    Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he is not, a Sense of Humor to console him for what he is -- Francis Bacon, Sr.
    We should always laugh at ourselves and never take ourselves too seriously!!


    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming.... WOW, What A Ride!!! -- Unknown

    I like a bunch:

    “A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back when you have forgotten the words.”


    “Not shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.”


    Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

    A pat on the back is only a few inches from a kick in the ass.


    I don't say we all ought to misbehave, but we ought to look as if we could.
    —Orson Welles

    I have great faith in fools - my friends call it self-confidence. —Edgar Allen Poe

    "I had a linguistics professor who said that it's man's ability to use language that makes him the dominant species on the planet. That may be. But I think there's one other thing that separates us from animals. We aren't afraid of vacuum cleaners."
    —Jeff Stilson

    "I like to tell people I have the heart of a small boy. Then I say it's in a jar on my desk." —Stephen King

    Some cause happiness wherever they go. Others whenever they go.

    A true friend is one who thinks you're a good egg even though you're half-cracked

    The next time you start thinking that you're a person of some importance, try ordering someone else's dog around
    Don't take yourself too seriously.
    He who laughs last thinks slowest

    The early bird may get the worm but the second mouse gets the cheese

    "Be wary of strong drink. It can make you shoot at tax collectors... and miss."
    "Never insult anyone by accident."
    "Never underestimate the power of human stupidity."
    -Robert Heinlein
    just good wisdom there

    Default an Epitaph

    An actual Epitaph on an old tombstone in England:

    "Here lies Martin Englebroad
    Have mercy on my soul, Lord God
    as I would do were I Lord God
    and thou wert Martin Englebroad."
    I like that.

    "To the man who is afraid, everything rustles." Sophocles

    "A loving person lives in a loving world. A hostile person lives in a hostile world; everyone you meet is your mirror." Ken Keyes Jr.

    "Plans are useless, planning....is priceless! All plans FAIL upon first contact with the enemy." General D.D. Eisenhower

    "Only dead fish swim With the current." ?

    "By a small sample we may judge the whole piece." Migeul de Cervantes

    "If you can't bite, don't show your teeth." Yiddish Proverb

    "Man cannot discover new oceans unless he is willing to lose sight of the shore." Andre Gide

    "Personal excellence is possible only if you have a dream and a plan and if you persist in the face of all obstacles." Terry Orlick, PhD


    I LOVE meaningful quotes. Thanks...
    These are just a few that I can come up with off the top of my head.

    Everything that has been achieved is merely a preliminary exercise for the achievements to come, and no one - not even one who
    has reached perfection-can say he has reached the end.

    Thumbs up Re: Quotes if you got um...

    Here are a few that I like:

    1) "Success is a journey, not a destination."
    (usually attributed to Bruce Lee, but I think someone else may have said it first)

    2) "Anger can often constipate your retaliatory efforts." -Ed Parker, Sr.

    3) "A teacher shouldn’t teach you to be good. They should teach you how to teach yourself to be good." - Mr. John Sepulveda

    4) From the movie Bubba HoTep:
    Elvis: Ask not what your rest home can do for you. Ask what you can do for your rest home.
    JFK: Hey, you're copying my best lines!
    Elvis: Then let me paraphrase one of my own. Let's take care of business.
    JFK: Just what are you getting at, Elvis?
    Elvis: I think you know what I'm gettin' at Mr. President. We're gonna kill us a mummy.

    5) Also from Bubba Ho-Tep:
    Elvis: Don't make me use my stuff on ya, baby!

    "Don't ever try to teach a pig how to sing; it's a waste of time and it annoys the pig."

    It's really a take-off from the biblical quote about casting your pearls before swine.

    You can teach someone something until they are ready for it.

    4. "Millions of years ago, there was no such thing as the wheel. One day, some primitive guys were watching their wives drag a dead mastodon to the food preparation area. It was exhausting work; the guys were getting tired just WATCHING. Then they noticed some large, smooth, rounded boulders, and they had an idea: They could sit on the boulders and watch! This was the first in a series of breakthroughs that ultimately led to television."

    “The distinctive human problem from time immemorial has been the need to spiritualize human life, to lift it onto a special immortal plane, beyond the cycles of life and death that characterize all other organisms.”
    ~Ernest Becker

    “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

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

    Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
    ~Calvin Coolidge


    “He, who will not reason, is a bigot; he, who cannot, is a fool; and he, who dares not, is a slave.”
    ~William Drummond
    Pekiti Tirsia Kali and Kenpo Karate
    www.blackbirdmartialarts.com

    “He, who will not reason, is a bigot; he, who cannot, is a fool; and he, who dares not, is a slave.”
