I have a lot of favorite sayings... I literally have notebooks full of all sorts of fortune cookie wisdom.

The absolute best saying, however, that I have come across yet (for just overall general purpose use) is the one in my sig attributed to Wang Shujin...

My other absolute life long favorite is:

Saru mo ki kara ochiru

Or:

Even monkeys fall from trees

Gotta love it.

Gambarimasu.

"Be not afraid of going slowly. Be afraid only of standing still."

Maybe I'll use this as a sig.

Actually the full quote is:

"Try not. Do. Or do not. There is no try". :asian:


My personal favorites:

"Nobody ever drowned in sweat" .... I find motivation in that when
my brain tells me to quit.

"Hit first, hit hard, and keep right on hitting".

"Surrender, hell! We just got here".

I've been told they were said by Chesty Puller, the greatest
Marine to ever live. I heard them when I was in boot camp.

Beware the fury of a patient man. -John Dryden

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Bless矇d is he who shepherds the weak through the Valley of Darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper, and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down with great vengeance and furious anger, those who attemp to poison and destroy my brothers, and you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee... -Ezekial 25:17

you can thank Pulp Fiction for that one, great movie.
:D only a stoner like Tarintino coulda gotten a cast like that in a movie.

Hey Chronuss,

I think that quote from Ezekial is off, the movie version is different than the bible version.

Here is a couple:

Shared pain is decreased, shared joy is increased.
~Spider Robinson

Neither a fortress nor a virgin will hold out long after they begin to negotiate.
~Benjamin Franklin

The universe is not only queerer than we imagine, but queerer than we can imagine.
~J.B.S. Haldane


A human being should be able to:

Change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.

Specialization is for insects.
~Robert A. Heinlein

Here's some more.......

"The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you've got it made."

"All my life I've wanted to be someone; I guess I should have been more specific."

"My opinions may have changed, but not the fact that I'm right."

"Those are my principles. If you don't like them I have others."

"You must believe in free will; there is no choice."

"I haven't failed, I've found 10,000 ways that don't work."

"Why does the Air Force need expensive new bombers? Have the people we've been bombing over the years been complaining?"

"Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein."
