From a sign in front of a church:

All Saints have a past; all Sinners have a future.

From the Diary of Lazarus Long

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!

How much Heinlein have you read? I knew where this quote came from before I saw the title. Shrek and I are HUGE Heinlein fans.

Heinlen

i have read almost everything his has written, starting many years ago with his juveniles and from there up to about 1973, with Time Enough for Love.
I have not read any of his later ones:
But, my favorite quote from the Diary is:
Money is truthful. If a man speaks to you of his honor, make him pay cash

Robert A. Heinlein, GG...Heinlein has his own shelf in my house and I am a member of The Heinlein Society. I've done talks at the library and High Schools about his books. My most favorite author.

The Number of The Beast, The Cat Who Walks Through Walls and To Sail Beyond the Sunset are all stories connected to Lazarus Long.

Friday and Job are different stories, stand-alones.

From Teddy Rosevelt

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
