Always remember you're unique. Just like everyone else.

If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

Don't worry; it only seems kinky the first time.

Good judgment comes from bad experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

Colin - I like the Bruce Lee one - I had always heard it a little different "Do not pray for a lighter load - instead pray for a stronger back" probably several different variations would work.



As a single step will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a path in the mind. To make a deep physical path we must walk it again and again. To make a deep mental path we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives - Thoreau

And as Bill Cosby put it, that makes no sense. The reason is just in case you get into an accident. But the problem is if you DO get into an accident, first you're gonna say it, and then you're gonna DO it!

Oh yeah-- I guess if I'm going to post to this thread, I should impart some words of wisdom, other than the ones from Henry Ford I show off with every post!!

My father always used to tell me (although I never listened):

It's better to be quiet and let people think you're stupid, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

Life is a bad joke. At least there is beer, and shiny rocks to play with.

I like that one Bill, I think it's from Sam Clemens.

Dana-- you might be right. Not sure, but I think I remember someone else telling me that at some point.

A wise philosopher once noted that an eagle's only obstacle to overcome for flying with greater speed and ease is the air. Yet if the air were to be withdrawn and the eagle were to fly in a vacum it would fall instantly to the ground unable to fly. The very element that offers resistance to flying is at the same time the condition for flight.

The main obstacle that a powerboat has to overcome is the water against the propeller yet if it were not for the same resistance the boat would not move.

This same law, that obstacles are conditions of success holds true for human life. A life free of obstacles and difficulties would reduce all possibilites and powers to zero.

Sometimes we just need to change our perspectives - not our problems.

I love to read Khalil Gibran's poems and quotes.

Your Children are not Your Children

They are the sons and daughters of life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.

You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

Khalil Gibran.

In life there are always undesirable things, so in order to feel better you just need to look at life from another direction.
