For the last 15 years or so I've been pasting great quotes I come across into a Word file.  It's a mix of insight, humor, inspiration and thought provocation.  Every once in a while I scan through them and am impacted all over again.  I'm going to start dropping one out here every now and then to share.  Maybe they'll stir some discussion or maybe they'll just make you laugh or think.

 

As I was scanning my file last night this first one jumped out at me as timely:
 
"If you're not having fun, if you're not getting paid enough, and if you're not making an enormous difference, then why are you staying there?"  --David Gerrold

"Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit." --Aristotle

Darth I enjoy this thread, It reminds me of my days in education. I also had a bank/file of quotes. I think I held onto it but fear it is my attic . Currently it is way to cold to go up and venture for it. In a previous post I did leave a note that one should pick up a book to learn. I would be huge hypocrite if I went and pulled something off the internet. Keep them coming please , last one really hit home.

Thanks!  I'm glad you enjoy them.  Yes, that last one was added to my collection in just the last year.  I've been trying to practice it but fail all too often.

I used to play against a few drunken idiots in College and University. I just recently discovered this game online, playing my first matches against real-world opponents. After 100 games, I'm now one of the top 10 players in the world.

I also like the one on my profile page.

"The most perfect speed in the universe is being there."

From a 1979 movie with Peter Sellers called Being There.

Ok Darth, I could not get up in attic so I dusted off a couple of books.

"Life is not always a matter of holding good cards, but sometimes, playing a poor hand well."

-Jack London

"Fear urged him to go back,but growth drove him on."

-Jack London, White Fang

I picked up Sacred Journey of the Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman ,I noted many quotable lines way to many to choose  from so for any one interested check it out. I noticed a few others have picked up on this topic-GREAT !!!
