World's Best Concise Quotes

As my readers have probably sussed out, I love to quote. What's not to love? As Mark Twain said (probably—most really good quotes seem to be attributed to Twain, The Bible, Shakespeare, or Casablance), "I get paid the same word rate for quotes as I get paid to make things up."

This list has a twist: State the knowledge in under 10 words. I'd add a few, of course.

Sharp acids corrode their own containers. Albanian Proverb
80% of success is showing up. Woody Allen
More will mean worse. Kingsley Amiss
Nature uses as little as possible of anything. Thomas Kepler
Don't be humble. You're not that great. Golda Meir
After enlightenment, the laundry. Zen koan

Any quotes to add?
