I love great quotes... they can be inspiring, thought provoking, stirring...
I have several favorites, but I love this one:
"There is no comparison between that which is lost by not succeeding and that which is lost by not trying." - Francis Bacon
What's your favorite quote (and who is it by, if you can remember)?
"Two hundred and seventy pounds"
By the cheaper garage.
"This above all to thine own self be true"
Shakespeare, of course.
Let us dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago: to tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world.
"Novelty lies in the quality of the artist's perception rather than in eccentricities of form."
"Most of our so-called reasoning consists in finding arguments for going on believing as we already do"
--James Harvey Robinson
"He who has a why to live can bear almost any how"
by ; Friedrich Nietzsche
I LOVE a good quote too. Just the thought of saying something so profound in your life that it actually outlives you and goes onto effect other people after your gone sends a shiver down my spine.
Here are my four favorite quotes:
"If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there'd be peace."
"Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves. Here’s Tom with the weather."
"There's a reason we separate military and the police: one fights the enemy of the state, the other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people."
Admiral Adama (Character in Battlestar Galactica)
I'm a bit of a conspiracy theorist 'tin-foil hat' nut which explains the last quote. LOL Also, just because it was on a TV show, it doesn't make it any less important as far as I'm concerned.
I liked the John Lennon Quote. Thx for sharing!
“If you don’t like how things are, change it! You’re not a tree. ” Jim Rohn
“Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't after you” - Kurt Cobain
“The key to wisdom is knowing all the right questions.”
– John Simone
I love this one:
“And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” – Abraham Lincoln
"When things go bad, don't go with them." - Elvis Presley
Thanks for the mulligan rotl.
