Ed, you reminded me of my favorite quote... more of an entire poem:


Starkle Starkle little twink
What the heck you am I think
I'm not under the Alcafluence of Incohol
Like Some thinkle peep I am
I only had tee martoonis
And the drunker I sit here the longer I get
Oh I fool so feelish
Take me drunk now, I think I'm home.

- Ken LePage

My favorite quote was said by Gandalf the Wizard in the Mines of Moria (from the Lord of the Rings, by J. R. R. Tolkien):

"Many that live deserve death. And some die that deserve life. Can you give that to them? Then be not too eager to deal out death in the name of justice, fearing for your own safety. Even the wise cannot see all ends"

My favorite is the quote I have. "By any means necessary" by Malcolm X. Here is another one though " I'd rather die like a soldier than live like a coward.
By any means necessary

One I almost forgot that came recently...

The late Bob Hope was asked where he wanted to be buried... he smirked and replied "surprise me"

I thought that was one of the best things I have ever heard!!
Yah but have you ever smelled cheese? Some of it stinks eh?

This one isn't so interesting, but I try to remember it while at work:

"Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be bent out of shape"

Just let it go....o>

"I used to think I died and went to hell. This isn't hell, but you can see it from here." ---The Crow

I like that one Invictus,one of my favorites is from a movie too.

"I'm an insect who dreamt he was a man,and loved it. But now the dream is over and the insect is awake."

It's from the Fly. And I love the creepy insight he is aware of as his mind and body take on the form of something in between the two creatures.

BTW,can anyone tell me how to quote and have it appear in the white box rather than editing the rest of the post out?

German Tour Guide: You vill find more on Germany's contributions to ze arts in ze pamphlets ve have provided.
Brian Griffin: Yeah, about your pamphlet... uh, I'm not seeing anything about German history between 1939 and 1945. There's just a big gap.

OK, ok, Invictus's quote about weasels and jet engines reminded me of a whole series of quotes from a TV programme called 'The Office' - it's English, so I don't know if it's been screened in Canada and US, but I think the quotes are funny anyway:

My favorites are: 1, 16, 19, and today, particuarly, number 8!

1. Eagles may soar high, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

2. Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.

3. There may be no 'I' in team, but there's a 'ME' if you look hard enough.

4. Process and Procedure are the last hiding place of people without the wit and wisdom to do their job properly.

5. Remember that age and treachery will always triumph over youth and ability.

6. Never do today that which will become someone else's responsibility tomorrow.

7. Show me a good loser and I'll show you a LOSER!

8. Put the key of despair into the lock of apathy. Turn the knob of mediocrity slowly and open the gates of despondency - welcome to a day in the average office.

9. What does a squirrel do in the summer? It buries nuts. Why? Cos then in winter time he's got something to eat and he won't die. So, collecting nuts in the summer is worthwhile work. Every task you do at work think, would a squirrel do that? Think squirrels. Think nuts.

10. When confronted by a difficult problem, you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question, "How would the Lone Ranger handle this?"

11. Accept that some days you are the pigeon, and some days you are the statue.

12. If your boss is getting you down, look at him through the prongs of a fork and imagine him in jail.

13. If you can keep your head when all around you have lost theirs, then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation.

14. You don't have to be mad to work here! In fact we ask you to complete a medical questionnaire to ensure that you are not.

15. If you treat the people around you with love and respect, they will never guess that you're trying to get them sacked.

16. If at first you don't succeed, remove all evidence you ever tried.

17. You have to be 100% behind someone, before you can stab them in the back.

18. If work was so good, the rich would have kept more of it for themselves.

19. Those of you who think you know everything are annoying to those of us who do.

20. There's no 'I' in 'team'. But then there's no 'I' in 'useless smug colleague', either. And there's four in 'platitude-quoting idiot'. Go figure.

21. Know your limitations and be content with them. Too much ambition results in promotion to a job you can't do.

22. Make good use of your cylindrical filing unit, the one you mainly keep under your desk.

23. Quitters never win, winners never quit. But those who never win and never quit are idiots.

24. If you're gonna be late, then be late and not just 2 minutes - make it an hour and enjoy your breakfast.

25. Remember the 3 golden rules: 1. It was like that when I got here. 2. I didn't do it. 3. (To your Boss) I like your style.

26. Set out to leave the first vapour trail in the blue-sky scenario.

27. Statistics are like a lamp-post to a drunken man - more for leaning on than illumination.

28. A problem shared is a problem halved, so is your problem really yours or just half of someone else’s?

29. Is your work done? Are all pigs fed, watered and ready to fly?....

30. You don't have to be mad to work here, but you do have to be on time, well presented, a team player, customer service focused and sober!!

31. I thought I could see the light at the end of the tunnel, but it was just some b*stard with a torch, bringing me more work.

32. Avoid employing unlucky people - throw half of the pile of CVs in the bin without reading them.
