Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you

EDITED TO ADD: I'm sorry the link to the original video clip went was a popular and outrageously hilarious clip of a young cat challenging an older one. The younger kitty was standing upright on its haunches, waving its two front paws at the older cat, in a boxing motion. Suddenly the older (and very much larger) cat springs onto the unsuspecting young whippersnapper and bowls it over. The young cat didn't get hurt...just surprised as all get out. 'twas a priceless image of a valuable lesson.

I have a gazillion really important things that I need to do today, but I just can't stop thinking of quips and quotes that would make good captions for this video clip!

Losing an illusion makes you as wise as finding a truth.

A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave one dies but once.

You can't negotiate with the non-negotiable.

Don't believe everything you think.

He who angers you conquers you.

Never appeal to another's 'better nature'. He may not have one.

Facts seldom change what someone wants to believe.

Convictions are more dangerous foes of truth than lies. --Friedrich Nietzche

If you don't stay on top of things, soon you will be underneath them.

I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that it won't work. --Thomas A. Edison

Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you.
