“Life is like a sandwich—the more you add to it, the better it becomes”

"Life is like a sandwich—the more you add to it, the better it becomes” is a saying that has been printed on many images. “Life is like a sandwich: the more you add to it the better it becomes” was printed in The Jackson County Banner (Brownstown, IN) on October 22, 1991. Authorship is unknown.

“Life is like a sandwich—you have to fill it with the best ingredients” is a similar saying.
