads to bankruptcy are paved with opportunities.

Experience is what you get when you don't get what you want.

A woman can forgive and forget but she never forgets what she forgives.

A man owes his fortune to his first wife, and his second wife to his fortune.

In life you may be separated by 200 million but in death only a few meters.

Children are born with perfect knowledge and then we educate them.

Do you know why the man breaks the glass at a Jewish wedding? Because it is the last time he will ever get to put his foot down.
