There are many things that we would throw away if we were not afraid that others might pick them up.
"There are four sorts of men:
He who knows not, and knows not he knows not; he is a fool - shun him;
He who knows not, and knows he knows not; he is simple - teach him;
He who knows, and knows not he knows; he is asleep - wake him;
He who knows, and knows he knows; he is wise - follow him...."
Now we know!
"The past is a foreign country, they do things differently there." - L. P. Hartley
"The race is not given to the swift nor the battle to the strong, but to those that endure until the end." (Biblical, I think)
"If they give you ruled paper, write the other way." - Juan Ramon Jimenez
Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
Quote: Why of course the people don't want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally the common people don't want war neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.
.... Hermann Goering

Steve Wright Quotes
- I was going 70 miles an hour and got stopped by a cop who said, "Do you know the speed limit is 55 miles per hour?" "Yes, officer, but I wasn't going to be out that long..."
- One time a cop pulled me over for running a stop sign. He said, "Didn't you see the stop sign?" I said, "Yeah, but I don't believe everything I read."
- I got my driver's license photo taken out of focus on purpose. Now when I get pulled over the cop looks at it (moving it nearer and farther, trying to see it clearly)... and says, "Here, you can go."
- The judge asked, "What do you plead?" I said, "Insanity, your honour, who in their right mind would park in the passing lane?"
- When I get real bored, I like to drive downtown and get a great parking spot, then sit in my car and count how many people ask me if I'm leaving.

Just go down to the end of tired and hang a left." So I went down to the end of tired, and just out of curiosity I hung a right. My mother was there, and she said "I thought I told you to go to sleep."
- I hate it when my foot falls asleep during the day because that means it's going to be up all night.
