A few of Murphy's Laws

  1. Nothing is as easy as it looks.

    To succeed in politics, it is often necessary to rise above your principles.

    Nature always sides with the hidden flaw.

    Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

    Two wrongs are only the beginning.

    If you perceive that there are four possible ways in which a procedure can go wrong, and circumvent these, then a fifth way, unprepared for, will promptly develop.

    Every solution breeds new problems..

    If there is a worse time for something to go wrong, it will happen then..

    If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.

    Exceptions prove the rule ... and wreck the budget.

    Whenever you set out to do something, something else must be done first.

    It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious.

    If there is a possibility of several things going wrong, the one that will cause the most damage will be the one to go wrong.

    Left to themselves, things tend to go from bad to worse.

    Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.

    Whenever you set out to do something, something else must be done first.

    Everything takes longer than you think..

    Two wrongs are only the beginning.
