Slogans from Members

OA members have many useful slogans. These are not officially sanctioned by the OA World Service Office, but they are generously shared by our members. Here are just a few to get started.

  • Fail to plan, plan to fail.
  • Just for today.
  • Come for the vanity. Stay for the sanity.
  • One is too many, and a thousand is not enough.
