Salada tea was one of my parents' favorites. And I remember reading the Salada Taglines as soon as I could read. As a matter of fact, I believe it helped me learn to read because I'd see a word I didn't know on the tagline and ask my parents about it. I hadn't been reading the little sayings printed on the backs of the tag for a long time but recently started reading them again. Here are some of my favorites.
A meeting is an event where the minutes are kept and the hours are lost.
Do today what you may not get to do tomorrow.
Among economists, the real world is often a special case.
To err is human - to blame it on someone else is even more human.
Insurance is what keeps people poor so they can die rich.
He who laughs last probably didn't get the joke.

These little sayings don't prove anything and they won't win an argument for you. They won't change the world and they won't give you the answers to the tests you need to take. They are just fun to read and think about. And some quotes from some pretty famous people have been used as the taglines, too. Since it's only a couple of days since the holiday named for him, here's one for one of the famous people to end this post.
Let no man pull you low enough to hate him. Martin Luther King Jr.
