"I have been trying very hard to track down the source of a proverb one of my authors sent to me, claiming it was "Native American" (but population not specified). It goes, simply "A frog does not drink up the pond in which he lives." Would be most grateful if you can tell me." Thanks Richard! If anyone knows the origin of this proverb, please let me know!

A co-worker used to have printed above her desk:
"If you have to eat a frog, don't spend a lot of time looking at it. If you have to eat more than one, eat the big one first."
I've seen this quoted on the web unattributed as well. Thanks Anthony!

"Time's fun when you're havin' flies!" Thanks Fred!

"Times fun when you're having flies!" Thanks Bruce!

"It is better to get laugh wrinkles than to get worry warts." From Hallmark plaque.

"Frogs have it made - they get to eat what bugs them." I have this on several different wooden plaques.

"Eat a frog first thing in the morning, and nothing worse will happen to you all day." I'm not sure where I saw this.
