My religion consists of a humble admiration of the unlimitable superior who reveals Himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble minds. That deeply emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God.
-- Albert Einstein

The only substitute for good manners is fast reflexes.

When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane

On the other hand, you have...different fingers

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say will be misquoted, then used against you.

If you think nobody cares, try missing a couple of payments

Genius: One who can do almost anything except make a living.

Key Ring: A handy gadget that lets you lose all your keys at once.

We are born naked, wet, and hungry. Then things get worse.

Sometimes the majority only means that all the fools are on the same side.

Following the path of least resistance is what makes rivers and men crooked.

If you were going to die soon and had only one phone call you could make, who would you call and what would you say? And why are your waiting?

But the lies we live will always be confessed in the stories that we tell. (Orson Scott Card)

Children are natural mimics. They act like their parents in spite of every attempt to teach them good manners.

Children in the back seats of cars cause accidents, but accidents in the back seats of cars cause children.

Children seldom misquote you. In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn't have said.

Faith is not belief without proof, but trust without reservations. (Elton Trueblood)

Faithless is he who quits when the road darkens.(J.R.R. Tolkien, Lord of the Rings)

Faith makes all things possible. Love makes all things easy. Hope makes all things work.

Faith is believing in what you damn well know isnt true. Mark Twain

When Ghandi was asked what he thought of Western Civilization, he replied, I think its a great idea.

Love has reasons that reason knows nothing of.

The truth will set you free...but first, it will make you miserable.

Having the right to do it, doesn't mean it is right to do it.

Imbesi's Law of the Conservation of Filth: "In order for something to become clean, something else must become dirty."
Freeman's Extension: "...but you can get everything dirty without getting anything clean."

In the long run we get no more than we have been willing to risk giving. (Sheldon Kopp)

Knowing what to say is not always necessary; just the presence of a caring friend can make a world of difference. (Sheri Curry)

Leave loved ones always with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power. (Abraham Lincoln)

Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you. (Maori proverb)

Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent. Never let your morals stop you from doing what is right. (Isaac Asimov)

We occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of us pick ourselves up and hurry on as if nothing happened

We often fear being rejected so very much that we reject ourselves first before anyone else has the chance.

Not all those who wander are lost J.R.R. Tolkein

Learn as if you were to live forever, Live as if you were to die tomorrow

Make everyone think they are building a cathedral, not just laying bricks.

If, in the last few years you havent discarded a major opinion or acquired a new one, Check your Pulse. You may be dead.

Honesty is the best policy, however keeping your mouth shut is sometimes even better.

Never look down on someone unless you'e helping them up.

Shoot first, then whatever you hit, call it the target

If your mind goes blank, dont forget to turn off the sound.

An empty fridge is a frosty place

I've been listening to Unkle's album Psyence Fiction and lifted these quotes courtesy of Thom Yorke:

'I feel that this has given me the most incredible and wonderful thing that I have been given and also the worst. It's a mixed bag. I have been taken to the absolutely to the depths of extreme terror by this. I've had my whole soul undermined by it, on one hand - on the other hand in one sense my journey has been about finding joy.'

'If you're frightened of dying and your holding on, you'll see devils tearing your life away. But if you've made you're peace then the devils are really angels freeing you from the earth.'

-- Albert Einstein

back from the dead is this tread

And not to be mean or anything, but I think in this format, less is more. While a whole bunch of quotes are cool, I think they'd be better recieved if done in little short spurts of say half a dozen or less. just easier to read and makes the thread have more flow. Than people can have an easier time of responding with their own quotes.

(now watch this thread fade away )
