"What you sow, is what you reap!" ( found in the Bible) -- it is in a way, similar to the golden rule: Do not do unto others what you dont want others to do unto you.
A common mistake people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.
'Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.'- Einstien
"Many things are opened by mistake, but none so frequently as the mouth."
I'm not sure who said it, but I love it and I try everyday to live by it.
There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle.
- Albert Einstein
AND I QUOTE....."I would rather you hate me for who i am , than for you to love me for who i am not" , author unknown ; AND , " If Honesty isnt everything , then it doesnt mean anything." author unknown ... I try to live by both of these ...and i think that they both are absolutely awesome .
"The secret of succes is for a man (woman) to be ready for his (her) opportunity when it comes." - Benjamin Desraily.
"To become truly immortal a work of art must surpass all human limits. Logic and common sense will only interfer but once these barriers are broken it will enter the realms of childhood visions and dreams" - Cherokke, a surrialist painter.
"I am become death, the destroyer of the worlds." - Oppenheimer quotes out of Hinduism's Bhagavat Gita after the first nuclear explosion.
"War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives." -- Gen. Smedley Butler, USMC
I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear--Dune
Pinky: Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight?
Brain: The same thing we do every night, Pinky - try to take over the world! --Animaniacs

"We must be careful about who we pretend to be, because who we pretend to be is who we truly are." ---Kurt Vonnegut (satirist, socialist, novelist).
Edith Wharton: "Life is always either a tightrope or a featherbed. Give me a tightrope."
my favorite quote is "if a thing exists, i need two of it." by me.
another is "i can't wait until tomorrow because i get better looking every day." i think my brother said that.
Reputedly from Sir Francis Bacon, a contemporary of William Shakespeare said: "Reading maketh the learned man, writing, the exact man, a discourse, the ready man." He was writing about being scholarly.
I also like the Scottish Philosopher, Thomas Carlisle, who on speaking about Creativity said: "That man is most original who can adapt from the greatest number of resources." Meaning, the more wider your base knowledge, the better your chances of coming up with something new. In other words, too narrow a specialization keeps you that way - narrow minded.
"Cowards die many times before their deaths, the valiant never taste of death but once." William Shakespeare
"You become responsible, forever, for those you tame" .....
"One runs the risk of weeping a little when one allows oneself to be tamed"
- Antoine de Saint Exupery
"This is the way the world ends: Not with a bang, but a whimper" - T.S. Eliot
"I think the worst thing that could happen to anybody would be to not be used for anything by anybody. Thank you for using me, even though I didn't want to be used by anybody" -Kurt Vonnegut
Its not what you know, its who you know.
Its not what you wear, its the way you wear it.
