Haha, That's cracking me up!

So many quotes... where to start..

"Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever."
— Mahatma Gandhi

"Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: "What! You too? I thought I was the only one."
— C.S. Lewis

"A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool."
— William Shakespeare

"I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be."
— Douglas Adams

"A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes."
— Mark Twain

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us."
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

A lot more of the smart things I can't begin to share are available. If you want just PM me, and I'll make your life really thoughtful.

If eating tasty stuff is a sin, I am certainly going south.

I like the ones in my signature. I will probably go nuts now trying to remember all the ones I like!

I have a little plaque that says, "I cleaned last week. Too bad you missed it."

I gave my mom and dad one years ago that says, "A happy marriage is the union of two good forgivers."

I gave my mom a cute plaque that said, "Today's menu: __Take it __Leave it."

A funny plaque that my mom had that was a paraphrase of a famous Clint Eastwood movie quote had a Spuds Mackenzie look-alike dog on it, and it said, "Go ahead. Make my bed!"

I have seen several versions of a quote I really like by Henry Ford (No one seems to be sure of the exact quote): "If you think you can or can't, you're probably right."

Barbara - I can see you are a long time thinker... I like the ones you shared.

Here's a few more from my bag of smarter people:

As we grow older, our bodies get shorter and our anecdotes longer.
Robert Quillen (boy do I know this one)

The 50-50-90 rule: Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there's a 90% probability you'll get it wrong.
Andy Rooney

Wise men make proverbs, but fools repeat them.
Samuel Palmer

I love women. They're the best thing ever created. If they want to be like men and come down to our level, that's fine.
Mel Gibson ( note I take wise thoughts wherever they come from)

Brigands demand your money or your life; women require both.
Samuel Butler

It's just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand. I beat people up.
Muhammad Ali (yah I know.. not much wisdom here, but it was funny)

"Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend."
— Albert Camus (this is a paradigm I wish I learned early)

"Give a man a fire and he's warm for the day, but set fire to him and he's warm for the rest of his life."
— Terry Pratchett (yah I know, stupid.. but it does make me laugh every time I read it)

"There is nothing better than a friend, unless it is a friend with chocolate."
— Charles Dickens (if you can't relate to this, leave DC immediately.)

More of my favorites:

'Om asato ma sadgamaya,
tamaso ma jyotirgamaya,
mrityorma amritamgamaya'

O god Take me to true from lie,
Take me towards light or enlightenment from dark or ignorance
Make me to eternity from death

'Gotosyo sochona nasti'

Don't worry about past
