    Just wondering if anyone has any cool quotes?



    Here are some i like;

    It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.
    ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Coffee isn't my cup of tea.
    ~ Samuel Goldwyn

    Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.
    ~ Groucho Marx

    Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
    ~ Mark Twain

    If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs - you're probably not in full possession of the facts.....

    Here's some more good quotes:

    "We're going to launch that nuke and ride it all the way into history." (Metal Gear Solid)
    "He who controls the past commands the future. He who commands the future...conquers the past." (Command & Control)
    "You have been doomed since you lost the ability to love." (Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Alucard speaking to Dracula).

    "if you're gonna die, die with your boots on!" (Iron Maiden)

    And several old favorites from the great Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson...

    "Then, Sir, we will give them the bayonet!" (when he heard the line was being pushed back at Bull Run)

    "You may be whatever you resolve to be" (from his diary/journal)

    and his last words...

    "Let us cross over the river, and rest under the shade of the trees..."


    and one from Thomas Paine that has always rung true with me

    "If there must be trouble let it be in my day, that
    my child may have peace."

    and, of course.. the one in my sig among many others.

    Lots and lots of quotes, too many to name.

    This one in Dutch:

    "Men doet wat men kan en zodoende blijft er heel wat liggen."
    (Ollie B.Bommel ;))
    (impossible to translate, at least for me)

    And more closely (I mean, with respect to this and other boards):

    Many quotes that many of you all have in your sigs.
    Too much again to name them all.

    The one in the sig of Corrine:
    Sassy Girl: "Surely as the sun rises in the morning, it sets at night."

    The one in the sig of LWM:
    "Behind every Blue Pixel is a Pink Pixel whose love makes him strive to be a better... err, Pixel."

    The ones in the sigs from Gracie and Janie at DSLR.

    The Susan thread :D

    And ..... almost everything Blaze has posted on this board :D

    I have a few favorites quotes I would like to share:

    All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsions, habit, reason, passion, desire.
    Aristotle

    I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is over self.
    Aristotle

    He who has a thousand friends has not a friend to spare, while he who has one enemy shall meet him everywhere.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson

    A few heavies and a few favourites:

    Books won’t stay banned. They won’t burn. Ideas won’t go to jail. In the long run of history, the censor and the inquisitor have always lost. The only sure weapon against bad ideas is better ideas. The source of better ideas is wisdom.

    To see what is right and not to do it is want of courage: Confucius

    "A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools." (Douglas Adams)

    "I love deadlines. I love the whooshing sound they make as they fly by." (Douglas Adams)

    "For a moment, nothing happened. Then, after a second or so, nothing continued to happen." (Douglas Adams)

    "The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' but 'That's funny ...'" (Isaac Asimov)

    "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." (Edmund Burke)[/COLOR]

    "I taught them everything they know, but not everything I know." (James Brown)

    Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And when you look long into the abyss, the abyss also looks into you.
    -F. Nietzche

    here are some more thought provoking quotes i really like>

    The measure of a person's knowledge is the actions they take. (Saint Francis of Assisi)

    A friend is the one who comes in when the whole world has gone out. – Grace Pulpit

    I expect to pass through the world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness I can show to any creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer it, for I shall not pass this way again.

    Even if it’s a little thing, do something for those who have need of a man’s help, something for which you get no pay but the privilege of doing it. For, remember, you don’t live in a world all your own. Your brothers are here too. - Albert Schweitzer Nobel Peace Prize winner, 1952
