Quotes

Hey,
i would love to hear everyones favorite quotes!!
I have A TON of favorites but here are a few of my favorites:

"Each friend represents a world in us, a world not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born"

"Reinforce the stitch that ties us and i will do the same for you"

"The conviction of the rich that the poor are happier is no more foolish than the conviction of the poor that the rich are"

"Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound to gether. All things connect"

"Have a heart that never hardens, a temper that never ties, and a touch that never hurts"

and of course:

"He who laughs last, thinks slowest!"

xi love
tiff

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams" Eleanor Roosevelt

Friends are like wedgies... They know your inner self, they're intimately close, and it feels great when you picked out a good one!

All people dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their mind, wake in the morning to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous people, for they dream their dreams with open eyes, and make them come true.
-- T.E. Lawrence (AKA "Lawrence of Arabia")

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut. --Ernest Hemingway

All right, brain, I don't like you and you don't like me - so let's just do this and I'll get back to killing you with beer. --Homer
Simpson

a drunken man's words are a sober man's thoughts

If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we should find in each man's life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

*expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a
good person is a little like expecting the bull not to attack you because you are a vegetarian*

The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful,
to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some
difference that you have lived and lived well.
--Ralph Waldo Emerson, American essayist


"People's minds are changed through observation and not through argument" - Will Rogers


In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies,
but the silence of our friends.
--Martin Luther King


Realize that true happiness lies within you. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.

--Og Mandino, motivational speaker

Eschew obfuscation.

My lips are on fire
with my desire for you
So let me drink the water
Let me drink the wine
and if you're not my daughter,
Will you still be mine? ---"Ishtar"

Sisters don't let sisters drink hot chocolate alone. (on a coffee cup)

On the serious side, the quotes that play in my mind most often:

"It's good to have an end to journey towards, but it's the journey that matters in the end." - Ursula K. LeGuin

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, itís the only thing that ever has. "
- Margaret Mead

"Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. ... I am haunted by waters." - Norman MacLean, A River Runs Through It. [Not a quote as much as it is poetry, but I find this so calming and think of it often.]

And on the light side (all of unknown origin):

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

Remember, half the people you know are below average.

If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy all her friends?

Inside me, there's a thin woman trying to get out - but I can
usually shut the bitch up with some chocolate. (on a T-shirt)

"There's a lot of opportunities; if there aren't you can make them." - Pet Shop Boys

"Writing is easy. All you do is stare at a blank sheet of paper until drops of blood form on your head." - Gene Fowler
