  • I love good quotes!

    I apologize in advance if theres a thread of quotes already, I looked and didn't find one.

    I'm a quote person, you name it, sports, inspirational, motivational, funny, I like them. What about you? Do you have any to share?


    I'll start with one of my all-time favorites:

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


    Thanks, Bob

                      Song lyrics that I love from Mumford and Sons:

                      You must know life to see decay
                      Love, it will not betray you
                      Dismay or enslave you, it will set you free
                      Be more like the man you were made to be
                      There is a design, an alignment, a cry
                      Of my heart to see,
                      The beauty of love as it was made to be

                                  "Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."

                                  Here is a bonus quote, which seems to be apropos (although maybe it would be better in the NDNation thread):

                                  Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain; and most fools do.
                                  - Benjamin Franklin

                                      Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats.

                                                  It's silly and nonsensical, like a lot of Yoda's quotes.
