    Great Quotes
    I enjoy reading the occasional sig line here that contains an interesting quote or two. So here is a question for you:

    What is your favorite quote or quotes? Found any good ones lately?

    Here are a couple that I've run across that I liked:

    "What a man does tells us what he is." - F.D. Huntington

    "The starting point for all achievement is desire." - Napoleon Hill

    "The path to success is to take massive, determined action." - Anthony Robbins
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    I'm paraphrasing here, but a former UN Secretary once stated:

    A problem without an immediate solution is not so much a problem as a fact. A fact that must be dealt with over time.

    "What you ignore is priceless to me"

    It's a song lyric, but I always liked it...

    And then, there are so very many from the Baz Luhrman Sunscreen Song (originally an Chicago Sun column, turned into a song).... including:

    --------------------------------

    Don't waste too much time on jealousy. Sometimes you're ahead. Sometimes you're behind. The race is long, and - in the end - it's only with yourself.

    --------------------------------

    Remember compliments you receive. Forget the insults. If you succeed in doing this, tell me how.

    --------------------------------

    Accept certain inalienable truths:
    Prices will rise. Politicians will philander. You, too, will get old.

    And when you do, you'll fantasize that when you were young, prices were reasonable, politicians were noble, and children respected their elders.

    --------------------------------


    There's more... but that will do for now.

    Paul

    Those who ignore the past are condemned to repeat it. - George Santayana

    A good plan violently executed today is better than a perfect plan next week - George S. Patton Jr.

    Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity. - George S. Patton Jr.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last. - Winston Churchill

    In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move. - Douglas Adams

    These hang over my desk:

    Under democracy one party always devotes its chief energies to trying to prove that the other party is unfit to rule - and both commonly succeed, and are right. H.L. Mencken

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost more than 300 games. 26 times I've been trusted to take the game winnig shot and I missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. . . and that's why I succeed. Michael Jordan

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    There's good, fast and cheap. Pick andy two.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    When you are born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that at the end, you're the one that's smiling and everyone around you is crying. (my favorite)

    I like:
    "Today is the first day of the remaining of my life" (maybe it even have some sense)
    "I don't do favoritism: I hate everyone equally"

    The first one is hard to translate, it means today is the first day of the remaining days of my life, and it probably dosen't help at all

    Here are a few of my favorites. I don't know who said some of them though....


    You can lead a fool to wisdom, but you can't make him think

    Hear and you forget; see and you remember; do and you understand.

    Choose your friends by their character and your socks by their color. Choosing your socks by their character makes no sense, and choosing your friends by their color is unthinkable.

    If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything - Dr. Phil McGraw

    To ask is a moments shame, not to ask, and remain ignorant, is a lifelong shame.

    Treat each day as your last, one day you will be right.

    All I ask is a chance to prove that money can't make me happy.

    Work to become, not to acquire. - Confucius

    and last but not least....

    A good friend will come and bail you out of jail... but, a true friend will be sitting next to you saying, "Damn...that was fun!

    I cannot put a name to my favorites but I think we all know where they originated.

    "Your trusted third party"

    "Tracking is not affected"

    "They are in compliance"
    One day parasites and their ilk will be made illegal, I bet a few Lawyers will be pissed off when the day comes.
