Posted:Read a couple of goodies recently will post more as I find them
"the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams" eleanor roosevelt

If you have struggled yet persisted with learning even the most basic moves you will appreciate this one all the more- "Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared beleive that something inside them was superior to circumstance" - possibly from General Lee(dind't quite work for him;-))

'I dare to beleive I will never become so good at something that I cannot be taught or so bad at something that I cannot teach someone else' Me just now after thinking about that last quote, and remembering once when a fellow newbie(and self professed expert) of fire would not let me touch her poi untill the last of the kero was gone, then let me play with the black lifeless balls, only to then harrass me for the next hour too teach her all I knew that she did not.

'No event will ever disturb us quite so much as the meaning we choose to give it.' paraphrased from Epictectus - Greek Philosoper BC

Whenever I decide to do something completely unexpected, someone invariably tells me why I cannot, I queitly tell them this phrase and go about doing it anyway.
"The reasonable man adapts himself to the world. The unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unresonable man" - George Berhard Shaw

I do ramble when I'm tired, I hope you all like the quotes, more to follow soon Gotta go sleep.

Posted:What? No Bill Hicks?

What did moths bump into before the electric light bulb was invented? Boy, the lightbulb really screwed the moth up didnt it?
Are there moths on their way to the sun now going "Its gonna be worth it!"
-Bill Hicks

I don't do drugs anymore, than, I'd say the average touring funk band. I had to add it up. No, I don't do drugs anymore, either. But I'll tell you something about drugs, I used to do drugs, but I'll tell you something honestly about drugs, honestly, and I know it's not a very popular idea, you don't hear it very often anymore, but it is the truth- I had a great time doing drugs. Sorry. Never murdered anyone, never robbed anyone, never raped anyone, never beat anyone, never lost a job, a car, a house, a wife or kids, laughed my ass off, and went about my day. Sorry.
-Bill Hicks

But I know we all cant stay here forever,
so I want to write my words on the face of today and then theyll paint it.
-Shannon Hoon

my signature is also the
late great prophet Bill Hicks

Posted:Here's a few of my favorites:

"The end of the human race will be that it will eventually die of civilization."

"When you are dancing with your partner, for that two & a half minutes, you are in love with each other. You're corresponding with each other by the moves that you make. It's a love affair, between you and your partner and the music. You feel the music, you feel your partner, she feels you and she feels the music. So there the three of you are together. You've got a triangle, you know. Which one do you love best?"
~Frankie Manning

"We should consider every day lost in which we do not Dance at least once."
~Nietzsche

"Discourse on virtue and they pass by in droves, whistle and dance the shimmy and you've got an audience."
~Diogenes

"Women have to do everything that a man does, but backwards and in high heels!"
~Ginger Rogers

(Sorry, an entire section of my Quote Journal is devoted to dance quotes)

"C makes it easy to shoot yourself in the foot, C++ makes it harder but when you do, it blows away your whole leg."
~Bjarne Straustrup


And of those of you discussing infinity...

"Black holes are where God divided by zero."
~Steven Wright

This next ones a bit long, but please, take the time to read it, its funny, or red it when ur stoned, ull appresheate (cant spell) it more:



A MILLENNIUM PRAYER FOR THE

STRESSED IN RESOURCES





Grant me the serenity to accept things I cannot change.





The courage to change things I cannot accept.





And the wisdom to hind the bodies of the people that I had to kill today, because they got on my nerves.





And also help me to be careful of the toes I step on today as they may be connected to the feet I may have to kiss tomorrow.





Help me to give 100% at work,



12% Monday

23% Tuesday

40% Wednesday

20% Thursday

And 5% Friday





And help me to remember….

When I'm having a bad day and it seems people are trying to wind me up….

It takes 42 muscles to frown

28 to smile

And only 4 to extend my arm and smack someone in the mouth….

Posted:hmm....

There is apparently one about Albert Aienstein being drunk, but I dont remember it.

"Don't think you can...know you can! Your human body is the most impressive tool that you will ever own. Even if you can't control everything...you can always control something. Your body - Use it...Amuse it...because one day...you're going to lose it."- Jeff Hardy

"I would definitely love to be in love. I now have my career in line, and it would be nice to come across someone who can be my best friend. it's not a sexual thing. The best relationships between men and women are built on friendships. Whenever I do fall in love, I will be more giving than anyone else ever could be. I feel like I have a lot of good qualities to offer someone. I would make them feel like the Queen of the World and like their birthday was every day."
"I want people to realize that it's not ridiculous to have a dream and try to obtain it. Go for it."
"If you don't stand for something....you'll fall for anything."
^^ All From Matt Hardy

The person behind me paid $380 to see the back of my sign"
^^ Someones sign at a wrestling event last year.

You laugh because Im different I laugh because you're all the same
Dream as if you'll live forever...live as if you'll die
^^ Random quotes

And I have more somewhere, I just cant find them
