    I have always remembered Robert Kennedy's quote

    "Some men see things as they are and ask why? I dream things that never were and ask.why not?"

    The quote was actually from George Bernard Shaw but most people would attribute it to Robert Kennedy.

    I have so many uplifting and positive quotes that I always remember but when I get to see questions like this, only one quote enters my mind: Live fast, die young and have a beautiful corpse. smile

    I always remember this quote I don't know who said it but I like it a lot. It always keeps me grounded. "Money can't buy you happiness"

    Degas was having dinner at a friend's house.  The friend was showing off his phone and a pre-arranged call came through.  Degas said

    'It rang, you ran.'

    I certainly do have a favourite quote, and it definitely applies to me!
    " You're born, life's a bitch, you die!" 
    I don't intend to offend anyone with it's coarseness!

      I'm not offended at all, but someone with that attitude should just skip the middle part of that quote.

    Live the present and remember the past, but don't let the past live in your present.

    I applied this quote in a job that I had once.

    Charlton Heston said, " Political correctness is nothing more than a violation of your right to free speech." Makes sense when you think about it. My comment is about the quote, not the person making it.

    I have a cork board with this quote on it "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take"~Wayne Gretzky.  This is so true, always inspires me to take chances and never give up!
