   To be a good liar a man needs a real good memory.

   Vegetarian - Old Indian word meaning poor hunter/fisherman.

   Local election coming up to reduce voter fraud - I tell everyone go vote early and often in support of it.

This is not an "old saying" because it just came to my mind as I was reading a reply in another topic:   :-\

The most important part of communicating is listening. 

Or I could have said:

If you think that you know everything now, you will later when you finish making mistakes.

   On a similar vein - Those people who think they know everything greatly annoy those of us who do.
