From Mom:
1. If something is the truth it is told the same way everytime it's told. A lie will change and never be told the same way twice.

2. If your gonna lie you better learn how to do it first.

3. Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it.

4. What mom doesn't know won't hurt her but there's not very much that mom doesn't know.

From Dad:
1. If more than one person knows something it's not a secret.

2. Save at least 10% of every dollar you ever earn. (I wish I could afford to do that.)
