"Always keep an edge on your knife, son.
Always keep an edge on your knife.
'Cause a good sharp edge is a man's best hedge
Against the vague uncertainties of life.
Yes a good sharp edge is a man's best hedge
Against the uncertain vagaries of life."

From my Grandfather:

"A man who does nothing makes no mistakes."

Had to think about that a minute before I got it. Wise and helpful advice, especially after a tough day.
