    I saw a quote on here a while back.

    It said something along the lines of "it's easier to count your chickens before they hatch becasue they won't stand still after"

    Does anyone out there know this quote or who said it?

    Thanks much!

    It was me... just kidding it originally was from a fairytale the milkmaid and her bucket or something like that. I am not sure about the ending I think someone added that.

    I used to have this quote in my siggy:

    " People who count their chickens before they are hatched act very wisely, because chickens run about so absurdly that it is impossible to count them accurately.:
    -Oscar Wilde

    Is that the one you were thinking of?
