Do you have a favorite saying, or quote?


A long time ago a man once told me "Believe none of what you hear, and only half of what you see". I never did check to see if this was a mainstream quote. I just preferred to keep it the wisdom of the man who said it to me. This phrase has stuck with me throughout the years. I'm just wondering if anyone has anything similar, that has stuck with them over time.

    Great quotes, especially love the ones from "The Lord of the Rings" by J R R Tolkien.

    I must agree, it costs nothing to be kind and humanity would benefit greatly if people could show more kindness!

    Love this. Just wish many parents would understand and give their children the freedom to live their life and decide their own destiny. Being overly protective limits one's creativity. Children may learn more from their mistakes.
