Remembering George Carlin

June 23, 2008

I was sadened to hear about the death of George Carlin this morning. He was always one of my favorite comedians and is certainly one of the greatest of all time. He always came up with witty sayings on about any topic. Feel free to add your favorites to the list.

Below are some good quotes from Carlin:

Always do whatever’s next.

Don’t sweat the petty things and don’t pet the sweaty things.

Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?

I recently went to a new doctor and noticed that he was located in something called the Professional Building. I felt better right away.

I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman, “Where’s the self-help section?” She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.

Most people work just hard enough not to get fired and get paid just enough money not to quit.

Creativity and CPAs don’t generally go together.  Most people think of CPAs as nerdy accountants who can’t talk with people.  Well, it’s time to break that stereotype.  Lively, friendly, and knowledgeable can be a part of your relationship with your CPA as demonstrated by Donna and Chad Bordeaux.  They have over 50 years of combined experience as entrepreneurial CPAs.  They’ve owned businesses and helped business owners exceed their wildest dreams.   They have been able to help businesses earn many times more profit than the average business in the same industry and are passionate about helping industries that help families build great memories.
