Ohhhh...a quotes thread :D

Here are some of my faves:

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass... it's about learning to dance
in the rain.


Some people are like slinkies...
They're really good for nothing,
but they still bring a smile to your face
when you push them down a flight of stairs.


Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "Woo hoo! What a ride!"


Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today


An American Indian elder described his own inner struggles this way: "Inside of me there two dogs. One of the dogs is mean and evil. The other dog is good. The mean dog fights the good dog all the time." When asked which dog wins, he reflected for a moment and replied, "The one I feed the most."


Never help a person who doesn't help anybody else.



"Don't wait around for your life to happen to you.
Find something that makes you happy, and do it.
Because everything else is all just background noise."

I saw a program about one man and his connection with Dartmoor, (my home patch). At the end was this quote:

"We must become the change in the world that we wish to see."

Ghandi. (I think).

"Remember those posters that said: "Today is the first day of the rest of your life"? Well, that's true of every day but one.... the day you die."

I have lived my life by this one, no idea who said it - I AM IN INDIVIDUAL, My rights, as an individual must be protected, as this world would not be as diverse as it is with out me

and a few more -

Change your attitude and you will change your life - anon

What people say you cannot do, you try and find you can. - Henry David Thoreau

The creator made the world, come and see it – Prima Indian prayer

The Zen lunacy bards of old rucksack wanderers Dharma Bums refusing to subscribe to the general demand that they consume production and there fore have to work for the privilege of consuming all that crap that they didn’t rely want any way, TV cars , Refrigerators, deodorants etc. All of them prisoned in a system of work produce consume work produce consume – Jack Kerouac “Dharma bums”


Bodies Heal
Chicks dig scars
Pain is only temporary
Glory is forever - I think this was from a Mint Sauce cartoon -

I’m going to settle down and get a real job, Emperor of the earth - Mork

You ride, and you ride often. While others are still rolling over in bed, you’d rather be rolling over rocks. Looking for a cooler view, a bigger hill, the ultimate descent. Finding a trail that lead to nowhere and ultimately everywhere – From a Giro advert BITD
