Lessons in Logic

If your father is a poor man,
it is your fate but,
if your father-in-law is a poor man,
it's your stupidity.

........................................................................

I was born intelligent -
education ruined me.

........................................................................


Practice makes perfect.....
But nobody's perfect......
so why practice?

........................................................................


If it's true that we are here to help others,
then what exactly are the others here for?

........................................................................


Since light travels faster than sound,
people appear bright until you hear them speak.

........................................................................


How come "abbreviated" is such a long word?

........................................................................


Money is not everything.
There's Mastercard & Visa.

........................................................................


One should love animals.
They are so tasty.

........................................................................


Behind every successful man, there is a woman
And behind every unsuccessful man, there are two.

........................................................................


Every man should marry.
After all, happiness is not the only thing in
life.

........................................................................


The wise never marry.
and when they marry they become otherwise.

........................................................................


Success is a relative term.
It brings so many relatives.

........................................................................


Never put off the work till tomorrow
what you can put off today.

........................................................................


"Your future depends on your dreams"
So go to sleep

........................................................................


There should be a better way to start a day
Than waking up every morning

........................................................................


"Hard work never killed anybody"
But why take the risk

........................................................................


"Work fascinates me"
I can look at it for hours

........................................................................


God made relatives;
Thank God we can choose our friends.

........................................................................


The more you learn, the more you know,
The more you know, the more you forget
The more you forget, the less you know
So.. why learn.


........................................................................

A bus station is where a bus stops.

A train station is where a train stops.

On my desk, I have a work station....
what more can I say........

Lessons In Project Management

It takes one woman nine months to have a baby. It cannot be done in one month by impregnating nine women.

Nothing is impossible for the person who doesn't have to do it.

You can con a sucker into committing to an impossible deadline, but you cannot con him into meeting it.

At the heart of every large project is a small project trying to get out.

The more desperate the situation the more optimistic the situatee.

A problem shared is a buck passed.

A change freeze is like the abominable snowman: it is a myth and would anyway melt when heat is applied.

A user will tell you anything you ask, but nothing more.

Of several possible interpretations of a communication, the least
convenient is the correct one.

What you don't know hurts you

There's never enough time to do it right first time but there's always enough time to go back and do it again.

The bitterness of poor quality lasts long after the sweetness of making a date is forgotten.

I know that you believe that you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realise that what you heard is not what I meant.

What is not on paper has not been said.

A little risk management saves a lot of fan cleaning.

If you can keep your head while all about you are losing theirs, you haven't understood the plan.

If at first you don't succeed, remove all evidence you ever tried.

Feather and down are padding, changes and contingencies will be real events.

There are no good project managers - only lucky ones.

The more you plan the luckier you get.

A project is one small step for the project sponsor, one giant leap for the project manager.

Good project management is not so much knowing what to do and when, as knowing what excuses to give and when.

If everything is going exactly to plan, something somewhere is going
massively wrong.

Everyone asks for a strong project manger - when they get them they don't want them.

Overtime is a figment of the na´ve project manager's imagination.

Quantitative project management is for predicting cost and schedule overruns well in advance.

The sooner you begin coding the later you finish.

Metrics are learned men's excuses.

For a project manager overruns are as certain as death and taxes.

Some projects finish on time in spite of project management best
practices.

Fast - cheap - good - you can have any two.

There is such a thing as an unrealistic timescale.

The project would not have been started if the truth had been told about the cost and timescale.

A two-year project will take three years, a three year project will never finish.

Local Area Network in Australia : The LAN down under

He had a photographic memory which was never developed.

I wondered why the football was getting bigger. Then it hit me.

The dead batteries were given out free of charge.

A chicken crossing the road: poultry in motion.

With her marriage she got a new name and a dress.
