Experience is that marvelous thing that enables you recognize a mistake when you make it again. F. P. Jones

Franklin P. Jones (1908 – 1980) was a Philadelphia reporter, public relations executive and humorist. He wrote quips and quotes that entertained readers of major publications for years.

He was known nationally during the 1940s and 50s for his column “Put it this Way” in the Saturday Evening Post. “Put it this Way” set a record as the longest continuously published feature in the Saturday Evening Post.

Some more really funny quotes of Franklin P. Jones:
“It’s a strange world of language in which skating on thin ice can get you into hot water.”
“Love doesn’t make the word go ’round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.”
“The only thing that will really prevent baldness is hair.”
“The only problem with having nothing to do is you can’t stop and rest.”
“Anybody who thinks talk is cheap should get some legal advice.”
“Bravery is being the only one who knows you’re afraid.”
“An autobiography usually reveals nothing bad about its writer except his memory.”
“Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they’re going to catch you in next.”
“One trouble with developing speed reading skills is that by the time you realize a book is boring you’ve already finished it.”
“The most efficient labor-saving device is still money.”
“You’re an old-timer if you can remember when setting the world on fire was a figure of speech.”
