I, for one, blah-blah-blah.  How could the first person subjective singular pronoun refer to any more than one?

It is better to die on your feet than to live a lifetime on your knees. That is, unless you choose live a lifetime on your feet.

It would suck to die on your knees.

Metaphorically speaking, I don't get it.

Things are more like they are today then they've ever been before....
Listen to the 'mustn'ts'. Listen to the 'don'ts'. Listen to the 'shouldn'ts', the 'impossibles', the 'won'ts'. Listen to the 'you'll never haves', then listen close to me... Anything can happen . Anything can be.

There's 2 types of people in the world... those who say "there are 2 types of people in the world" and those who actually say something profound.

This answer only seems like it sucks. It's really just fallacious.

Underachieving metaphors and other mangled sayings are like half of one, six dozen of the other.

If you think that I'm going to post here, you got another thing coming.

(That's totally wrong.  It should be, "If you believe that I would post something here then perhaps you should reconsider.")

Killed by Death

(Sorry Lemmy, it should be 'Killed to death', and it still doesn't say anything.)
