Habee...you beat me with your favorite Groucho quote. Here's mine:
Groucho: "If you fall out of that window and break both your legs, don't come running to me".
Human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.
You can't soar with the eagles if you're always out hooting with the owls!
"Do not worry about the people of your past. There is a reason they did not make it to your future." ~author unknown
I love quotes.
'I think being rich is when someone meets the requirements of their imagination.'
'some people walk in the rain, others just get wet.'
'man is free at the moment he wishes to be.'

Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home.

I don't know many quotes, so enjoying the ones here.
"Love others as you would yourself"
Jesus...... I think, lol
I'm tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin-deep. That's deep enough. What do you want, an adorable pancreas?
Eagles soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.
True beauty dwells in deep retreats, Whose veil is unremoved, Till heart with heart in concord beats, And the lover is beloved.
"Did you know my mother and your mother are both mothers?"
"When one door closes, another one opens: But we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones that open for us." -Alexander Graham Bell
"It's good to check the rear view mirror once in awhile, but if you spend the whole drive looking backwards, you're gonna crash." -My Driver's Ed Instructor
Maxima enim..patientia virtus
(Patience is the greatest virtue)
Flying is learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.
- Douglas Adams
Consistency requires you to be as ignorant today as you were a year ago.
There is no fear when one expects to be betrayed. What's truly terrifying is when betrayal is unexpected.
"The ultimate choice for a man, in as much as he is driven to transcend himself, is to create or to destroy, to love or to hate." Erich Fromm
Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.
If at first you don't succeed, then quit. There's no use being a damn fool about it.
Everything is relative,,,,
Ummm, I'm not sure who said that,,,
The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special.
Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won. It exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours.
It doesn't matter how you play the game. It's whether you win or lose.
I think that it's important for scientists to explain their work, particularly in cosmology. This now answers many questions once asked of religion.

Confucius Say "Virginity like bubble, one prick all gone".
He also said, "Man with hand in pocket, feel cocky all day".
And "Woman who fly plane upside down, have big hairy crack up!"
Confucius Say "Boy that go to bed with itchy bottom, wake up with stinky fingers"
“I just broke up with someone and the last thing she said to me was "You'll never find anyone like me again!" I'm thinking, "I should hope not! If I don't want you, why would I want someone like you."”
These are just silly and I have no idea where they come from but:
'On the road of life there are many flat squirrels who couldn't make up their minds.'
'Before you insult someone walk a mile in their shoes. That way you're a mile away and you have their shoes!'
I thought I already posted this, but it's no longer on the thread, so here goes:
"It is warmer in the summer than it is in the mountains."
